Erik Rivera

Just back from his appearance at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, where he was hand selected to perform for Kevin Hart's Laugh OutLoud Network, Erik Rivera keeps making his mark on the stand-up comedy scene.

Since his Late Night debut on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, a recognition that has been a springboard to many comedy greats, Rivera has become a familiar face on television. He was then chosen as one of the Top 100 comedians to be invited to perform in the re-launch of NBC’s Last Comic Standing.

In 2015 Erik got to cross off another comedy milestone when he recorded his debut 1 Hour Comedy Special, "I'm No Expert" which is available on iTunes & Amazon. Last year Rivera was cast to star alongside Brandon T Jackson and DeRay Davis in Oxygen's docu-series "Living With Funny" - a look at life off stage for the touring comedians. Recently he co-starred in CBS's most talked about episode of Superior Donuts, where they tackled the current state of immigration in the United States!

2019 is starting off with a bang as Erik will be featured in HBO/HBO Latino’s “Entre Nos” stand up comedy showcase, highlighting the nation’s funniest Latino comedians!

Big Citric

Big Citric Bio

Anthony “Citric” Campos was born and raised in Boyle Heights, a predominantly Latino neighborhood in East Los Angeles. As a child, Citric was impressed with performers such as Michael Jackson and John Travolta, and dreamed of becoming a performer one day.

Citric’s dreams were put on hold when, as a teenager, he became actively involved in a gang. After years of living on the edge and on the wrong side of the law, Citric decided in his early 20’s that it was time to grow up and take care of business when his son Eric was born.

Inspired by Latino hip hop artists Kid Frost and Mellow Man Ace, Citric started performing with the hip hop group Browntown Looters in the 1990’s. The group played at local venues and eventually landed a single deal called “Dope House in The Ghetto” with an independent label. and also the group was asked to do background work on the music video “Lil’ Ghetto Boy” with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. So When one of their singles became a huge hit in Japan, Citric and the group had the privilege of travelling to Japan to headline the annual Japan Lowrider Super Show.

Citric caught the “acting bug” soon after he returned from Japan The group started focusing on doing mostly Spanish rap & that’s when the group officially became Pueblo Cafe with Big Citric as the lead rapper. Also around that time Citric was Co hosting a hip hop interview show on a LATV called “The Hip Hop Show”

Throughout the mid 2000’s Citric continued to book background roles as thugs, gang members and prisoners, and was ultimately “discovered” by director Mike Judge. A casting director saw a photo of Citric on a website promoting his music and tracked him down to audition for a role in Judge’s new film “Idiocracy.” Although he had no acting experience, other than gigs as a background actor, Citric booked the job and unleashed his huge comedy chops when he played the hilarious and memorable role of Secretary of Defense in the film.

Since that time, Citric has appeared in numerous films and TV shows in both comedic and dramatic roles, including the film “Harsh Times” with Christian Bale and Eva Longoria and the TV comedy series “Silicon Valley” on HBO. He has also performed voiceover services for characters on comedies such as “King of the Hill” and “Squidbillies.”

Citric is currently a series regular playing George Lopez’s sidekick on the comedy series LOPEZ on TV Land. In addition to being a series regular on LOPEZ, Citric is also a music consultant on the show and his music has appeared in numerous episodes of the series.

Citric still lives in his old stomping ground of East L.A. He continues to balance his passions of music and acting, and enjoys speaking with youth about the path his life has taken so that they can be inspired to find their own path to success.

In 2019 Citric Started His Standup comedy Journey, in just a short time he has become a staple in many Comedy Club shows in Sothern California. Citric has Traveled To New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon and Nevada To perform his hilarious take on Life, Fatherhood and Dating!

Martin Moreno

Martin Moreno bio

Martin Moreno's comedy career didn't begin until he was in his early 30's and by that time he had a freakishly funny point of view of his life. His two failed marriages gave him an alternative and hysterical definition of "soul mates." Moreno's comedy touches on his personal life and insecurities resulting in a funny intelligent analytical view of how growing up in the 80's molded him to be the carefree nonchalant and laid back adult he is today.

Martin was featured on Gabriel Iglesias' multi platinum selling DVDs "Hot and Fluffy" and "I'm Not Fat I'm Fluffy " and was part of the nationwide comedy tour The Fluffy Shop which sold over 122 000 tickets in over 70 cities across North America.
