Cristela Alonzo made history when she became the first Latina to create, produce and star in her own network sitcom, Cristela for ABC. During that same year, she served as one of ABC’s favorite guest hosts on their hit daytime talk show, The View.
Cristela established herself in the stand-up world with her half hour special for Comedy Central and numerous appearances on Conan, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. She was also one of the most requested comedians of all time in the college market, booking over 300 shows across the U.S. in three years. Cristela has topped multiple comedy power player lists including Variety's “Top 10 Comics to Watch," LA Weekly’s "Top 10 Comedy Acts to Watch", Time Out's "Comics to Watch," and Vulture’s "One of the 50 Comedians You Should and WILL Know.”
Most recently, Cristela made her motion picture debut in Sony Pictures’ new film Angry Birds. Later this fall she is set to tape her first one-hour stand-up special for Netflix.
