Comedy Night Jan 2020

COMEDY NIGHT 2020 at Franchescos!

Doors open at 8:30 pm show starts at 9pm


Born and raised in Chicago's Humboldt Park, Manny Acosta is a proudly unique Dominican and Puerto Rican young man. Growing up, he found being funny came natural to him, always being crowned class clown. Taking it even further as he got older, Manny became a professional clown alongside his father. Now Manny is making people laugh in a different way, on a stage sharing his sarcastic wit, edgy observations and unique views on anything and everything his hyperactive brain can think of! His energy and charm win over crowds as he explains his story of never fitting in because he always knew he was born to stand out.
