A product of the streets of East Los Angeles, FELIPE ESPARZA is a comedian and actor, best known for his raw, real-life comedy that audiences everywhere can relate to. Recognized for his wild hair and his often-imitated phrase, "what's up, fool?", people are surprised to find out that Felipe is also the same person referred to and imitated in infamous stories by fellow comedian, Gabriel Iglesias. In addition to performing his live stand-up in venues worldwide, Felipe hosts a weekly podcast on the All Things Comedy Network called "What's Up Fool?" that focuses on interesting stories from just about anybody. Felipe believes everyone has a story to tell about how they got where they are, no matter who they are. Recently, Felipe produced his second hour-long stand-up special with his wife Lesa, entitled "Translate This", which premiered on HBO in the Fall of 2017.

Teo González nació el 28 de Octubre de 1960 en la ciudad de León, Guanajuato, México. Es un popular comediante mexicano que hace presentaciones personales en teatros, auditorios y palenques, televisión y radio. Para muchos es considerado como el mejor comediante de México.

A la corta edad de 5 meses de nacido, falleció su madre, Antonia, por lo cual su abuela materna se hizo cargo de su crianza. Es católico practicante. Siendo joven fue tercer portero de fútbol soccer en el Club León de la Primera División Mexicana. El hacía reír a sus compañeros durante los entrenamientos y durante las giras del equipo de fútbol. En una reunión que tuvo con sus compañeros en un centro nocturno lo convencieron de subir al escenario para que contara algunos de sus chistes ya populares dentro del club de fútbol. A partir de ese momento mantuvo entretenidos tanto a sus compañeros como a la clientela del lugar. En días posteriores, el propietario del lugar lo contactó para ofrecerle trabajo como comediante. Fue el detonante para que se dedicara de lleno al mundo de la comedia.
