About The Event
HE (Donald McNair) is an American living in Bulgaria. SHE (Julia Tony Stoyanova) is a Bulgarian living in America. He has very serious opinions about the babas, enjoys lutenitsa more than is technically healthy, and is always down to try your uncle's rakia. She develops new English words that only she uses and enjoys trying to unsuccessfully marry different people for a green card every now and then. Who is more culturally shocked? Well, they are here to compare their couple of years of trauma and tell you all about it at the RED ROOM Comedy Club.
Chicago is THE BIGGEST MELTING POT in the USA and here at the RED ROOM Comedy Club, we have the most diverse show you will ever see...ever...for real. You might leave with a new friend or two and definitely a fresh perspective or six. - Fresh Off The Plane! Come and enjoy comedians all the way from Japan, Puerto Rico, India, Mexico, Bulgaria, Dominican Republic and... Michigan.
DONALD MCNAIR is an American comedian who has spent the last 3 years living in Bulgaria.

He can’t wait to see your beautiful faces :D. Donald’s home comedy base is in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. He released his first special “An American Goes Balkan” in September, which has been attended by consistently sold-out audiences. He performs around the country, as well as recently in Romania.

MANNY ACOSTA growing up in Chicago's Humboldt Park found that being funny came naturally to him. Not only was he the class clown, making it even further as he got older, but Manny also became a professional clown alongside his father.
Now, the proudly unique Dominican and Puerto Rican young man is making people laugh in a different way, on a stage sharing his sarcastic wit, edgy observations, and unique views on anything and everything his hyperactive brain can think of! His energy and charm win over crowds as he explains his story of never fitting in because he always knew he was born to stand out. In his first few years as a stand-up comedian, Manny has been fortunate enough to have learned from and performed with incredible veteran comics such as Vince Acevedo, Joey Villagomez, Calvin Evans, Kevin Farley, Alex Ortiz, Josh Blue, Damon Williams, and more! Recently Manny has started performing and bringing laughs to many different venues all over the country. He's performed in schools and comedy clubs like Northeastern Illinois University, the famous Chicago Laugh Factory, Riddles Comedy Club in Alsip, IL, and the LA Comedy Club in Las Vegas as he hopes to bring his interesting brand of comedy to the world.

TITO is best described as being naturally funny. His comedy roots date back to his Mexican and Puerto Rican roots where telling stories and jokes are part of the culture. Although born in Mexico, he was raised in Chicago in Logan Square. In recent years he traveled the world, 17+ countries! His multicultural background and inner-city roots give him a unique perspective on everything from race, politics, and his favorite - sex. He's a Second City alumn, having taken multiple courses over the years, and at one point part of an improv troupe. Although he's only been doing stand-up since 2015, he says he's been a comedian his whole life.
