PEACHES RODRIGUEZ , WAS CROWNED SATURDAY AS THE FUNNIEST COMIC IN CONNECTICUT, LAST SATURDAY AT TRINITY ON MAIN IN NEW BRITIAN CT.

WITH FRIDAY NIGHT FOUR WEEK ELIMINATIONS AT SEVERAL CT VENUES PRIOR IT WAS A GRUELING COMPETITION AS SHE COMPETED AGAINST MORE THAN 250 OTHER COMICS FOR THE 1ST PRIZE OF $2000.00 PLUS $1000.00 IN WORK FROM THE TREEHOUSE COMEDY CLUB CHAIN,
BRAD AXELROD PRESIDENT OF THE ORGANIZATION,WHICH SPONSORED THE ENTIRE CONTEST...SAID THIS HAS BEEN ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL EVENTS IN CT COMEDY HISTORY, THE TREEHOUSE IS A CT COMEDY STAPLE, WHO IN THE 80’S AND 90’S WAS HOME TO THE COMEDY BOOM AND WAS HOST TO JERRY SEINFIELD PAUL REISER AND EVERY COMEDY LEGEND OF THAT ERA TO EVER GRACE THE STAGE.
ACCORDING TO AXELROD COMEDY IS JUST BOOMING AGAIN!
HE MAY JUST HAVE A POINT!, OVER 220 PEOPLE WERE IN ATTENDANCE TO SEE THE FINALS. AT TRINITY ON MAIN,
AND EVERY PRELIMINATION VENUE WAS PACKED WITH STANDING ROOM ONLY!
PEACHESTALKS ABOUT HER SET....
AFTER MY TWO FIRST JOKES TANKED, I THOUGHT THATS IT , IT’S OVER FOR ME, RODRIGUEZ SAID,...I’M OUT....AS A MATTER OF FACT I WAS ON MY PHONE BACKSTAGE AS THEY WERE ANNOUNCING THE 5TH PLACE WINNER AND I PUT MY PHONE BACK DOWN AND ROSE TO GET UP....BECAUSE THATS WERE MY HEAD WAS!
I’D HONESTLY DID NOT THINK I HAD A GOOD SET!”
WHEN THEY SAID MY NAME, I WAS FLOORED AND ASTONISHED!
PEACHES ORIGINALLY FROM WINDSOR LOCKS ,CT HAS BEEN DOING COMEDY OVER 8 YEARS AND WAS PREVIOUSLY A DANCER WHEN AN INJURY TO HER KNEE FORCED HER INTO ANOTHER FIELD.
AS A PROFESSIONAL COMIC AND AS A FEMALE SHE SAID THE ROAD HAS BEEN TOUGHER THAN THAT OF A MALE COMIC BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO PROVE YOURSELF RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX...AUDIENCES NEED TO BE MADE COMFORTABLE IMMEDIATLY ,THEY NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU CAN DO THE JOB. WHEN THEY SEE A WOMAN STEP ONSTAGE THERE’S AN ANTICIPATORY MOMENT...THEN, A LITTLE SIGH OF RELIEF.... OH , SHE’S GOT IT. OK,I CAN RELAX ,SHE’S FUNNY.

