ERNIE G – FREE COMEDY SHOW & DISCUSSION

September 7, 2017 - Santa Rosa Junior College is excited to host Ernie G in two upcoming, free events!

Ernie G is one of the hottest, multi-talented, young Latino entertainers in the country today. His comedy has been seen by millions of TV viewers on shows such as Comedy Central’s “Make Me Laugh,” B.E.T.’s “Comic View,” Ed McMahon’s “Next Big Star,” & Sí TV’s “Funny is Funny!” He is one of the original stars of Galavisión’s hit comedy show “Qué Locos!” hosted by George Lopez, appearing six times, along with two appearances on “The Best of Qué Locos!” He has appeared on HBO Latino’s “Habla Again,” MUN2’s “Loco Comedy Jam,” as well as Sí TV’s “Latino Laugh Festival!” and their hip new show, “Inside Joke!” Currently, he is on MTV Tr3s’ “Los Super Icons” and was formerly the “Angry Angelino” from the Channel 13 News in Los Angeles.

A graduate of Loyola Marymount University with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Chicano Studies, Ernie has developed his own unique form of comedy that he calls “Latino Edutainment – Educating and Entertaining with a Latino Flavor!” He has performed for many of the country’s top organizations and corporations, including Disney, Pepsi-Co, General Mills, U.S. Armed Forces, National Council de la Raza, Latin American Educational Foundation and the Hispanic College Fund. He was honored by the City of Los Angeles with the first-ever Mario Moreno “Cantínflas” Award for “representing the Latino community with the same humor and distinction as the legendary Mario Moreno ‘Cantínflas’ and who, like Cantínflas, utilizes his power to help those most in need.”

Ernie performs high-energy comedy as host and producer of “Ernie G’s Comedy Fiesta,” which is a national comedy tour featuring the country’s top Latino comedians performing in venues, colleges and universities throughout the nation.

He was the keynote speaker at UCLA’s 32nd Annual RAZA Graduation. He continues to spread his message of empowerment and transformation through laughter as the national spokesperson for the Hispanic College Fund and he performs as an inspirational comedian nationwide.
