Gwen Filosa: The Very Happy 50th Birthday Comedy Special

Gwen Filosa is an award-winning journalist who covers Key West for the Miami Herald. She also hosts the “It’s Too Early” talk show weekday mornings on Island 106.9 FM. Before landing in Key West in 2011, she spent a decade covering crime in New Orleans for The Times-Picayune and was part of the staff that won the Pulitzer Prizes for Breaking News and the Public Service Medal for their coverage of the Hurricane Katrina disaster. She’s also a part-time dog sitter. Because this is Key West, where everyone has three jobs. Plus it’s dogs.

Gwen Filosa will celebrate turning 50 years old by headlining a show at Comedy Key West!
We know! She could easily pass for 48.

You’re invited to the birthday bash, which is at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 16, and she will be joined by other local comedians.

Gwen has been doing standup at Comedy Key West since its inception in 2016. She’s appeared at clubs in New York and Miami and was invited to the Flamingo Comedy Festival in Boca Raton in 2019. She has opened for celebrity comedians such as Chad Daniels, Christine Hurley and Jessimae Peluso.

Please note:

If you are purchasing Booth Seats, 1 ticket = 1 Booth, which is good for two people. Please do not purchase (2) booths if you are only coming with (2) people.

Showtime at 8:30 PM. Doors at 7:30 PM.

Tickets purchased in advance will ensure that groups can sit together. Please let us know in advance if you will be joining another party.

We ask that you please keep all conversations to a minimum during the show. It's a small room, and even whispering can be heard by the performers and people around you. If this seems like a no-brainer, it's because you are sober. After a drink or two, it sometimes seems less obvious!
