MONROK is synonymous with one word and one word only, MONROK. She has appeared on shows like Last Comic Standing, Latino 101, and recently shot the pilot Naked but Funny for Fox. She won California's Funniest Female Contest in 2009 and performed in the 2010 CBS Diversity Sketch Comedy Showcase. She has also won the Laugh Factory's Fresh Faces show and hosted Diversity Night at the Laugh Factory.
Instead of taking the safe route and talking about everyday problems such as dating and relationships, MONROK's natural irritation for life brings a whole new brand of comedy to the stage. Her comedy may be dry, but it is nothing you have seen before, or will probably ever see again, because you can't copy the way someone thinks, and that's exactly what it is. It's not a character, a bit, or an act, it's just MONROK.
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
