If you ask Ernie G what he does for a living, he’ll tell you he is an empowerment comedian. This professional stand up encourages Latino youth to pursue their dreams and love themselves. But that isn’t what he set out to do originally.
We hear directly from the man himself about how he found his path. And why Latinos should embrace the “ghetto” in themselves.
Ernie G’s comedy has been seen by millions on TV shows such as Comedy Central’s
“Make Me Laugh,” B.E.T.’s “Comic View,” Ed McMahon’s
“Next Big Star,” & Sí TV’s “Funny is Funny!” He is one of the original stars of Galavisión’s hit show “Qué Locos!” hosted by George Lopez, along with appearances on HBO Latino’s “Habla Again,” MUN2’s “La Chicas Project,” as well as Sí TV’s “Latino Laugh Festival!” and their hip new show, “Inside Joke!” Many Angelenos remember him as “The Angry Angeleno” from the Ch.13 News, and a Feature Reporter for “Fox Good Day LA!” in Los Angeles.
Ernie has spoken to well over 100,000 Middle School, High School & College Students in over 30 states throughout the country. He has served as the Key Note Speaker at numerous University & H.S. Graduations, including UCLA’s RAZA Graduation, and continues to spread his message of Transformation through Laughter as a National Youth Speaker for the Hispanic Scholarship Fund! He is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University with his B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Chicano Studies.
