Our Last Comic Standing
So it seems as though mainstream TV is keeping track of Latinos. All of a sudden Latinos are playing a huge role in these contest shows like America's Got Talent and now Last Comic Standing. We have Felipe Esparza who loves to add a little bit of Latino flavor to his skits. Felipe has been a stand-up comedian for 14 years. He was raised in East Los Angeles (Boyle Heights), and has worked closely with fellow comedians Paul Rodriguez, Gabriel Iglesias and Russell Peters. He got his first taste of major exposure when he appeared on a Showtime "Diamonds in the Rough" segment early in his career.
From what I see he is pretty funny. He brings real life situations to life and opens up the Latino world to mainstream audiences. And it's not awkward; Esparza's life experiences really make you think about your own life as well. Why? Because remember, in America we are all Latino.
