*Los Angeles, CA — Comedian Ricky Del Rosario returns to the stage after a 10 year hiatus from comedy.

*Now, refueled and recharged with brand new material and a new DVD, Ricky Del Rosario is ready to re-claim his status as one of America’s “top fifteen urban comics in the country” as once voted by HBO. His new DVD entitled, Ricky Del Rosario I Missed You is charged with Ricky’s antics and great talent to do wonderful impersonations of prominent characters from the world of entertainment, sports, politics and people he meets in everyday life.

This physical ability to manipulate his body and facial expressions; and to demonstrate his vocal versatility is what sets him apart from delivering a mere joke. Ricky goes way beyond the punch line, taking comedy to extreme levels literally “putting his foot into it,” evoking mad laugher from his audience.

On Saturday, January 19th, at the LA Athletic Club located at 431 West 7th Street, Los Angeles, 90071, Ricky Del Rosario will have the privilege of joining the best in sports and entertainment to present his new DVD, Ricky Del Rosario “I missed you.” At the red carpet VIP All Star Weekend Party, hosted by Lakers superstar (SF) Matt Barnes.
