Yamil Piedra is doing everything possible to launch his career beyond his previous accomplishments as the left nut in comedy duo A Pair of Nuts. Since the group split several years ago, Piedra has been perfecting his craft of comedy in Miami’s underground comedy scene and pulling it all together for his Pretty Rock Project.
The Pretty Rock Project has been well received around town, particularly for its combination of sketch comedy, videos, audience interaction, social media integration, and other ways of taking his stage show beyond just a passive activity between an audience and performer.
This Saturday, Piedra presents a very special Pretty Rock Christmas Spectacular — hopefully in the vein of a cheesy ’70s special, long Bob Barker microphone included — at Backstage @ the Fillmore (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach). Along with Piedra’s typical comedic ridiculousness, there will also be guests from Safari Adventure toting a menagerie of creatures for Piedra to make fun of.
