Rudy Moreno was born and raised in the tight-knit community of Lincoln Heights, a suburb of Los Angeles. Rudy began his career at 13 in garage bands with friends in his neighborhood. He attended Lincoln High School and graduated at 16 years old.
Rudy went on to broadcasting school with a dream to work in radio. After several audition tapes, he received a call from a station in Santa Maria, California, where he worked the weekend shift. Rudy continued to pursue his dream of broadcasting with stints in Santa Paula and then as an intern at LA radio station KLOS.
Rudy then worked in nightclubs as a DJ and did the typical DJ work at parties, social gatherings, and weddings. Eventually, Rudy got married and decided to do the 9 to 5 thing, and in 1991 was approached by band leader Rudy Salas of the famed rock group Tierra. "He said that I was so funny that I should be a comedian, and if I wanted to, he would help me and let me open for the band," which they did, and after that, it just snowballed.
By the summer of 1991, Rudy was approached by TV Producer Jeff Valdez, who booked Rudy for his first TV appearance on Comedy Compadres. Since then, Rudy has appeared on over 40 television shows in his current career, including Jimmy Kimmell, Criminal Minds, Everybody Loves Raymond, Arrested Development, and shows on NBC, CBS, ABC, Starz, HBO, and Showtime.
Besides TV, Rudy continues to open concerts for stars like Smokey Robinson, Black Eyed Peas, Bobby Caldwell, Los Lobos, Natalie Cole, and many more.
Rudy has been a National Headlining Comedian for over 30 years with shows in Las Vegas, New York, and Los Angeles and has worked at all of the A-List Comedy Clubs across the country. He has the longest-running show in Los Angles at the Ice House in Pasadena, spanning 20 consecutive years.
Rudy is also an accomplished guitar player and has a working classic rock band.
Rudy and his family are the creators of Komics for Kids, an annual fundraising event to help inner-city children.
So whether it be broadcasting on the radio, doing stand-up, acting on TV or theater, or just rocking out with his band, Rudy will entertain you. Otherwise, he'll have to go back to that boring job as a bikini model.
