Bio

Pedro was born in Colombia and came to the U.S. at 19. He went to UCLA to get a Ph.D. in Literature so he could get a cushy job teaching at a University and work only a few hours a day. That plan collapsed once he found out stand-up comedy requires only one hour of work a day and he’s been chasing that whale ever since. He also writes and performs in his second language, like Nabokov, and much like Nabokov’s Humbert Humbert, he loves… No, that was a joke. His jokes are about what is like to date, work, and live in America when you were not born in America and you have an accent and your name is Pedro. His favorite thing about comedy is to defy stereotypes and challenges his audiences point of view through intelligent humor.
