Alleged New York subway attacker is a comedian who perform in Times Square
Marcos Cofresi, the Bushwick, Brooklyn resident, is billing at West 46th Street’s LOL Comedy Lounge and reportedly performing under the names Leonardo and Leo Cofresi. “I think he’s crazy that people shoot people for no reason,” said the victim’s cousin, who was surprised to learn that the alleged shooter is a comedian. Cofresi, who has two prior arrests, was charged with criminal possession of marijuana and fee evasion and is currently listed as “wanted.”
Participating in the ‘NYC Griends’ showcase, the gunslinger performed at the Front Street Tap Room in August 2022 in Fargo, ND. According to the club’s biography, Cofresi is “a former Dominican gang member. On stage, he has a devil’s advocate style with dumb, observational banter. You can see him on ‘Game Theory’ on HBO.”
In his comedic acts, the 30-year-old gunslinger mainly talks about cops and crime. Laughing at his own joke in a maniacal way, one of Cofresi’s TikTok posts was fueled by crime in his remarks when he said: “Remember when people wanted to get rid of the cops? Remember that, like a year ago? A guy in a turtleneck was like, ‘We should get rid of the cops.’ I was like, ‘You look so stealable!’ I was like, ‘Are you a fighter? Why do you want to get rid of the cops?’ He said, ‘No, I’m not a fighter, I’m a lover.'” And he added: “I was like, ‘No, you’re a victim. We’re going to rob you, dude!’
In a different TikTok video posted in 2022, he quipped, “Selling drugs! Sounds less fucked up when you sing it, right? That’s why rap is so much fun!” The NYPD’s search for the suspect is ongoing and is seeking the public’s help in locating the suspected shooter, according to the New York Post.
Cofresi was seen covering his face and wearing a white neck gaiter that had a skull on it and ran off the train as he entered the station. “What are you looking at?” The comedian asked the tyrant that he could have looked at the appearance of him. The argument quickly turned into bloodshed, according to police sources. On Friday, February 25, NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said, “Comedian wanted in shooting. There was a hit. Marcos drew a gun.”
