In addition to traditional speakers for the night's entertainment, Pioneertown Comedy Chuckwagon will also transmit the whole show through a commercial grade FM Transmitter so you will be able to enjoy everything on your FM Radio without ever having to leave the safety of your vehicle.
The entire show will also be projected onto two 15o" Movie Screens to help ensure that everyone gets a good view.
Carlos Oscar has been described as a lean, clean joke machine. Carlos was born on the 4th of July in Manhattan at Bellevue Hospital. He says, "What are the odds a Puerto Rican born on the 4th of July in New York City?? I know 2-1."
After serving 4 years in U.S. Air Force, he moved to Los Angeles to embark on a career in the entertainment industry. While studying acting at UCLA, he bumped into comedy. "I was doing a comedic scene in class at UCLA. The immediate laughter response from the audience sparked me into pursuing stand-up comedy."
Carlos has preformed on The Tonight Show, ABC's The View and numerous Comedy Central appearances, but he’s making them laugh on land and at sea. He was voted the number one act on the high seas winning the coveted and inaugural ‘The Princess Cruises Entertainer of the Year’ award. To date, he is the only comedian to ever win the award.
If you enjoy the vintage advertising that you hear on Pioneertown Public radio, then you are sure to love what you'll see before the evening's entertainment takes the stage.
Before the show, as cars are parked and food is served, we will run vintage drive-in theater and television advertising as well as Pioneertown Trivia.
Mine Train Smokery was established by Virgil Wagaman & Stacy Brewer to bring quality smoked meats and sides at a “Home Town” price to the Morongo Basin.
The Comedy Chuckwagon wouldn't be complete without finger lickin' western barbecue during the show.. and The Mine Train Smokery will be there to provide hot and delicious meats and treats directly to your vehicle!
Do you want to enjoy some delicious meats and treats during the show?
Meals will be available for purchase at the show. But please make it easier for us and purchase them in advance.
John and Gay Smith purchased the Desert Willow Ranch from Russel Hayden back in 1969. What you now see on the five acre lot has been lovingly laid out and developed over the years by the Smith family.
The Desert Willow Ranch offers many unique amenities all in one conveniently located spot and can be rented year round as a prime Pioneertown vacation getaway or event venue.
What all does a ticket include and how many people can come in a car?
A Parking Ticket will grant one car access to the event. The number of passengers allowed per vehicle must not exceed the number of safety belts/seats in said vehicle. Each guest will get a raffle ticket when their vehicle is parked.
Can I bring my dog?
Of course! We ask that you please keep your dog on a leash while outside of your vehicle. But bring as many dogs as you'd like.
Are children allowed to come?
Children are welcome to come - though this event is aimed more for adults. ;)
What is the raffle?
Each guest will be given a raffle ticket upon entry. Prizes will be raffled off to lucky guests before the end of the night.
What if I am late?
Please don’t show up too late! Once the raffle starts, the gates are closed.
Can I bring a camper or RV to the show?
No. RVs and campers are not currently allowed as we simply do not have the space for them.
How do I get sound to hear the comedy show? Should I bring my own battery-operated radio or use the radio in my car?
The sound is broadcast through an FM transmitter that you can receive through any FM radio, including the one in many car stereos. If you are concerned that your car battery will run down, or if your car does not have an FM radio, then please bring a portable battery-powered FM radio.
Can I use a radio app on my phone to listen?
A small portable FM radio works best. We cannot guarantee that an Apple or Android app will work as they tend to pick up internet radio rather than local stations.
Will there be another Pioneertown Comedy Chuckwagon?
There is a Comedy Chuckwagon hosted on the first Tuesday of every month.
Why is this being held on a Tuesday night?
Because there isn't anything else to do in Pioneertown on a Tuesday. ;)
