Alex Encinia and RogueComedy – Growing the Comedy Scene in the Brazos Valley
"To anyone just noticing the rising local comedy scene, it may seem like it’s all happened overnight. But the reality is, it’s been a slow gradual process for a good while. A process built upon a solid foundation with clear goals and objectives. Alex Encinia started with just one open mic at 5 knocks Speakeasy in 2018. At the time, the troupe had only five local comics. They were determined to not only be successful in their location, but to expand into new areas."
Brazos Valley Comedy fills Bryan with laughs
In addition to his own comedy routines, Encinia produces and hosts different shows for Brazos Valley Comedy and Rogue Comedy. Encinia also makes flyers and promotional material for these events.
“It's been really cool seeing it come from losing money and literally nobody in a crowd to I don't have to worry if there’s a crowd on Wednesdays anymore,” Encinia said.
