Saturday Night Live cast member Melissa Villaseñor is celebrating New Year’s Eve in San Antonio with a one-night-only tour stop at the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club.

Villaseñor, who is the first-ever Latina comedian hired on the show, joined the SNL cast in 2016. Since making her debut, she has impersonated everyone from Sarah Silverman to Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Jennifer Lopez, the latter with whom she teamed up earlier this month for a sketch where they play a pair of hoop-earring saleswomen. (“Give your ear a promise ring, and that promise is — this is gonna get ripped out by a baby.”)

Prior to SNL, Villaseñor made it to the semifinals of the sixth season of America’s Got Talent. Along with her standup comedy performances this year, Villaseñor was a guest of Jerry Seinfeld on Netflix’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. She also had a small voice role during the end credits of Toy Story 4 as Knifey, another handmade toy Bonnie creates at school that, like Tony Hale’s Forky, is initially confused by her sentience.

$35, Tuesday, Dec. 31, 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club, 618 NW Loop 410, (866) 468-3399,
