I’ve been in the crazy restaurant business for 10 years w/ my brother. #VSPOT 🌱 By evening, I perform stand up comedy any chance i can find, create silly videos or memes, do all of our restaurant’s graphic design, sing karaoke, draw, eat edibles, edit video, & play futbol. Between the restaurant & stand up comedy, i’ve been in a few things:

“The Brooklyn native is pretty busy these days. Not only does Alex Carabaño co-run three Latin-themed vegan eateries, he is also a very sought-after up & coming comedian. This unsigned talent is quickly on the rise with humor about his veggie diet in a close-minded Colombian family, playing soccer with people from across the globe, working in the restaurant business for many years, & more. Alex’s talents have landed him on BET where he won $1000 at the legendary Apollo theater, Paste Magazine’s Stand up Studio feature, visiting the African island of Seychelles opening for Tony Woods, the CBS season premiere of “The Job,” Sirius XM radio’s “American Latino Radio,” PETA Latino, & across the Caribbean on TV via “Island Xclusive.”

As well, I love playing futbol with all my crazy immigrants through out NY/NJ & doing graphic design:
– Born & raised in Brooklyn, New York.
– Ethnic background mostly from Colombia with a touch of Greek back in the fam
– I have no stage experience prior to stand up comedy & have never taken any acting classes but PLEASE recommend a class or teacher! I will also soon co-star in the web series “Short Order” as my own character El Chefe of Pot & Pans which was a YouTube series I created on my own & was featured on New York Magazine Online.
