Weekend Planner — Comedy: Peaches Rodriguez brings the laughs Friday to City Sportz Grille in Northampton

Published: 8/24/2016 3:36:21 PM

As you may recall, Peaches Rodriguez was a world-class break dancer in the ’80s who appeared in the hip-hop classic movie “Beat Street” (1984).

These days, Peaches has been making a name for herself as a stand-up comedian known for her twisted perspective and edgy humor (“Thais and us Latinos have a lot in common — we’re the ones who leave the Christmas lights up all year round”). She performs at clubs in New York City, has opened for Arsenio Hall in Atlantic City, appears as a regular at the annual Jack Daniels Latino Comedy Festival, and has done three U.S.O. tours of duty.

On Friday, she’ll be at City Sports Grille on Conz in Northampton to headline “Split Personalities,” a comedy show that will also feature local stand-ups Jennifer Myszkowski, Laura Fattaruso, Jesse Miller and Shaun Connolly.

7:30-9:30 p.m. $10 advance; $15 at the door. sparetimeentertainment.com
