I’m a Peruvian comedian/writer based in Washington DC. My one-person comedy show ‘Acuña Acuna’ had a sold out run at the Capital Fringe and it was voted ‘Best Solo Performance’ and ‘Best of Fringe’. The show was a finalist at the Yes, And… Laughter Lab in partnership with Comedy Central. I’m also a founding member and writer of ‘The Cherry Swamp’, a Washington DC based satire site.
I teach and perform improv and sketch comedy at Washington Improv Theater, Dojo Comedy, and Will Hines’ World’s Greatest Improv School. I’ve also taught workshops and performed in comedy festivals in over 20 cities around the US, Latin-America and Europe.
Acuña Acuna’ is a one person comedy show (monologues, sketches and songs) based on my real life as a Peruvian Latino living in America.
The show had a sold out run at the 2019 Capital Fringe Festival and it was voted as ‘Best Solo Performance’ and ‘Best of Fringe’. It was also reviewed by NPR, the Washington Post, DCist and Broadway World as one of the “must see” shows. The show was also a finalist at the Yes, And… Laughter Lab in partnership with Comedy Central.
In addition, it has been performed in festivals around Washington DC (Intersections Festival), NYC (Solocom), Philadelphia and Baltimore. In 2022 it’s scheduled to be performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Scotland.
