Disclaimer Underground Comedy presents comedian Carlos Valencia at the Dirty South Lounge tomorrow night. Show starts at 9:00 p.m and is absolutely free!   About Valencia: Carlos Valencia’s first time on stage was at a competition where the prize was a week-long booking on a cruise ship. He lost categorically and he is still yet to set foot on a cruise ship, but since then Valencia has performed in 30+ states from Washington to Florida in comedy clubs, colleges, casinos, taverns, prisons, military bases, watering holes, speakeasys, roadhouses, bars (both In and On), punk rock clubs, country dance halls, metalhead dives, hip-hop joints, diners, bowling centers, back alleys, churches, bathhouses, and just about every nightmarish scenario a comedy booker can concoct. Carlos Valencia has also performed with some of the biggest names in comedy, and on some of the most prestigious comedy festivals in the country.   Needless to say, Carlos drinks quite a bit. Based out of Atlanta, GA for the past few years, Carlos has been traveling around the United States on his “Countdown to Suicide” Comedy Tour, scheduled to end when the Prozac runs out, or his liver gives in.
