Cigar City Comedy brings free stand up comedy to St. Pete with this great line-up:

David Weingarten
Joe Riga
Matt Fernandez

David is best known for using a wide range of voices and characters while on stage. His clever writing, blend of self-deprecating and observational humor, and edgy subject matter have made him a crowd favorite. A lifelong Browns fan and former Cleveland, OH resident, he draws from years of failure and sadness to give audiences his perspective on life. David is an active member of Cigar City Comedy, Florida's premier collection of young standup comics, and has performed with Alonzo Bodden, Bobby Slayton, Lynn Koplitz, Rich Vos, and Tom Rhodes. 

With deadpan optimism and off-the-cuff wit, comedian Joe Riga entertains audiences with a view of life as a regular, hard-working American—If that American obsessed over drinking tap water, dogs, and growing up in the 90’s. His critical eye hits familiar topics such as hard work and relationships, but often turns inward, saving the harshest assessments for the comedian himself. His easy going lifestyle engages crowds while establishing a self-aware accessible persona that turns everyday struggles into intelligent humor.

Matt Fernandez's approach to comedy comes off as detached and nonchalant. Originally from Tampa, Matt has performed with some of the biggest names in comedy (Doug Benson, Aziz Ansari, Hannibal Buress, Kyle Kinane, and Jim Jefferies to name a few). Matt has written for College Humor and is a 2nd City alum. He's been featured on Sirius XM Radio, is a member of Cigar City Comedy, and was named one of the fifteen funniest comedians you should be following on twitter His tweets have also been featured on Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Add to that performances at the Funny or Die Oddball Comedy Festival, SLO Comedy Festival, Orlando Indie Comedy Festival, universities, clubs, and theaters throughout the country, as well as his disheveled appearance. It all adds up to a fascinating brand of irreverent comedy.
