El Paso Comedians Get Laughs at Historic House of Blues
Saturday, February 25th - El Paso-based stand-up comics Nico Adjemian and Julian Luera were fortunate enough to open the show for touring veteran and comedy legend Willie Barcena, at the historic House of Blues in downtown Houston, Texas.
These local comics were incredibly lucky to perform with some of the heaviest hitters in stand-up comedy right now.
Starting off the night as the host was the hilarious Enrique Chacon, from Houston, TX.
Then El Pasoans, Nico Adjemian, and Julian Luera performed AND got laughs for 10 minutes each!
Featuring was Austin-based comic and certified killer DeeJay Vasquez.
And of course, headlining was the man himself, Willie Barcena.
A 20-year comedy veteran, he has appeared on many tv shows including: “Moesha,” “And the Wayans brothers...”
"His one-hour comedy central special received rave reviews, and he followed that up with a showtime special, and his latest special, now on Netflix, shows willie is just getting better.”
One of the openers, local El Paso stand-up comedian, Nico Adjemian described his experience thusly.
"It was, in all seriousness, one of the most incredible nights of my life.
It felt like a dream come true, to open for one of the best living comics, to be performing at one of the greatest venues to ever exist;
And, it felt amazing to go back to a city where I had something to prove, and hopefully proved it.
I dropped out of college in Houston, and I needed to show myself, and prove to myself, that it was the best decision I ever made.
And that Houston audience really helped confirm it."
Also performing was El Paso stand-up comic, winner of 2019's El Paso's Funniest award, and regular host at the El Paso Comic Strip, Julian Luera who said,
"That night, I lost my virginity, bro."
In any event, I'm sure it's a night that neither of them will ever forget.
