About Rodger: stand-up/comic writer/2-time all american gangsta Rodger Lizaola has been delighting for the years with his razor sharp wit, powerful stage presence, and his uncanny ability to say out loud what you are thinking! Weaving his ability to ad-lib and improv with tales from his childhood, life, loves, and the pursuit of that almighty dollar! This comic tries to entertain and leave the audience with a positive message. He breaks down barriers and takes no prisoners, as his in your face style will have you rolling with laughter, and has you begging for more! Growing up on the mean streets of Gilroy, CA he always had the knack to make his friends and those around him laugh but to get on "stage" was terrifying. Stage fright aside the opportunity didn't present itself until February 2003 when he moved to the state of Washington specifically the city of Seattle at the world famous Comedy underground at their open mike night. Those first 3 mins were absolutely terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. All tough the first years were hard and humbling he stuck with it and has now become one of the youngest headliner in the Northwest. Rodger has opened up for such acts as comedy legend David Brenner, Eddie Brill, Louis CK, Tom Cotter, Kyle Cease, Doug Benson, Ty Barnett, and Alonzo Bodden. And such Musical acts as The Black Eyed Peas, Pussycat Dolls, Baby Bash, Rhianna, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Good Charlotte, and The Backstreet Boys!!! He has performed at some of the finest venues such as Punch line, Improv, Cobbs Comedy Club, Comedyundergorund, The historic Johnny Carson Theater in Norfolk NE, Paramount and Moore Theaters In Seattle WA. As well as some dudes basement at a party (there was free beer) He was the recent champion of the Renton comedy contest where he had to beat 8 competitors to win 100$, I love Renton T-shirt, and the admiration of about 47 people, Also was a recent invitee and semi finalist of the great American comedy festival, and the Las Vegas Comedy Festival. As well as performing for the Seattle Mariners at their 2008 spring training. So don't miss this rising star, you won't be disappointed!!!
