This blog series features interviews taking place at the Dallas Comedy House (DCH) open mic with me and some of the funniest stand-up comedians in the area, most of whom just happen to be my best friends! Read to learn about your favorite local funny people and about the curious emotional makeup of people who like to go onstage alone every night to get laughed at. Angel Rosales: Serious Comic
Angel Rosales is one of the funniest people in Dallas. His Twitter, @angelcomedian, is evidence of his dark, biting sense of humor and aptitude for writing terse, brilliant one-liners. But Angel doesn't coast on his natural hilarity - he works incredibly hard to write the strongest material he can and deliver his best performance even at the most sparsely attended open mics. His commitment to making excellent work hasn't gone unnoticed. He consistently works as a host for the Hyena's night clubs in Dallas and Fort Worth. A naturally charismatic guy and a dedicated craftsmen, Angel is the kind of guy who makes me want to be a better comic. I sat down with him and we had a beer and talked shop, and fellow worker bee Sean Alexander of Creww Media directed and produced.
