New Mexico Hispanic Entertainers Association
Comedian of the Year
Hi! My name is Roger C. Blair and I am a standup comic that was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico way back when. My lovely wife Theresa and I have been married a long, long, time and has produced our four kids Darrell, Yvette, Sean and DeVonne.
I retired as the Chief Electrical Inspector for the City of Albuquerque after 27 years. However, during this time I was Developing my stage legs with my Rock and Roll Band, The Tropics. I also performed in Spanish Theatre with La Compañía de Theatro de Albuquerque with my favorite production being Nuevo Mexico Si!
After many years of singing and acting, stand-
I have also had the privilege of opening up for Joan Rivers at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada in April 2010.
My nickname is the SOUTHWEST BORSCHT BELT COMIC because I perform a “Take my wife Por Favor” kind of jokes. Why? Because my jokes focus on the southwest home front by playing off the lighter side of growing up as a modern Anglo/Hispanic American in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
To me, my biggest thrill is making people laugh. They say ”that laughter is the best medicine.” And I believe it! I am very proud of the recent honor of being awarded the New Mexico Hispano Entertainer's Association People's Choice Award for Comedian of the Year. So, I look forward to continuing to make people laugh for many years to come.
