Rodriques  Corey 7Corey Rodrigues will be performing at Dick Doherty's Beantown Comedy Den along with John Romanoff and Matt D. in Boston on Friday, August 9th and Saturday, August 10th. 

Corey Rodrigues has been touring for years, with much of his comedy coming from his personal life and those around him. He was the winner of the Catch a New Rising Star comedy competition, became semi-finalist in the New York Comedy Contest & Boston Comedy Festival and was a recent winner of New England's Funniest Comic. 

"Growing up in Milton - a small suburb in Massachusetts - and spending a lot of time in the city at his family's barbershop businesses allowed Corey to bring a diverse voice to the stage. Since a very early age he's had the ability to impersonate many different voices. He often left family members in tears at gatherings. It wasn't rare for him to startle his childhood classmates by imitating a teacher or principal's voice in the hallways. Corey made a quick transition from class clown to professional headliner out his no holds barred training provided by Bostonís Improv Asylum. From there he became a part of his own short form improv troupe, Flaming Awesome. Referred to as funny, endearing, edgy, quick and exceptionally likable when he is on the stage, Corey owns the crowd." 

Tickets are available through the Beantown Comedy website.
