New Shows: Ramon Rivas, DL Hughley extras


We have another DCI debut on the schedule. Ramon Rivas will be in our lounge on 4/20 and 4/21. Should be a lot of fun ... and let's just say his sensibility is suited to that particular weekend. Video of Ramon is below. You can also now get tickets for two added shows with D.L. Hughley, on May 3 and May 6. All the original shows we posted for D.L. are sold out so these might go quickly.
