Let's laugh the night away because stand up comedy is back at the Exchange for one-night-only on Friday, April 27th. We are please to host our headliner Sam Tripoli from Comedy Central, The Late Late Show, MTV and more.
Tripoli has said that performing and the desire to make people laugh has been in his blood since age two, and he began doing stand-up comedy in Las Vegas one night on a dare. He was soon performing in casinos as well as hosting his own weekly shows on the strip. His first break came while working the door at The Comedy Store where he was one of only two comedians to do their first set as a paid regular in The Main Room – the other was Roseanne Barr. In 2006 Tripoli was cast as a co-host on the network's Wild World of Spike. Then in 2008 Tripoli was chosen as a finalist in “Who Wants to be Howard Stern" contest, and his demo was played on-air. He has toured as part of The Monsters of Comedy, Rock Stars of Comedy and a USO Tour of Afghanistan organized by Vince Vaughn. Tripoli created The Naughty Show, which is both a live comedy variety show and a weekly podcast on the DEATHSQUAD network. He is also a frequent guest on The Joe Rogan Experience and Ice House Chronicles. In 2012, Tripoli and comedians Ari Shaffir and Jayson Thibault launched Punch-Drunk, a sports radio show, on the Toadhop Network. In 2017, Tripoli released a double comedy album, "The Diabolical".
Hosting the evening will be Ventura's own Jake Gallo, with Mark Muratore and Carlisle Forrester also on the bill. The laughter begins at 9:00, and there is a suggested donation of $20 at the door. Beverages will be available. Reserve your seat here with an additional $1 processing fee.
