Willie Barcena’s act is rich with stories about his humble beginnings in East LA., his Latino heritage, and his blue-collar background. His past jobs include security guard, plumber, roofer, and limo driver. In addition to being able to snake your drain, re-shingle your house, and perform stand-up comedy, he has also written and performed a one-man show called, “Cry Like A Man,” which details the struggles of blue-collar comedians. His philosophy: know who you are and have people laugh with you. Barcena brings the laughs to The Palm Beach Improv at City Place (550 S. Rosemary Ave. Suite 250, West Palm Beach), for seven shows Thursday through Sunday. With tickets costing just under $16, you could bring your amigos. Call 561-833-1812, or visit
