Temecula has become a virtual mecca of dining, shopping and nightlife. But despite the fact that Temecula has become an all-inclusive consumer playground, with little need to ever travel North to Riverside or South to San Diego –a happy phenomenon of the past maybe 5 or 6 years – there are a few little holes in the retail fence. So, although it may be a short, here is the list of a few of the things it would be nice to see one day pop up within the Temecula city limits.
When I think about Temecula, what comes to mind is a community full of small town charm but with all the amenities and advantages of a much bigger city. However, when your entire life is contained within just over 30 square miles, you find yourself taking the same streets and seeing the same things day in and day out and, to me, that’s necessarily not a bad thing. So, I’ve compiled a list of some of the things you see on the streets of Temecula, pretty much any time you leave the house.
Jeff Capri didn’t really have to think too much when it came to making his career choice. He just decided to join the family business. A stand-up veteran, Capri has performed at venues all over the world; and at a few places that can’t really be called “venues.”
Comedian Vince Morris has an intrapersonal struggle. Regardless of his insecurities, Morris has never doubted his choice of profession. Morris seems to be doing alright for himself, having not only headlined at comedy clubs all over the country but he can also boast numerous television appearances including BET’s Comic View, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam and his own half-hour special on Comedy Central.
This column is for all the moms, dads and grandparents who have, or once had, preschool-age children who watched everyone’s favorite primate on television. As I’m sure some of you can relate, I’ve had two children obsessed with the little brown monkey.
Something tells me that I’m about ten years older than the core audience of comedian and actor, Nick Swardson, but he definitely wins the award for the most references to flatulence in one interview. When Swardson comes to the Pechanga Theater this Saturday, the subject matter will be much of the same so his loyal fans should be satisfied with what they see.
Fans of comedian, actor and author Lewis Black may describe him as angry, irritated or even beligerant but, after speaking with him for quite some time about his career, his background and what he finds important, the one word I would use would to describe him would be compassionate.
What choice did I have but to do a little research and actually answer some of the questions that have been not only weighing on my mind, but apparently on yours as well. It is still a work in progress; I’m still waiting to hear from a few city workers on the city streets questions, for example, but I figured I would get you started with what I have discovered thus far.
Comedian Dwayne Perkins believes the truth will set you free. When he comes to the Comedy Club at Pechanga this weekend, Perkins isn’t looking to impress the crowd with his accomplishments. He simply wants to share with them what he finds funny.
Like every community with a storied history such as ours, there exists what I call, for argument’s sake, a few “quirks” that have had me scratching my head for the past few years.
