The Jerry Garcia we all know was the psychedelic Dead Head best known for taking the stage and entertaining huge crowds of stoners. But this, for obvious reasons, isn't him. Meet Jerry Garcia the comedian, a similar stage entertainer who also pleases droves of inebriated and otherwise buzzed people for money. But instead of serving up tasty musical jams, this Garcia serves up one-liners and side-splitters to the delight of half-drunk comedy junkies everywhere. And the latter Garcia is swiftly becoming a formidable force in the comedy world as one of the fastest-rising young Latino comics on the scene today. His discussions on life, love and just plain livin’ keep audiences coming back (and buying tickets) for more. Witness the new-age Jerry, and his pal Jeff Garcia, at the “F It I’m Down Show” at the Brea Improv. Just don’t show up on acid.
