Studio Stand-Up returns with some of the most talented comedians on the rise in the region! Don’t miss the return of Pedro Gonzalez to the Appell Center – he was a laugh riot when he appeared on the Capitol Theatre stage in 2021! Pedro riffs on what is like to date, work and live in America when you were not born in America…and you have an accent…and your name is Pedro. His favorite thing about comedy is to defy stereotypes and challenge his audience’s point of view through intelligent humor.
Pedro Gonzalez was born in Colombia and came to the US at 19. He went to UCLA to get a Ph.D. in Literature so he could get a cushy job teaching at a university and work only a few hours a day. That plan collapsed once he found out stand-up comedy requires only one hour of work a day and he’s been chasing that whale ever since.
