About the event

At just the young age of 21, Jayson Acevedo performed in six Englishspeaking stand up comedy showcases in Paris, France as part of his affectionately dubbed "Latino In Paris" Comedy Tour. That same year in August, Acevedo received the opportunity of a lifetime by being invited to perform at the world's largest arts festival, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland. 

Now 26, Acevedo has yet to clean his room. Acevedo continues to perform regularly throughout the city of Chicago at notable venues such as Zanies, Second City, Laugh Factory, The Comedy Bar, The Revival, House of Blues, UP, & his nephews house along with many other comedy/variety showcases & comedy clubs in Chicago & beyond. In addition, he has also opened & shared the stage with notable comics such as... Tim Meadows (Saturday Night Live) Jeff Ross (Comedy Central Roasts, Bumping Mics) Hari Kondabolu (NPR/Totally Biased w/ W. Kamau Bell) George Perez (Joe Rogan Experience, Showtime) Ian Edwards (Comedy Central "The New Negroes") Steve Rannazzisi (FX's The League) Reno Collier (Blue Collar Comedy Tour) John Roy (Conan).

Acevedo finally filmed his very first unique comedy special "Lonely Wit" in 2018 in front of an oversold hometown crowd & self released the hour-long improvised musical stand up comedy experience on his very own website, jaysonavocado dot com Acevedo was also chosen as a featured performer for the 2017 & 2018 NBCUniversal BreakOut Comedy Festival along with being chosen among 200 auditionees as a 2017 NBCUniversal/Second City Bob Curry Fellow, which is a unique fellowship that boasts a rigorous master program for serious minded talent seeking a career in sketch comedy & is only awarded to exceptional talent selected by audition & adjudicated by Second City directors & producers. This led to being cast in a 10-week sold out run of Second City's Diversity & Inclusion Show "Urban Twist" Acevedo's comedy has proven to translate well around the world, having told jokes in 4 different countries (France, Scotland, Colombia, & Mexico). Acevedo was recently chosen to proudly represent the city of Chicago in Mexico City as part of the 2019 Year of Chicago Theatre by "Choose Chicago," the official destination marketing organization for the city in direct partnership with the legendary Second City. Today, Acevedo can be heard claiming he's better at being Adele than Adele.
