Episode 124: Catching Up With Aruba Ray Ellin
Joining us today is Ray Ellin from Aruba Ray's Comedy, and he's here to give us a run-through of the terrific lineup of Aruba Comedy happening down in the island for the rest of this month and the beginning of February.
On this most recent trip to the island I ran into Ray at the Holiday Inn which is the new venue for Aruba Ray's Comedy and it is fantastic. Not only is the space larger than past Aruba Ray Comedy venues, but the centralized location of the Holiday Inn cannot be beat. Also, there is a new piano bar across the hall from the comedy show called the Palicoco which is a lot of fun.
Ray and I talk about a lot on the show such as, obviously the Aruba Comedy shows, Ray's availability and plans for future schedules, as "This Week at the Comedy Cellar", which is the television show he produces which airs on Comedy Central. We talk a bit about the the behind the scenes and his experience with working with the fantastic team behind it.
