Latin Comedy Jam
George Lopez refered to Gilbert as one of the "elite" Latino comedians working today!
As a kid, Gilbert used to travel across the country to work with his parents in the
migrant fields. Now he travels the country to perform for a range of audiences
including: colleges, comedy clubs, churches, prisons, and the Las Vegas Strip.
TV credits include "Que Locos," ABC's "Laugh Out Loud," BET's "Comic View,"
and on the dvd "Thou Shalt Laugh".
Johnny Sanchez is one of America's premiere comedians. Johnny was a cast member on FOX's hit sketch comedy series MADtv for the show's last two seasons. Most notably with his fan favorite character, "Lil Joker." His other TV appearances include an HBO Comedy Showcase, The Late Late Show on CBS, Comics Unleashed on ABC, the USO Comedy Tour and his own Half Hour Special on Comedy Central. He was also one of only a handful of comedians personally chosen by George Lopez to appear on Lopez Tonight.
Johnny also lent his voice to the Oscar Winning Animated film Happy Feet as Lombardo, alongside Robin Williams and Elijah Wood. He spent three weeks in Sydney, Australia working on and reprising his role in Happy Feet Two, which has added such stars as Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Hank Azaria and Sophia Vegara. And he finished up 2011 by being cast as one of the lead characters, hilariously named Quesadilla, in the independent comedy film Taco Shop.
A 20-year comedy veteran, never shys away from a challenge. Willie’s talent has
garnered him 12 appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” more than any other Latino Comedian in the history of the Tonight Show. Jay even invited Willie to perform for the troops in Afghanistan. Barcena helped provide much-needed laughter to that part of the world. Willie’s numerous jobs prepared him for his comedy career. His security guard, plumber, roofer, and limo driver gigs gave him a background for his humor about everyday life. After years of stand-up road work Willie is now ready for new challenges.
In addition to being a comedy road warrior, Willie has appeared on many TV shows including: “Moesha,” “The Wayans Brothers,” and he was chosen to be the host of the popular Si-Tv production “Latino Laugh Festival – The Show.” He’s also made multiple appearances on tours such as “Que Locos,” “Latino Laugh Festival,” “Montreal’s Just for Laughs,” and “Crown Royal Latin All Stars Comedy Explosion.” Willie had his one hour Comedy Central which was received with rave reviews. Though, Willie's most recent one hour Showtime special was received even better reviews.
