performed a 10 min guest spot for my first time at the historic Dangerfield’s altering my routine slightly & thankfully the crowd really enjoyed it, as well as the owner, Tony, who was watching & passed me immediately to join their roster of comics. 💥💥 I’ve heard mixed reviews about this place but I thought it was fucking cool as hell. This awesome guy Tony was best friends with my comedic idol Rodney Dangerfield when they opened back in 1969!! I love their old school feel which is like being in a time capsule from the piano man on stage with you, to the little table lamps that use actual wax candles, to the mature NY crowd, to Chario Antonio (their 80 year old longtime waiter). This doesn’t mean I “made it,” (so you can stop saying that now) ((thenx)) but it was an accomplishment i’m proud of. I love performing & maybe one day it’ll lead to something bigger but I am very happy with my current pace & improvements. (I recently stopped drinking before performing which was a fantastic decision.) Now I’ve been doing for a while but it’s always been a side hustle. Don’t forget, my brother Danny along with our great friend Steve & myself, all still run a small chain of Latin Vegan eateries full-time, which we’ve hustled for many many years now, so that energy may never derail. I’ll just continue to squeeze in more time for comedy as things progress. To be honest, if things get even better, I don’t even think i could actually handle a life of full time comedy 😂😭 but we’ll cross that bridge IF we get there. I just want to also thank the awesome & hilarious David Suarez & his New Comic All-Stars for the spot plus DAVID MCKAY for coming thru. It was very cool performing alongside Paul Virzi, Bob DiBuono, former writer for Rodney, Jeffrey Gurian, & all the other hysterical comics including those who I mingled with by the bar. I have nothing but positive things to say: great staff, great comics, great crowd, & great atmosphere. I hope to one day be like Mr.Dangerfield utilizing our back showroom at VSpot Organic to showcase talent because I know how hard it is to find a booker who will giveyou a chance without a current respectable TV credit. #feelingthankful

Saturday Night Live’s Melissa Villaseñor & Curb Your Enthusiasm’s JB Smoove…

JB Smoove dined at our Park Slope location with his now vegan wife. Sitting next to them, coincidentally, was comedian Jamie Kilstein. We all chatted a bit, had some laughs & i took this photo because we are three funny mofos!😉
Then, earlier today, I was working our cafe next door to New York Comedy Club, but escaped to perform on this awesome charity show where Saturday Night Live’s newest cast member, Melissa Villaseñor, also performed. (After the show, she tried one of our vegan empanadas, woo hoo!) If you didn’t know, she’s the first Latina to be cast on the emmy award winning comedy show. AY DIOS MIO!!!

i had a blast performing in the BROOKLYN COMEDY FESTIVAL at Union Hall (Park Slope, Brooklyn). I followed Comedy Central’s Hari Kondabolu who just had a great set which was perfect for me because the audience was hype & were ready for more comedy, so that’s what i gave them! I am very happy with my performance, here are some clips that I posted on my FB: (‘like’ my fanpage por favor!)

my Usain Bolt video went viral on Facebook!!!

wow, i didn’t see that coming. On Monday, i made a little Usain Bolt video which somehow has currently over 772,000 total views (that i know of). some people stole & re-uploaded it on their own entertainment pages which i’m OK with but it’s crazy though! i now have 425 friend requests which is DOPEEE but PLEASE people, just ‘like’ my fanpage or subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow me on Instagram instead. (just search my name there because I won’t be able to accept everyone here.) 😕 in this entertainment game, you have to build a following on your social media accounts so help me out. and i see that my Jamaican videos are a big hit so i will definitely do more but i dunno… dem na ready fi dis! dem cyant angle me!! i man is a blood claat comedy SOLDIER!!! 💥🔫😜🇯🇲🇺🇸🇨🇴 #ThanksEveryone #Blessings

blessed to be on these hot lineups @ NY comedy club & Caroline’s

last night, I had a blast opening up the 7pm show at New York Comedy Club. I was next door at our VSPOT Gramercy location working & hanging with The Cooligans for the Euro Final before my set. Tonight, i’m on The Village Lantern’s 8pm show then rushing over to Times Square for Caroline’s On Broadway’s 9pm show. I am truly blessed to squeeze in time away from our restaurants to pursue my love of performing stand up comedy. No manager nor agent, the hustle is all me. I am so grateful to be a part of these power house line ups.
