El Norteno: Se Cruza Pal Norte Tour

  • Edson Zuniga

    Edson Zuniga

    Latin/Hispanic

    Edson Zuñiga studied a carrer as an Aviator Pilot, but even with that profession, something woke up in the world of Comedy. This is how in May of 1994, the character of Norteño, emerged from the contest known as "Riatatán" organized by Fernando Arau. Since then, he has had a steady rise in his career as a comedian, performing in various television programs such as: Siempre en Domingo (Always on Sunday), Al Ritmo de la noche (At the Rythym of the Night), Un Nuevo Dia (One New Day), Otro Rollo (Another Roll), Los Comediantes (The Comedians), Hoy (Today) on continuously over the several years. Also, Una Noche con Yuri (One Night with Yuri), Festival Del Humor (Festival of Humor), Al Fin de Semana (At The End of The Week), El Hospital del Paisa (The Paisa Hospital), Guerra De Chistes (Joke Wars), El Baño (The Bath), Desmadruga2. In addition, he has toured throughout the Mexican Republic on different stages such as Town Theaters, Country Fairs, Rodeos, Private Events, Conventions and Bars. He currently has 24 years as a comedian. 

    Today, “El Norteño”, counts with multiple recognitions for his presentations in Theatre of the Village, and countless Fairs from all over the Mexican Republic. 

    The personality “El Norteño” is native of Monterrey, is irreverent and extremely daring to play the themes and jokes that define his comedy and show.

    In the year 2001, the character "El Compayito" is born, which is played by the hand of Edsón Zúñiga and his voice is personified with that of “El Norteño” with a little more acute the tone of voice. This character is used exclusively for Televisa Sports in its sports news section. The first international sporting event in which this character was showcased was at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, in the year 2002. “El Compayito’s” success is such that it becomes a favorite of the Sports Television and is now also exhibited at the Olympics in Greece, Beijing, China, London, England, Sao Paulo, Brazil and in the World Cups of Korea and Japan, Germany, South Africa, Brazil and Russia 2018. Similarly, this charactes is also in the Cups; Gold in the USA and America, as well as in different sporting events in countries of the American continent, as well as in the World Athletics Championships in Finland.

    Although the character of “El Compayito” has brought very quick satisfaction to Edson Zúñiga, the comedian accepts that his former characterization of “El Norteño” has helped him to better understand his identity as a Mexican.

    Furthermore, interestingly enough, In 2013, Edson Zúñiga "El Norteño", premiered as a singer of the Mexican Music genre, in the Regional Grupero show, with a digital material called; “Machocorridos” (Manly songs). This song acquired much success for his boldness in the lyrics of the songs and in 2014, he launches the 2nd edition of the “Machocorridos.”
