About Featured Comedian Cristela Alonzo

Cristela Alonzo made history in 2015 when she became the first Latina to create, produce and star in her own network sitcom, “Cristela” for ABC. During that same year, she split her time between LA and NYC to serve as one of ABC’s favorite guest hosts on their hit daytime talk show, “The View”. You can see her stand-up special, Lower Classy on Netflix.

Cristela established herself in the stand-up world with her half hour special for Comedy Central and numerous appearances on “Conan,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” She was also one of the most requested comedians of all time in the college market, booking over 300 shows across the U.S. in three years. She has topped multiple comedy power-player lists including “Variety’s Top 10 Comics to Watch,” “Top 10 Comedy Acts to Watch” by LA Weekly, Time Out’s “Comics to Watch,” and “One of the 50 Comedians You Should and WILL Know” by Vulture.

2016 was a stellar year for Cristela as she made her motion picture debut in Sony Pictures’ “Angry Birds” and taped her first one-hour stand-up special for Netflix “Lower Classy.”

Originally from San Juan, Texas—Cristela is based in Los Angeles, and when not on the road, can be found performing at various area clubs, including her home club The Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach.
