THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Live Standup Comedy on the Hill returns Saturday, June 9 at 8:00 pm at the Hillcrest Center for the Arts, 403 W. Hillcrest Dr, across from The Oaks Mall. June’s lineup includes Carlos Oscar and Al Ducharme. The Center teams up with professional local comedian Jason Love to produce a top-tier show with a new lineup each month. Now performing to sold-out audiences, this experience in comedy entertainment brings some of Hollywood’s funniest headliners to Thousand Oaks every month and tickets are now available three months in advance. All shows are 8:00 pm with doors opening at 7:30. The hour and a half show is for eighteen years and up only, and beer and wine may be purchased with valid ID.
Carlos Oscar has been described as a lean, clean joke machine. After serving 4 years in U.S. Air Force, he moved to Los Angeles to embark on a career in the entertainment industry. While studying acting at UCLA, he bumped into comedy. “I was doing a comedic scene in class at UCLA. The immediate laughter response from the audience sparked me into pursuing stand-up comedy.” Carlos has performed on The Tonight Show, ABC’s The View and numerous Comedy Central appearances, but he’s making them laugh on land and at sea. Al Ducharme started doing stand-up comedy in high school and continued through college. For the last 18 years he has performed on cruise ships and in many of the best clubs internationally. He’s been seen on America’s Got Talent, Late Night and the Last Comic Standing. His first Comedy DVD, “Spineless and Loving It,” was produced by National Lampoon and his popular CD, Manchild is available on iTunes.
This spring, audience member Gary Brown said, “It’s raining. And yet a full house. A sellout for sure! I was surprised, but very happy to see it. All four comedians… We loved them!” He added, “I’ve now been about ten times and will bring a whole lot of new folks back next month. They’ll learn to get there earlier too. The good seats go fast.”
Producer and host Jason Love has appeared on HBO, Comedy Central, America’s Got Talent, and over 20 national broadcasts. He has performed overseas for the troops and on the seas for cruise lines, and was a finalist at the Cabo Comedy Festival. Jason’s non-profit, Love & Laughter, brings free shows to cancer support communities and others in need.
