Filipe Esparza's Bad Hambre Tour
With his wild tangle of curly black hair and a boyish, mischievous grin permanently on his face, Felipe Esparza cuts a unique figure in the world of stand up. Winner of the 2010 season of Last Comic Standing, the Mexican-born, East LA-raised funnyman overcame the poverty, gang violence and drug addiction of his youth using comedy as an emotional outlet. Don't miss the hilarious dark horse during The Bad Hambre Tour!
Esparza's life-story reads like a twisted, modern fairytale. The son of immigrants, he fell in with a gang and wound up in rehab where a spiritual advisor helped him to get clean and follow his dreams of becoming a comic. Fusing upbeat energy with black comedy inspired by the hardships that shaped him, Esparza pulls no punches on stage. His deeply funny, self-deprecating routines are filled with authentic, true-to-life observations ranging from his dysfunctional relationship with his parents to the politics of his Latina heritage in the Trump era.
