[We’re super excited because tonight is the 2-Year Anniversary of our monthly stand up comedy showcase! And now, some words from Casa De Ha-Ha host/founder Daniel Reskin. -Lo]
It’s been 2 years since the first CASA DE HA-HA at Sweat Records. Back then the Miami scene didn’t have as many opportunities for stage time, so I started Casa as an outlet for comics to get time without all the rigmarole we traditionally go through to get booked. I made it a showcase where I could proudly display all the talented Miami comics I was collecting/meeting, and let them stretch their legs with no pressure (except the normal insurmountable pressure of doing stand up).
Performing in the coolest indie record store in Miami/earth really doesn’t hurt, in fact I’ll go as far as to say it’s a GOOD thing. Every month is a fresh lineup. There’s always local favorites, comics from the northern FL scenes, the occasional standup virgin, and even headliners drop in for surprise sets… three of them are coming for tonight, FL bigwigs Forrest Shaw, Oni Perez, and the effervescent Adrian Mesa (one of our house comics – on tap every month).
So in case you haven’t figured it out yet, It’s going to be a shit-kicker and you should go. Thanks to everybody who has attended a Casa, we need you and your succulent laughs to fuel our maddening hunger. And future thanks the people who haven’t been but want to, why not?
