Felipe Esparza

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. Felipe won NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2010, and soon after, starred in and produced his first 1 hour Showtime special, and is now touring comedy clubs and theaters across the world and working on a new 1 hour special. He also launched a popular new podcast April 1, 2014, entitled, “What’s Up Fool?”, on the All Things Comedy podcast network.

Felipe also appeared in two advertising campaigns in 2014. The first was for Honda (the 2015 Honda Fit), where they created a campaign with Felipe in mind as the spokesperson. It was the first time Honda had created a campaign for the Fit targeted specifically to the Latino market. This campaign involved a heavy social media component and earned it a place in the top 5 Latino social media ad campaigns. Adweek also highlighted the ad for the way it targets Hispanic millennials by making fun of the way advertisers try to target Hispanic millennials. The second ad campaign launched during the fall of 2014 for Target Mobile services with three different, quirky, fast-paced commercials co-starring Felipe and Lauren Lapkus (from Orange Is the New Black).
