She applied the same learning techniques she had acquired as a dancer to comedy, spending hours studying recordings by Jack Benny and Woody Allen and analyzing comedy construction.

Raul Sanchez

A former drug addict, Pentecostal Christian and U.S. Army infantryman (not in that order), Raul Sanchez was the winner of the 2012 Funniest In South Texas competition and the winner of the 2013 Funniest Comic In Texas competition. His style of comedy can best be described as Post-Ignorant or "The thinking man's ignorance." Raul shocks audiences all over with his great handle on the English language despite his appearance. His love of the simplest form of comedy and his audible contempt for the human race, including his own existence, are sure to leave audiences laughing in confusion. Highly recommended show...go go!
