LEWISTON, Idaho – Military veteran and comedian Jose Sarduy will perform his comedy routine on Wednesday, March 6, at 8 p.m. at the Lewis-Clark State College Silverthorne Theatre. His performance is free and open to the public.
Sarduy uses his life experiences in his material. He was born in Cuba and came to the United States at a young age because his father was deported after being a political prisoner. He said growing up with a hard-working and quirky Cuban family provided plenty of funny moments.
Following high school, Sarduy was accepted into the Air Force Academy and later became an officer and a pilot. He served in Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. One week a month he returns to a base camp in Texas to teach the basics in aviation.
His comedy career started out in New York, and he now travels around the world to perform, making serious topics such as deportation and life-threatening moments in the military comical. He believes ”if you can’t laugh at a hard time in your life, you ain’t over it yet.”
He has been on CNN, CBS, Fox and the Lifetime Network, including serving as host and performer on Fox’s “Laughs” during 2015-16. He also has appeared on NBC’s “Last Call With Carson Daly.”
Sarduy’s performance at LCSC is sponsored by the Warrior Entertainment Board. For more information about this event email [email protected] or call 208-792-2069.
