Chicago comedian, Joey Villagomez headlines two stand-up comedy shows in the Comedians You Should Know showroom at Timothy O'Toole's Pub (622 N. Fairbanks Ct.) on Wednesday, February 1st, 2017 at 7 PM (doors at 6) and 9:30 PM (doors at 9.)

This will be the only chance to see Joey record his debut album, Doing Mexican Through a White Zone. Among many topics, Joey will give his funny views of growing up a not-so-Mexican looking, Mexican-American kid in a large, segregated city like Chicago, as well as his experiences of being married and raising two daughters at an age when he was still young and dumb.

The night will be produced by Comedians You Should Know, a stand-up comedy collective made up of some of the funniest comedians in Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City. Both shows will be hosted by Marty DeRosa and will feature Jim Flannigan, both Chicago comedians.

Joey Villagomez, born and raised on Chicago's South Side, has been performing stand-up comedy for over ten years and has risen fast! In September 2010, he was featured in HBO Latino specials Habla and Habla Mas en Chicago. He was also featured on Paul Rodriguez's 2013 Latin Kings of Comedy Tour.

Joey has performed for national events including the U.S. Census Bureau and received recognition from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for his support and participation in the 2012 Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration.  He has shared the stage with comedy stars such as Hannibal Buress, Drew Carey, T.J. Miller, and 2010 Last Comic Standing winner, Felipe Esparza.  

Joey conveys the humor in both the bizarre and the ordinary with universal appeal.  He shares stories on everything from relationships and financial problems, to raising children at a young age. His stories of growing up in a not-so typical Mexican household are humorous and gut busting!  Inspired by many comedy legends like George Carlin, Martin Lawrence, Eddie Murphy, and Richard Pryor, Joey says there's nothing in the world he'd rather be doing than making people laugh!

Comedians You Should Know is a stand-up comedy collective made up of some of Chicago's and Los Angeles' funniest comedians. Their self-titled album was released in 2011 and debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy chart.

Since its inception in 2008, CYSK has produced a weekly show in Chicago that has received praise from stand-up comedy fans and fellow stand-up comedians across the country for its commitment to showcasing the best Chicago stand-up comedians and visiting guests. CYSK has gotten critical-acclaim from several media outlets, most notably The Onion A.V. Club who said about CYSK: "The genuine quality of talent on display is unrivaled in Chicago."
