Alek’s childhood friend and standup comedian Rio Riojas stops by Keep Your Voice Down to discuss his recent foray into the world of standup comedy and his upcoming show in Kalamazoo (Wednesday, March 22 at Final Gravity Brewing Company, 8 p.m.). The Bay City native and East Lansing resident tells Doug and Alek about how he got started, how his act has evolved over the last year, his comedic style, how becoming a father has influenced the way he performs onstage, and why you shouldn’t bring your kids to see his act.
You can find Rio on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Rio accepts donations via PayPal: @drdecide, Venmo: idrdecide or CashApp: $decidersr.
The show’s theme is “Howling at the Moon” by D Fine Us, and this week’s outro music is “Bloody Heaven” by Ran Raiten. You can support Keep Your Voice Down with a donation here.
