Cristela Alonzo made TV history by being the first Latina to create, produce and star in a network TV sitcom, "Cristela." Cristela stars as Cruz Ramirez in Disney Pixar's hit movie, "Cars 3."
Her first hour-long stand-up special, "Lower Classy" is currently streaming on Netflix.
Cristela also made her feature film debut in the "Angry Birds" movie and was a frequent guest co-host of The View. In 2015, she released "Some of the Hits," her first stand-up CD through Comedy Central.
She's performed at numerous festivals ranging from the Melbourne Comedy Festival, the Bonnaroo Music Festival and is a favorite at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal.
Also, fun fact: Cristela performed in numerous theater productions ranging from West Side Story to the other two shows that have a Latina role (can you tell I'm writing this in third-person?).
Cristela is based in LA and when not on tour, can be found performing at various clubs around town, including her home club, the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, CA. She is currently writing her first book to be released in 2018 by Simon & Schuster.
