Comedian and actor Felipe Esparza is best known for his raw, real-life comedy that audiences everywhere can relate to. After 17 years of stand-up comedy, various television appearances, and two movies, Felipe competed on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2010, walking away with the top prize. Two years later he produced and released on Showtime his first one-hour stand-up special, “They’re Not Gonna Laugh at You.” In 2014 he launched his podcast, “What’s Up, Fool?” on the All Things Comedy network where it entered the top 15 comedy podcasts and the top 70 podcasts in all categories within the first week of its release.
Over the course of his career, Felipe has appeared in a national Honda campaign and a national Target commercial. He has also been on “The Eric Andre Show,” regular segments on TruTV’s “World’s Dumbest…,” “The Arsenio Hall Show,” “Comics Unleashed,” Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” Showtime’s “Comics Without Borders,” TBS’s “Lopez Tonight,” and Galavision’s first English-speaking show “Que Locos.”
Treena Parvello, Director of Public Relations and Communications for the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise, said, “Felipe Esparza’s comedy is really about finding humor in the struggles of everyday life, something we can all relate to! Desert Diamond Casino is excited to bring funnyman Felipe Esparza to the Diamond Center for the first time on Jan. 27; tickets go on sale Dec. 2, just in time to complete your holiday shopping lists!”
