The one-night-only “Boys will be Boys Stand-up Comedy” event will be coming to The Guild Cinema later this month.
The March 15, 18 and over show will feature six local comedians including former General Studies major and event coordinator Matt Peterson, who said he began holding local comedy events after Laffs Comedy Club closed in 2008.
“We hear people tell us that they don’t hear too often about local comedy events, and comments like these are what drives us to make our own open-mic and stand-up shows almost every day of the week throughout Albuquerque,” he said.
Peterson was a contestant on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2007, and has been a part of the local comedy scene for more than a decade. The rest of the lineup includes comedian and author Mike Long, known for his dark sense of humor; comedian and former Laffs veteran John Cuellar; sharp-witted James Marrow; Young, Dumb and Full of Comedy member Joe Quesada and “Last Comic Standing” contestant and Terrene Hookah Lounge Comedy Contest host Rusty Rutherford.
The group draws from comic legends Louis C.K. and Doug Stanhope as well at their personal experiences. Pre-sale tickets can be purchased at Mean Bao Asian Bakery at 3409 Central SE, from 10am-7pm, Tuesday- Sunday, or at the Guild Cinema on the day of the show for $10 each).

“This show is going to be nonstop laughs, and poop your pants funny,” Long said.
