Actor and Comedian Felipe Esparza Adds Second Show at the Tobin Center on Saturday Due to Popularity


  • Twitter / TobinCenterSA
Mexican American stand-up Felipe Esparza has added a second show on Saturday at the Tobin Center. The comedian is hitting up San Antonio on his Bad Hambre Tour, which comes hot on the heels of his latest HBO special, Translate This.

Esparza lays it all on the stage in his stand-up, from family squabbles to his stint in rehab. Although he started making appearances in films way back in 2003, his career didn't hit its stride until his 2012 stand-up special They're Not Gonna Laugh at You. Now, Esparza has cropped up on Superstore, The Eric Andre Show and Laugh Factory, and has produced more than 227 episodes of his podcast What's Up Fool? on the All Things Comedy Network.

San Antonians have two chances to see Esparza on Saturday, but both shows are running low on tickets, so hardcore fans will want to grab their seats while they're still available.

$38.50-$63.50, 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday, October 26, H-E-B Performance Hall, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Cir., (210) 223-8624,
