Nery Saenz is a funny man with a funny name. New Times named him Best Comedian in its 2011 “Best of Miami” issue. The proudly Miami-born comic gets crowds giggling to the point of tears. His routines appeal to nationwide audiences, but pack a little extra punch for those of us in the 305. Though few of his tales are specifically about Miami, they’re seasoned with South Florida spice. Think living with your parents well past the age of 30, and mysterious check-engine lights that flicker on after your car has been pounded by 94-degree heat and 400-percent humidity.
This Saturday at 8 and 10:15 p.m., Saenz will take his act to the Miami Science Museum Theater (3280 S. Miami Ave., Miami). Come especially prepared to laugh, because this show, presented by Have-Nots Comedy, will be recorded and used for a future live comedy CD release.
