About Felipe Esparza
2010 Last Comic Standing Winner!!!!!
Felipe Esparaza is a comedian and actor, best known for his raw, real-life comedy that audiences everywhere can relate to. Known for his wild hair and his often-imitated phrase, "what''s up, fool?", people are always surprised to find out that Felipe is also the same person referred to and imitated in several infamous onstage stories by fellow comedian, Gabriel Iglesias.
Felipe 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. Felipe is one of the best comedy writers in the business.
Felipe got immediate television exposure, when he appeared on a Showtime, "Diamonds in the Rough" segment, just 1 1/2 years into his stand-up career. Since that time, he has appeared on numerous television shows, including ABC''s "Comics Unleashed", Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and "Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey", Showtime''s "Comics Without Borders", BET''s "Comic View", and Galavisión''s "Que Locos" (where he holds the title of most appearances by any comedian).
In 2009, he appeared in his first two feature-length films, “The Deported”, with Nick Turturro, Talia Shire, and Paul Rodriguez and a feature-length film based on his stand-up comedy called, “I’m Not Like That No More”, where he stars opposite Paul Rodriguez.