PEACHES VENTURE ARE NOT JUST IN STAND-UP BUT WEARS MANY HATS IN THE INDUSTRY... SHE ALSO HAS TAKEN TO PRODUCING AND DIRECTING URBAN FILMS, WITH THE CULMINATION OF SEVERAL SHORT AND FULL LENGTH FILMS.
ONE WHICH WAS SHOWN AT THE URBAN-WORLD FILM FESTIVAL CALLED “LATIN HEAVY HITTERS OF COMEDY”...THE FILM IS CURRENTLY BEING LOOKED AT BY NO LESS THAT 2 DISTRIBUTION COMPANIES.
I AM GOING TO GO WITH THE COMPANY THAT GIVES, ME A CAREER NOT JUST A ONE OFF FILM DEAL...THEY ARE COMPETING AND OFFERING ME A 3 PICTURE DISTRIBUTION DEAL...I GUESS MY GOAL IS TO BE THE LATINA WOODY ALLEN....PRODUCE DIRECT AND GENERALLY PUT OUT GREAT AND UPLIFTING PRODUCT.
I ALSO HAVE A SERIES CALLED HITTIN ‘ WHICH PROFILES UP AND COMING PERFORMERS WHO HAVE ATTAINED A CERTIAN UNDERGROUND LEVEL OF FAME BUT NOT HIT THE BIG TIME YET...THE STIPULATION FOR BEING IN THE HITTIN’ SERIES IS THAT EACH ONE OF THE PERFORMERS MUST ALSO DO OUTREACH. MY STANDARDS ARE VERY HIGH BESIDES BEING AN EXTRAORDINARY PERFORMER THOSE PERFORMERS MUST GIVE BACK TO THIER COMMUNITY.
SOME OF PEACHES ONLINE VIDEOS HAVE REACHES OVER 18 THOUSAND HITS ON YOU-TUBE.
THE SYSTEM FOR ENTERTAINMENT IS CHANGING VERY FAST AND MOST PERFORMERS ARE NOT KEEPING UP. FOR INSTANCE, THE CONCEPT OF DOING STAND-UP IN THE CITY CLUBS, THEN SOMEONE SEES YOU, AND BRINGS YOU TO HBO THEN GIVES YOU A NETWORK SERIES DOESN’T EXIST ANYMORE.
I KNOW COMICS WHO ARE SPINNING THIER WHEELS IN THE CITY COMEDY CLUBS,BASICALLY DOING LATE NIGHTS FOR $25.00 SO THAT THEY CAN GET DISCOVERED....THAT OLD SYSTEM IS GONE.....THE NEW CURRENCY IS HITS ON YOUTUBE OR TRAFFIC TO YOUR WEBSITE.
CASE IN POINT... DANE COOK.
WORD HAS IT THAT HE WAS IN THE OFFICES AT A MEETING WITH AN HBO EXEC WHO DIDNT BELIEVE THAT DANE HAD THE NUMBERS TO SUSTAIN AN HBO SPECIAL...SO HE SAYS YEAH? JUST LET ME LOG ON TO YOUR COMPUTER AND GO TO MY HOME SITE.........5 MINS LATER BETWEEN THE EMAILS AND INTSANT MAIL HBO’S COMPUTER SYSTEM CRASHED.

I FEEL VERY EXCITED THAT THE INDUSTRY HAS CHANGED, AND THE CONTROL OF CONTENT IS MORE IN THE HANDS OF EVERYDAY PEOPLE LIKE ME.
IT GIVE US A CHANCE WHERE NONE EXISTED PRIOR TO THIS.
USED TO BE THAT ONLY THE MEGA MEDIA GIANTS COULD DO A MOVIE.

IT’S BECOME MORE USER GENERATED ENTERTAINMENT.
DON’T GET ME WRONG PEACHES SAYS, I AM NOT A BIG FAN OF THESE REALITY SHOWS....BUT OTHER DEVELOPMENTS WITHIN THE INDUSTRY ARE GREAT
I LIKE THAT THERE IS SUPPORT FOR SMALLER MADE INDY FILMS AND THE NEED FOR AUDIENCES TO SUPPORT THE LITTLE GUY/ GIRL, LIKE ME.

PEACHES WILL CONTINUE TO DO HER FILMS AND PERFORM IN BOTH LARGE AND SMALLER VENUES....SHE ALSO DOES CORPORATE AND LECTURE SPEAKING EVENTS FOR COLLEGES AND ORGANIZATIONS.
SHE’S DONE COMEDY SPEAKING AT PRINCETON, FORDHAM U. TEXAS AT AUSTIN. SHE’S EVEN DONE THE RIVIERA HOTEL AND CASIN TWICE IN LAS VEGAS. AND HOPES TO RETURN WITH HER WHOLE SHOW COMEPLETE WITH BACK UP DANCERS.
PEACHES HAS GONE TO THE MIDDLE EAST FOR THE USO TO SUPPORT THE TROOPS.
HER HOME WEBSITE IS WWW.GOPEACHES.COM.
