Comedy Nights returned to Havana Club on Thursday 8-13-15. The show was coordinated by local favorite comedian Mario Salazar who was also the MC.

The show was opened by famous talented singer and author, Elio (Roy Escobedo). Comediante CISCO, Rick Cano and Dan Defossey were also part of the event. The next one will be in November 2015 and will be announced in this website and in our Facebook Page as well.

Mario

Mario “Superstar” Salazar

It is interesting that although Mario is one of the local “veterans” in the comedy circle, this was the FIRST time that the performed in SPANISH. He told us before the show that he was “nervous” about performing in Spanish but he was as funny and hilarious as during his usual great performances in English.

Rick Cano

Rick Cano

Rick is from the Rio Grande Valley but he is frequently performing in other states.

Dan Deffosey

Dan Defossey

Dan was born in the USA but he lives in Mexico. He told many funny stories of his “gringo” experiences in Mexican territory.

Comediante Cisco

Comediante Cisco

Cisco receives our special thanks for gathering the comedians for this show and also for suggesting that the show be conducted in Spanish. His jokes were outstanding.

Kizomba and Semba Demonstration on Friday 7-31-15

Kizomba is a genre of music and dance originating from Angola. It means “party” in Kimbundu language, which is one of the most widely spoken in that country. Semba is a more traditional fun dance characterized by wide steps and danced in pairs. Kizomba is danced like the more traditional Semba but is slower and more sensual.

Kizomba has only been around since the 1980’s and has been gradually becoming more popular in non African countries, including the USA. Because of its rising popularity, instructors from the local Sabor Vallero dancing team brought  Eric Fitzgerald and Karla Villarreal from Houston. Eric and Karla gave a demonstration at Havana Club on Friday, July 31st. Eric brought his cell phone to the DJ booth and requested to dance with Karla to the rhythm of the song named :”Milongo”. Many dance students observed and got helpful tips from the instructors. This was part of a pre-party for a workshop held at South Padre Island on 8/1/15.

UFC 190: Rousey Reatains World Title

IMG_1386

On Saturday, 8/1/15, undefeated Rousey and Correia clashed in a long anticipated fight. This and other great UFC Fights were shown at Havana Club live from Rio de Janeiro. The fight card included many excellent fights with popular old-timers such as Minotauro Nogueira and Rua. The questions were if Correia was a tough as she said she was and if she would last more than one round, reminiscent of the initial Mike Tyson fights, in a different but similar sport. Rousey took only 34 seconds to knock out Correia, extending her winning streak to 12 straight fights and retaining her world title in the women’s bantamweight division.IMG_1380
