my close comedian friend, Tino “The Pun King” Romero, writes a lot of fantastic puns. So we couldn’t wait any longer & with my self taught knowledge of Photoshop (humble brag), i created a 34 page book filled with over 125 of his original puns. The process was tedious but simple. Every few days we would meet at my apartment or restaurant & go over his best puns. I would fix up the grammar where needed & help tighten up any loose ends, then envision a comedic scene for each. That would be sent to a professional cartoonist (in the Phillipeans) who was paid per art piece. I then took all the pun comics & created a book using Photoshop a local printer. I am very proud of this book & very happy for Tino to see his brilliant puns come to life. Please consider purchasing a book!

i was having a rough week but still got up on stage with all these GREAT comics. Thank you Remy for the spot!

My new weekly comedy show was POPPIN! Shout outs to Daniel Perafan, Von DeCarlo, Mc Jin, Walker Hays, Kevin Gootee, & Tino Romero. After i helped bark pedestrians in & asked already dining customers to watch, I also went up to perform 12 minutes. This show i started not very long ago has helped me to develop nicely in a safe environment while exposing people to our healthy Latin cuisine.

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!!!

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.
