Comedian and actor, Felipe Esparza will perform live at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center on November 22.
Felipe Esparza, best known for his raw, real-life comedy that audiences everywhere can relate to. With his signature wild hair, and his often imitated phrase, “what’s up, fool?”, he has been associated with his friend Gabriel Iglesias, who often recounts (and imitates) his experiences with Felipe in his act.
After 17 years of stand-up comedy, various television appearances and two movies, Felipe walked away with the title prize on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2010. In 2012, Felipe produced and released his first one-hour stand-up special, “They’re Not Gonna Laugh at You”, for Showtime. It is currently available on DVD and Netflix. In 2014, Felipe launched a podcast entitled, “What’s Up Fool?” podcast on the All Things Comedy network started by Bill Burr and Al Madrigal. In its first week, it entered the top 15 comedy podcasts and the top 70 podcasts in all categories. It quickly became a fan favorite with a strong, loyal following. It is available on iTunes, Stitcher and SoundCloud/
Felipe’s other television appearances include a national Honda campaign, a national Target commercial, The Eric Andre Show, regular segments on TruTV’s “World’s Dumbest…”, “The Arsenio Hall Show”, “Comics Unleashed”, Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend”, and “Russell Simmons Presents: Stand-Up at the El Rey”, Showtime’s “Comics Without Borders”, TBS’s “Lopez Tonight”, and Galavision’s first English-speaking show, a stand-up comedy show called “Que Locos” (which spurred the careers of both George Lopez and Gabriel Iglesias). Felipe is currently touring comedy clubs and theaters across the country and is working on his next our standup special.
