Hilarious comic René Vaca makes his NJPAC debut! The 28-year-old recently stole the show at the 2024 Netflix Is A Joke Festival, where he was one of a handful of rising stars chosen to perform an “Introducing…” set. Before that, he won the top prize at the 16th annual StandUp NBC competition. René kills at sold-out clubs and theaters across the country with darkly funny jokes about his chaotic childhood, his Mexican family and his romantic relationships. You’ll love his brutal honesty and brilliant perspective on Latino culture.
