Stand-up comedian Lisa Alvarado has performed shows throughout the country in clubs, theaters and comedy festivals.

She has appeared on NBC's "Last Comic Standing," Nick at Nite's "The Search for the Funniest Mom in America 2," SiTv and "Qué Loco Comedy Jam."

Alvarado's material is based on her life experiences as a single mom and Latina working in a male-dominant business.

She said it's the best job in the world.

"I love making people laugh," Alvarado said during a phone interview with The Park Record from her home in Los Angeles. "There is no other job like it.

"It's unreal to bond with a group of complete strangers and laugh together," she said. "When the set is going great, I'm laughing, too, and talking with them half the time."

Park City audiences will get two opportunities to learn about Alvarado when she performs at the Egyptian Theatre on Friday, May 31, and Saturday, June 1. She will be joined by fellow comedian Dwight York.
