Centennial Comedy Series offers ‘Moore’ laughs April 24
You gotta like funny … and the three comedians performing at the April 24 show of the Centennial Comedy Series are prepared to bring it!
Steven Juliano Moore, Patrick Candelaria and Marc Ryan will take to the stage Saturday for a night of laughs at the Centennial Banquet and Conference Center on East Fort Bliss. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.
The show is open to the entire El Paso community, so come on out and share the fun. It’s easy to get on post: All you have to do is present your valid drivers license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance. It’s that simple, and with the great acts lined up, well worth the trip!
Moore has spent the last 20 years headlining at comedy clubs in the United States and Canada, performing at casinos from Las Vegas to the Bahamas, and riding the national television circuit. He’s done more than 250 college shoes and toured American military bases in Europe, Korea and Japan. Moore has gone on stage before comics including Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Hicks and Sam Kenison.
Is Moore or the audience having the most fun? It’s hard to tell. He creates an easy rapport with the crowd and makes them feel as good about themselves as they do about him.
Candelaria mixes story-telling with one-liners to form a style everyone can relate to. Known by George Lopez as “pound for pound, one of the funniest comics out there” and by Tommy Chong as a “very funny Mexican,” Candelaria’s career has been a 17-year ride that has taken him over half a million miles around the world, including 12 overseas tours for the U.S. military.
Those tours have put him in front of thousands of service men and women, in locations from Officers’ Clubs in Korea and Japan to a bunker in Iraq. Candelaria has helped ring in a New Year at a NATO base in Sarajevo and celebrated Fourth of July in Tikrit.
Ryan has been working the comedy scene since winning an open-mic contest in 1989. In the years since, he has refined his style and found his comedy voice while doing anything from car commercials to television shopping shows.
Ryan has done everything from writing a sitcom pilot for NBC – a show called “Barely Makin’ It – to appearing on “Star Search.” He has made appearances on Comedy Central’s “Best of the Improv” and “Show Me the Funny,” and is regularly featured on CMT and the “Bob and Tom Show,” and “John Boy and Billy,” syndicated morning shows.
Tickets to the show cost $6 each – or get two for just $10. Tickets may be purchased at the door on the night of the event, or at either ITR location on Fort Bliss: Main ITR in Bldg. 1743 on Victory Avenue, or the ITR kiosk in the new Post Exchange at Freedom Crossing.
