Live From New York, It’s Scotty Watson!
By April Gaydos
Comedian and actor Scotty Watson is coming all the way from New York City to teach at the San Miguel Writers’ Conference. While he’s in town, he’ll be performing his hilarious Tour de Farce comedy show at Los Milagros Restaurante.
Comedy show: Tour de Farce w/Scotty Watson. Mon, Feb 20, 6:30pm. Restaurant Los Milagros, Reloj 17. 120 Pesos. Tickets @ Hotel Real de Minas
The event is organized by the San Miguel Writers’ Conference to raise funds for the Wayne Greenhaw Memorial Fund, which provides computers for teen writers in the San Miguel area.
“Comedy nights are not a customary entertainment offering in San Miguel,” said Melissa Hirsch, one of the conference executive committee members. “We thought this was a great opportunity to bring people together for a night of fun and lots of laughs.”
An alumnus of the famous The Second City, Scotty’s comedy is guaranteed to generate laughs and even guffaws. The performance will be loaded with wild and wacky characters, improvisation, sketch comedy, stand up, and pantomime – all rolled into one fantastic show.
Aside from his experience as a writer and performer with The Second City, Scotty has performed on Comedy Central and has vast experience writing for and performing in television and radio commercials in the US. He also teaches sketch writing and was voted one of the top 10 improv instructors in North America.
If you like stand-up, sketch comedy, and improvisation, you won’t want to miss the show. Doors open at 6:30pm for dinner and drinks (please support our host sponsor Los Milagros!); the show begins at 7:30pm. Tickets may be purchased at the Conference Registration Desk at the Real de Minas Hotel from 8am-6pm, February 16-19, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
