Straight outta the Andes, there’s an unstoppable Peruvian volcano of comedy in the US and her name is Luz Pazos. Luz is on a tear, garnering a finalist spot on Stand Up NBC, featuring on the Kroll Show and Comedy Chingonas on HBOMAX; in addition to winning several comedy competitions like Best Peruvian Female Comic in The 90046 Area Code. She is fast becoming a darling of HBO Max (Comedy Chingonas;The Garcias), regularly performs at The Comedy Store, Improv, Laugh Factory, and many other top venues around the country. Luz also brings her act to festivals across North America such as Ha Comedy festival in San Antonio, SheDot in Toronto, Asheville Comedy Festival in North Carolina, SoCal’s Ventura Comedy Festival, and the All Jane Comedy Festival in Portland, Oregon. Yes, her accent is strong, but her jokes, comedy routines and ability make audiences from all over laugh, are much stronger!
Luz is a beauty queen (well former, very former…but don’t tell her that) and a serious and comedic actress of stage and telenovelas. She arrived in the US from Peru via Italy, where she obtained degrees in theater, literature and “men” that she will most likely never use (except for the ‘men’ part). Her love of wealthy men…I mean, stand up and air conditioning brought her to LA, where she has been cracking up crowds with her unapologetic skewering of American culture to great acclaim. Though her experiences living on different continents have given her a broadened world view, she has never lost sight of what’s personal, real and the really annoying… making her stand up relatable and hilarious. When she’s not rocking crowds, she enjoys life’s simple pleasures like boxing llamas, eating stuffed guinea pig, and tennis.
