About Felipe Esparza
Felipe Esparza just won Last Comic Standing! He is best known for his raw, real-life comedy, his irreverent on-stage persona, wild hair, and his often-imitated phrase, “What‘s up fool?“ On his new comedy album, REBOUND MATERIAL, we get it all. 44 tracks about everything from the war in Iraq and sitting in the back of police cars to partying with white people and Mexican birthday parties. He also shares - “I‘m not a tough guy, but I can beat up everyone at Trader Joe‘s, but at Food-for-Less I shut up. They don‘t have aisles, they have alleys.“ He is a product of the streets of East Los Angeles (Boyle Heights, to be exact). There is no subject that Felipe can‘t make fun of. He could stand on a stage without a single joke and make people laugh, but that wouldn‘t happen. He is one of the best comedy writers in the business. Many people are surprised to find out that Felipe is the same person referred to and imitated in several onstage stories by fellow comedian, Gabriel Iglesias. You have recently seen Esparza winning the 7th season of “Last Comic Standing,“ and appearing on the new Comedy Central series, “Russell Simmons Presents: Stand-Up at the El Rey.“ Other TV credits include: ABC‘s “Comics Unleashed,“ Showtime‘s “Comics Without Borders,“ BET‘s “Comic View,“ and “One Mic Stand,“ and Galavision‘s “Que Locos“ (where he holds the title of most appearances by any comedian). He also completed production on two films this year, “The Deported“, starring Nick Turturro, Talia Shire and Paul Rodriguez and “I‘m Not Like that No More“, based on Felipe‘s stand-up material and starring Felipe and Paul Rodriguez as father and son.
