Pablo Francisco Headlines Gotham Comedy Club - Gotham Comedy Club
Through January 12, 2019 - New York

January 10th – 12th, Pablo Francisco will rock the house with screams of laughter at Gotham Comedy Club in New York, NY. Pablo is one of the most popular touring comedians worldwide. He has earned a reputation for his unique talent to weave together his one of a kind arsenal of off the wall characters and spot-on impressions. Francisco draws his audience into his vivid imagination and takes them on a wild ride as they experience his spontaneous outbursts, clever insights and some of the funniest rapid fire comedy, ever unleashed. Fans across America will have an opportunity to catch a glimpse of Pablo’s hilarious new material as he prepares to shoot a new one-hour comedy special entitled “Here We Go Again.” The new special will feature some outrageously funny animation segments that only Pablo could create.

Theatre Event called "The Tragedy of the Election of the Citrus King" - Hudson Guild Theater
January 13, 2019 - New York

My short play (15 minutes), "The Tragedy of the Election of the Citrus King" will be performed as part of the New York Winterfest of New Plays. It's not a pure tragedy, nor a comedy. It's a true dialogue, written in Elizabethan-style English. A Citizen expresses fear and frustration at the election and a Trumpist steps up to express his side. Whether that appeals to you or makes you squirm, it is a device to encourage everybody in the audience to simply listen. We want the audience to come away with a sense of hope. It's up for 3 nights at the Hudson Guild Theatre (441 West 26th Street between 9th and 10th Aves.). Here's a link to the festival: Tickets can be purchased at the link below (the ticket includes all plays in that evening).

Doggie Diamonds' No Filter Podcast w/ Beanie Sigel - Highline Ballroom
January 22, 2019 - New York

AMEX Logo Beanie Sigel was born Dwight Grant in Philadelphia on March 6, 1974. Sigel was a name he took from that of a street in his tough south Philadelphia neighborhood; "Beanie" was a nickname his grandmother gave him. Like many other young people in musically rich Philadelphia, Sigel tried out his hip-hop wordsmith skills, appearing on a mixtape assembled by producer DJ Clue and contributing a verse to the Roots' "Adrenaline." In the fall of 1998 he caught the attention of the duo Philly's Most Wanted, later famed for their album Get Down or Lay Down, who were at the time little known beyond Philadelphia. The duo persuaded Sigel to join them at a meeting with the heads of the Roc-a-Fella label, rapper Jay-Z and entrepreneur Damon Dash, who were then well on their way to becoming the most consistent hit makers in hip-hop music. At the meeting, Sigel impressed both Jay-Z and Dash with his rhymes. He wasn't a virtuoso poet, but his material was straightforward and vivid, filled with detail about the violent life on Philadelphia's streets. A well respected contributing media personality, Doggie Diamonds has been at the forefront of many renowned one on one's with a multitude ... (read more)
