Comedy Central comes to CSU-Pueblo

Dillon Garcia, Comedy Central’s youngest comedian, visited the campus on this past Wednesday for a night of comedy.

Garcia joked about Pueblo, relationships, gangs, Caucasians, the campus, and his belly, but the obvious theme to Garcia’s set of jokes was the awkward style of Latinos. Garcia’s jokes about Latinos in California brought up similarities to some things you would see in Pueblo.

The opening act for Garcia, was Manny Crespin, mass communications major at CSU-Pueblo. He took the stage, expressed his love for role-playing and joked about Mexicans, which set the tone for the jokes Garcia had ready for the crowd.

Garcia made fun of a crowd of people that showed up late and sat in the back row of Hoag Hall. The kids all walked in and were laughing, even though; they had not heard any of Garcia’s jokes.

“Look at them, that must have been one, long blunt,” said Garcia. Then Garcia pulled down his hat and pretended to be high.

Garcia referred to Marijuana and this wasn’t a new topic to CSU-Pueblo. CSU-Pueblo’s most popular drug is Marijuana and the crowd reacted a lot more to this portion of Garcia’s jokes. Many of his references were to the way people were sitting in the crowd and how the people responded to his questions.

Garcia brought up some jokes about how some Mexicans don’t show support for other Mexican’s success. He claimed that someone’s neighbor could get cable installed in their house and the family next door to them would complain about how they are instantly “too good” for everyone else.

People were laughing and being laughed at. Garcia expressed his feelings about how some of the youth wear glasses with no lenses, and they assume the glasses help them get with girls.

“You know what I don’t get? These so called hipsters who wear glasses with no lenses; you look stupid!” Garcia said. “And look, all of you are taking off your glasses now.”

One of the students in the crowd made a rebuttal to Garcia and he responded with a comeback. The crowd immediately broke out in laughter.

“I’m a professional, homie, you don’t want to do this,” Garcia said.

Garcia continued with his set, as the crowd continued to laugh. Once the crowd finally calmed down, Garcia moved on to some jokes about his girlfriend.

Garcia joked about how his girlfriend tries to get him to wear costumes that make him look weak, while she wears costumes that make her look sexy. He mentioned that many girls do this to their significant others and that people in the audience probably could relate to him.

“Hey ladies, us men are taking a stance this year,” Garcia said. “I’m not dressing up like a blueberry again.”

Garcia also brought up “Twilight” and how women base their expectations for men from the mythical creatures in this movie.

“No, I can’t run across a parking lot and stop a car from hitting you,” Garcia said. “He was running 800 mph, so be happy that I even walked over here to have this conversation with you.”

    99 percent of smartasses are usually wrong. Look at the spelling again. These are students trying to provide a service to the school. No need for someone like you to be disrespectful.
