Ralph picked up the microphone for the first time in January of 2010 and has since been one of the hardest working comics in the L.A. comedy circuit.

Jerry Garcia is considered to be one of the fastest rising young Latino Comics in Los Angeles and quiet possibly the entire Latino Comic genre. Jerry has stormed his way into the National Comedy Scene and people cannot get enough of this smart-energetic-funny-funny man from Huntington Park, California. A single father of two boys Jerry allows us to come into his world and laugh histerically along with him as he tries to convice the audience with his witty puns on how he is the best father he can possibly be while spending the least amount of energy in doing so. His views on life, relationships, his modest upbringings and everyday struggles captivates the entire audience as the punchlines Jerry delivers which such charm and charisma keep coming non-stop hyesterically. Jerry's presence, strong delivery and likeability on stage help him connect and interact with audience members in the most memorable way, fans leave the showing embracing a new "funny friend"...by the end of his set you won't know what hit you but you will be begging for more!
Early 2016 Jerry was named Best Comedian in the San Diego Comedy Festival Contest, marking his first comedy contest win in a festival. Few weeks later, Jerry won his second comedy competition in as many tries as he took home LA's Funniest Comic Contest Headliner Division Championship. Jerry has performed in over a dozen states and completed his first world military tour in the Spring of 2015 when he joined the Armed Forces Entertainment. Jerry has been featured on various television shows such as LAUGHS, BiteSizeTV, and Stand-Up and Deliver.

Currently a featured member of the new Latin Comedy Jam Tour which he performs alongside comedians such as Paul Rodriguez, Johnny Sanchez and Steve Treviño, he's a regular on many comedy showcases, festivals and colleges around the country. For Jerry Garcia, the sky truly is his limit at this point, and fortunately for us, he's just getting started.
