EL CENTRO — The Youth for Christ group of the Imperial Valley hosted a night of comedy at Christ Community Church May 31 to support their organization and the services they bring to the youth of surrounding communities.
YFC brought out Kerri Pomarolli who has appeared in over 75 stage productions and recurring roles on several TV shows as well as her own TV web series, “Momland.” She has also toured with comedians like Jim Carrey and Carol Channing and has appeared 29 times on the Tonight Show as well as Good Morning America, Showbiz Tonight, CNN, Nick at Nite, Lifetime TV, and the Oxygen Channel.
Also performing was Dustin Nickerson, who just returned from the Human Being Tour. Nickerson has also been seen on “Laughs” on Fox, the PBS Comedy Hour, Hulu, and can regularly be heard on Sirius Radio XM, Rooftop Comedy, and the Darren Streblow Show.
“This was a great show that brought out awesome talents that had me and [my] family in non-stop laughter with their funny twists on everyday life,” said attendee Michael Mendoza.
