Host and comedian Jose Roman led a group of showcased comics at the first of a series called "Primo" on the fifth of April at Primo Cigars located inside Southern Eats on Monticello Ave. Notable comedians contributing sets included Mindy Ess and Vino Baker alongside up and comers like Travis Carl, Marshal Mulkey, Rob Barolin, Jon Kranz, Drew Grizzly, Bobby Stephens, Drew Lail, Don Hughes, and others.
"These are showcases, not open mics. After visiting and discovering that this town has plenty full of open mics I wanted to put something together for comics to take their show to the next level, to provide an alternative to other nationally recognized local comedy spots." said Roman, who also runs the Late Late Comedy Show at Toast in Norfolk. His next Primo event will be held at the same venue, on May 3rd. Features that night will include Tim Macklin, Cynthia "Alleykat" Mintier, Jounte Fergurson, and Liz Carnage. The show starts at 7:30 in the evening.
