Thai Rivera of Comedy Central will do his best to make you uncomfortable — in the best way possible — when he performs an R-rated show next week at the Crystal Bay Casino.

According to a news release from Tahoe Comedy North, Rivera’s “politically incorrect style of humor has taken the comedy world by storm.”

Having moved from Arizona to Los Angeles, Rivera quickly became a force on the comedy scene and has performed with some of the biggest names in the world of stand-up.

“Some of you may recognize him from the Jo Koy Comedy Tour,” event promoters said.

He has also been featured on Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham” and The Logo Network’s “One Night Stand Up.”

“Thai’s disarming style and easy going delivery will put you at ease,” according to the news release. “Thai’s comedy has not only taken him across this country but as far away as Australia and Thule Greenland where he performed for our troops.”
