This Tuesday (Nov 15th) comedy comes to the Chengdu Bookworm once again, with international headliner Vlad Caamano kicking off his China tour in Chengdu. this should be a good one…….
With the name “Vladimir,” few people expect a Dominican from The Bronx to take the stage. His comedic style is the fruit of an immigrant Dominican family living in the cultural mecca that is New York City and is described as an elegant combination of urban grit and intellect. He began polishing his wit in the concrete jungles of The Bronx and Washington Heights and after graduating from Wesleyan University launched into Standup Comedy.
Vlad has quickly become a staple of the New York Comedy scene performing at The Stand, Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Dangerfield’s and the Comic Strip Live. He has been featured on Gotham Comedy Live on AXS.TV and Adam Devine’s House Party for Comedy Central.December 7, 2016 at 7:54 pm #51821
