Cristela Alonzo made TV history by being the first Latina to create, produce and star in a network TV sitcom, "Cristela," an achievement which caps a whirlwind year. She released "Some of the Hits," her first stand-up CD through Comedy Central, was a viewer favorite as a featured guest host on ABC's "The View" and made her feature film debut in the hit Angry Birds movie. She is also thrilled to release her first hour stand-up special "Lower Classy" on Netflix in January 2017.
She's performed at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, the Bonnaroo Music Festival and is a favorite at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. She also taped "The Half Hour," her first half-hour special in Boston, which premiered in June 2013 on Comedy Central.
Also, fun fact: Cristela performed in numerous theater productions ranging from West Side Story to the other two shows that have a Latina role (can you tell I'm writing this in third-person?).
Cristela is based in LA and when not on tour, can be found performing at various clubs around town, including her home club, the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, CA.
