Born in Mexico, and raised in Los Angeles, a lot of Jose's sense of humor comes from the fact that he is suffering from one hell of an identity crisis. Is he Mexican? Is he American? Is he funny? Maybe only some of these things.
The rest of his humor comes from the fact that he's also a university English professor. Jose teaches rhetoric and composition at California State University at Northridge. He obtained both a bachelor's and master's degree from CSUN's English Program, and is currently a part-time lecturer, which means he has a lot of free time on his hands.
In Los Angeles, Jose has integrated himself in the local comedy scene, and can be seen working his money maker in comedy venues across town, co-hosting one of the hottest indie comedy shows in L.A., "The Nine Drink Minimum with Jose and Delanie," as well as forming one part of the Funny Teachers in the up and coming Funny Teachers Comedy Tour.
"Es mucho funny."
