Stand Up Comedy Hosted by Victor Varnado
Knitting Factory Brooklyn (361 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn)
Victor Varnado’s devilish knack for outrageousness and originality plays out in his personal URL: bestalbino.com. Varnado has navigated the adversities of born legally blind and an African-American albino with unique sensibilities to become a nationally known actor and comedian and, according to legend, a Jedi. You may recognize him from appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Comedy Central, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Adult Swim and My Name is Earl – not to mention films with Arnold Schwarzenegger (End of Days), Eddie Murphy (The Adventures of Pluto Nash), Julia Stiles (A Guy Thing) and Werner Herzog (Julien Donkey Boy).
As a filmmaker, Victor Varnado has succeeded in almost every role. He has appeared alongside Eddie Murphy and Arnold Schwarzenegger as an actor and co-written a feature film with comic book legend Stan Lee. Victor also directed the feature Twisted Fortune starring Charlie Murphy and Dave Attell for Warner Brothers Pictures. His short films have been featured on Comedy Central’s Jump Cuts, CollegeHumor.com and numerous film festivals. “Roboto Supremo”, Victor’s most recent short features Michel Gondry (Director of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) as the Japanese-speaking mayor of Final Tokyo.
