Nationally touring comedian Andy Peters, who hails from Monroe, will return home to perform his stand-up act at Monroe County Community College on Saturday, Feb. 1.
The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the college’s La-Z-Boy Center, which is located on the Main Campus, 1555 S. Raisinville Rd., Monroe.
A member of the Monroe High School Class of 2000 -- who now lives in Los Angeles after years as a stand-out in the Seattle comedy scene -- Peters performs his high-energy, off-the-cuff standup act across the U.S. He has a comedy special available on all streaming services and can be seen as Coach Peters on TruTV’s “Those Who Can’t.” Peters’ “Dry Bar Comedy” clips on Facebook Live have reached millions of views.
He is proud to be finally returning home to tell tales of growing up in and out of trouble in Southeast Michigan, traveling the world, getting married and trying to make it in California.
He won the Rocky Mountain Laugh-Off, was a finalist in the Seattle International Comedy Competition and participated in the San Francisco Comedy Competition, D.C. Comedy Fest and Boston Comedy Festival.
