Comedy champ comes to Firehouse Arts Center

Renowned comic Ellis Rodriguez performing in Pleasanton

Ellis Rodriguez, the San Francisco Comedy Champion for 2017, will be coming to Pleasanton's Firehouse Arts Center next weekend.

Hailed as one of the fastest rising young comedy stars on the circuit, Rodriguez is a favorite at comedy clubs all along the West Coast, including locally at Tommy T's. He has also performed in filmed showcases such as Shaq's "All Star Comedy Jam," "Laughs" on FOX, and Comedy Central's "Hart of the City."

Rodriguez's humor is aimed at all audiences, and the performance is set to take place 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 21.

Opening for Rodriguez is Anthony K, a stand-up comic from Modesto. A finalist at the Big Sky Comedy Festival, Anthony K's performance finds the humor in life's annoyances and truths.

Reserved seating tickets are $10-$20. Tickets are available online at, by calling 931-4848, or at the center's box office, 444 Railroad Avenue.
