Comedian and actor Felipe Esparza got his start as a comedian all because someone asked him to list 5 goals in life. During a stint in rehab before he was 21, Felipe was asked what he wanted out of life. As a young immigrant growing up in the projects in Boyle Heights (East L.A.) and then as a teenage father with a drug and alcohol problem, it was a difficult task because he had never thought that far ahead. Among the items on that list, "to be happy", and "be a stand-up comedian" - because of how he connected to an old Bill Cosby album when he was younger. Up until that question, Felipe was under the impression that life was over at 18.

If you had told him back then that all this life experience would one day make people laugh, he wouldn't have believed it. From being raised in the projects in a family of 9 living in the most gang-infested neighborhood in the country to winning NBC's "Last Comic Standing", to selling out live comedy shows all over the country and being able to act in TV shows and movies, Felipe's life has been anything but boring.
After the 16-year "overnight success" of winning Last Comic Standing, Felipe went on to produce his first hour long stand-up comedy special, "They're Not Gonna Laugh at You" (now on Netflix). He has also made several TV appearances such as recurring roles on "The Eric Andre Show" and NBC's "Superstore", TruTV's "World's Dumbest" and "Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey" and was the spokesman for a national Honda campaign and a national Target Mobile campaign.Today, in addition to his live stand-up touring, Felipe hosts a weekly podcast on the All Things Comedy Network called "What's Up Fool?" that focuses on interesting stories from just about anybody.

Recently, Felipe produced his second hour-long stand-up special with his wife Lesa, entitled "Translate This”, premiering on HBO September 30, 2017. He is also developing a sitcom with fellow comedian Dustin Ybarra and writers Bobby Bowman and Peter Murrietta - Felipe and Dustin.

    Comedy

    Felipe Esparza is a comedian and actor 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 good friend Gabriel Iglesias who often recounts (and imitates) his experiences with Felipe in his act. After 16 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 starred in and produced his first one-hour special “They’re Not Gonna Laugh at You“ for Showtime. It is currently available on DVD and Netflix. Felipe is a product of the streets of the Boyle Heights neighborhood of East  Los Angeles and much of his material is the result of trying to find the humor in the struggles of everyday life. “Over the years I've noticed so many changes in all the neighborhoods around me. Gentrification starts to happen and bad neighborhoods start to become good but I like to show the other side of it... The guy who hasn’t changed and probably never will. I have a joke that kind of shows that. It starts off 'I know I'm not a tough guy but I'm pretty sure I can beat up everyone who shops at Trader Joe's'.” Felipe’s other television appearances include TruTV’s “World’s Dumbest…” “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 Galavisión's first Englishspeaking show “Que Locos” (which spurred the careers of both George Lopez and  Gabriel Iglesias). He is currently touring comedy clubs and theaters across the country.
