(NEWARK, NJ) -- New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents Carlos Ballarta, star comedian from Mexico who has taken the stand-up world by storm with his dark humor will perform in Spanish on Saturday, January 13, 2024 at 7:00pm. Ballarta has been featured on Comedy Central, and recently released his Netflix special titled, Furia Ñera.
He’s hilarious. He’s edgy. And he rocks a pair of giant sunglasses like nobody else. At the age of 32, he already has three full-length Netflix specials (El Amor es de Putos, Furia Ñera, Falso Profeta) and a new YouTube special, Rebelde Comodino. In 2023, Carlos became the first headliner to perform in Spanish in the 41-year history of the famous Just For Laughs comedy festival. You’ll laugh all night with his sharp takes on culture, religion, politics, family and the weirdness of everyday life.
