Having trained at revered New York City comedy venues like the Comedy
Cellar and Upright Citizens Brigade, Gabriela Tijerina has recently been
making waves in San Antonio’s comedy scene. A native of Laredo,
Tijerina has shared the stage with major acts (including Jesse Joyce and
Sam Morril) and this year took home the title of Best Standup Comic in
our annual readers’ poll. Headlining her own show at Laugh Out Loud,
Tijerina brings her sarcasm, self-loathing and Texas charm to local
audiences with support from South Texas up-and-comers Mike Suarez, Aaron
Long, Ryan Shields and Trace Holt. $10, 8pm Wed, Jun. 21, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club, 618 NW Loop 410, (210) 541-8805, lolsanantonio.com.
