Comedy Manny Maldonada June 8

June 8, 2018 - Manny Maldonado was born in Modesto, CA, and raised in the small town of Ceres, CA. He worked odd jobs including as a dispatch supervisor for a medical supply company. As a dare from his friends he tried stand up comedy. The rest was history! He had no intentions on becoming a stand up comedian. "I had hopes and dreams. I’m a firm believer that stand up comedy picked me! The ability to make people laugh is such a thrill." Manny’s comedic style is best described as high energy, and no holding back. His unique ability to crossover to a mainstream audience is making him one of the hottest rising working comics today. Manny has worked with comedians Dave Attell, Dave Chappelle, and Tommy Davidson. In 2007-2008 he was selected to be on The New Latin Kings of Comedy Tour with comedy icon Paul Rodriguez. In 2010, along with Emmy award winning Actor Bryan Cranston, he performed for former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson. Manny performs at clubs, colleges, comedy clubs, theaters, and military overseas as well. Manny’s television credits include Comedy Central’s Comedy Rehab, ABC's Comics Unleashed, Comedy.TV, BET's ComicView, Starz' StaannDUP!, and Dr. Phil as a guest panelist. Manny was also chosen as a writer for 2012-2013 CBS Diversity Showcase. Manny Maldonado can currently be heard on SiriusXM Radio and Pandora Radio.
