COMEDY: Vinnie Montez with Mike Hammock
October 8, 2021 @ 7:30 pm$21 – $25
About this event
Colorado native and 20 year police veteran Vinnie Montez takes to the SteamPlant Theater stage with his unique brand of humor that stems from his experiences as a cop and his Mexican heritage. Vinnie says he got into comedy as a means of addressing the stress and trauma of dealing with horrible situations. In 2018 Vinnie was inducted as an official member of Humanizing the Badge (HTB), an organization on a mission to help forge stronger relationships between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve.
Also in the bill is comedian Mike Hammock. This comic out of Denver, Colorado combines edgy humor with a good natured broad appeal that’s earned him Colorado’s top spot as Comedy Works’ 2018 New Faces Contest Winner.
This show is co-sponsored by Heart of the Rockies Radio and the SteamPlant Event Center. All proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Salida Police Department’s Canine Unit.
Doors to the theater will open at 7:00PM, show begins at 7:30PM
Tickets are $21.00 in advance available online here and $25.00 at the door. Current public health orders at the time of the show will be followed at the venue.
