MERCED — The Merced Theatre is the place to be for jokes Saturday night, as the Comedy Jam featuring comedians Jeff Garcia, Jerry Garcia and Phillip Medina rolls into town.
According to his biography from Comedy Central, by the time he was 16, Jeff Garcia landed his first television spot on HBO's Loco Slam. Since then, he's made over 12 television appearances, including NBC's "Friday Night Videos," "Vibe with Sinbad," and Galavision's "Funny is Funny" showcasing his comedy talent.
Budd Friedman, owner of The Improv, was instrumental in allowing Garcia the opportunity to hone his comedy at his clubs, including his venue in Las Vegas at the Sands Hotel and Casino. Garcia tours across the country at comedy clubs, colleges, and most recently the Latino Laugh Festival held in San Antonio, Texas, according to his Comedy Central biography.
Tickets to the event are $20-25 and can be purchased online at www.mercedtheatre.org or by calling the box office at (209) 381-0500. The box office will be open 1-5 p.m. today and Saturday.
