After 16 years of stand-up comedy, various television appearances and two movies, Felipe walked away with the title prize on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2010. In 2012, Felipe starred in and produced his first one-hour special, “They’re Not Gonna Laugh at You“, for Showtime. .” Felipe’s other television appearances include TruTV’s “World’s Dumbest…”, “Comics Unleashed”, Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend”, and “Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey”, Showtime’s “Comics Without Borders”, TBS’s “Lopez Tonight”, and Galavisión’s first Englishspeaking show, “Que Locos” (which spurred the careers of both George Lopez and Gabriel Iglesias).
Felipe is a product of the streets of the Boyle Heights neighborhood of East Los Angeles and much of his material is the result of trying to find the humor in the struggles of everyday life. “Over the years I’ve noticed so many changes in all the neighborhoods around me. Gentrification starts to happen and bad neighborhoods start to become good but I like to show the other side of it: The guy who hasn’t changed and probably never will. I have a joke that kind of shows that. It starts off, ‘I know I’m not a tough guy, but I’m pretty sure I can beat up everyone who shops at Trader Joe’s.
Felipe Esparza is best known for his raw, real-life comedy that audiences everywhere can relate to. With his signature wild hair, and his often-imitated phrase, “what’s up, fool?”, he has been associated with his good friend Gabriel Iglesias, who often recounts (and imitates) his experiences with Felipe in his act.
This show features Larry “Bubbles” Brown who has made multiple appearances on the David Letterman show.
