Giving the Gift of Laughter
At P.J.’s Comedy Club at The San Franciscan Resort
Not often is one afforded the opportunity to split a gut laughing so hard it hurts while simultaneously helping someone truly in need. Just such a chance is being offered Saturday January 31, 2009 by P.J. Ensminger owner of Vallarta’s new Comedy Club located in the San Franciscan Resort.
“Gib Hauersperger has been a wonderful friend to so many people here in Puerto Vallarta, this is a fantastic opportunity for us to help him in a way that will really make a difference – and laugh while doing so.” Said PJ.
Gib, who has been undergoing very expensive treatment for cancer, has been a resident of Puerto Vallarta for over six years. He has assisted countless people from his various concierge desks during his time living here and continues to do so now at Blue Seas Beach Club. His contributions to Vallarta, and to the Gay community here, are innumerable.
The show begins at 8:00PM at P.J.’s Comedy Club located in the San Franciscan Resort at 213 Calle Pilitas, just east of Olas Altas in Vallarta’s Romantic Zone. There will be plenty to drink and lots of delicious Mexican snacks (botanas) provided by Hotel Casa Cupula who is co-hosting the event with the Comedy Club.
For tickets, call and leave message at 222-6473 ext 122 or PJ’s direct line of 044-322-174-1751. Tickets can be purchased at the door. However, as seating is limited, it is recommended to make reservations.

His sketch and improv have been seen at iO, the Annoyance Theater, Second City Unhinged, Chicago’s Sketch Fest, the D.C. Comedy Festival, The Del Close Marathon, and the Toronto Improv Festival. His one man show NO OUTLET, has been perfrmed in several theaters in chicago and even downtown Hollywood. He has performed in stand-up clups from New York to L.A., even Istanbul, Turkey.

“I’m delighted to be able to assist P.J. in this truly unique event. As a long time friend and co-worker, Gib has always been there for me and for so many of us in Puerto Vallarta.” says Darrique Barton, Manager of Casa Cupula. “We’re all going to laugh a ton and have a great time while helping him; what could be better?”
