"Carlos Escobar is my name. Yes the last name is correct. Yes, I am also Colombian. No, I dont drink coffee, dance Salsa, nor supply cocaine. I hail from the home of the worl famous Indoor swapmeet in Pico Rivera California.

As far back as I can remember, I have always been artistic. I have expressed my creativity through my drawings and sketches. I fell in love with music and singing at an early age. When I reached junior high I combined drawing and comedy into my creative writing assignments. My Language Arts teacher Ms. langston would allow me to read my work in class where I would get serious laughs. I fell in love with the reactions my laughing classmates expressed. Later in Highschool I played sports and then joined Drama class. I learned to develop my comedic timing through improvisation.

I attempted stand-up at 17. Didn't do so well and promised to never do it again. I continued improv comedy and music while working in the wireless Industry for 8 years. Like a blessing from the sky I was given the greatest opportunity in life... I was fired!!! With the little employment choices, I began my stand up career."
