Ralph Figueroa, was born in Los Angeles and was raised in La Puente, CA by two very hard working parents. This half-Mexican, half-Salvadoran, U.S. Army veteran joined the military at the age of 17 and proudly served his country for 12 years! During his stint in the military, he also found time to attend college at Cal State Long Beach, UCLA and Cal Poly Pomona, eventually becoming a 2nd grade teacher.
Ralph picked up the microphone for the first time in January of 2010 and has since been one of the hardest working comics in the SoCal comedy circuit. He’s worked at various venues throughout Southern and Northern California…from San Diego to Sacramento and everywhere in between. Ralph has been featured at The Ha Ha Cafe, Sacramento Punchline, The Ice House, The Laugh Factory and the Brea, Ontario, Irvine, San Jose and Hollywood Improv’s opening for some of the biggest names in comedy today. He also lends his talents to help raise money for many charitable foundations such as “Toys for Tots”, the “American Cancer Society”, “The Silver & Black Angel Foundation” and the “Vet Hunters Project” who’s goal is to get homeless veterans off the street.
Ralph has risen quickly through the comedy ranks due to his comedic story telling with attention to detail that will have you laughing out loud. He aspires to someday headline a comedy special of his own and will succeed through his work ethic and perseverance. Once you hear Ralph, you’ll see why he’s one of the hottest up and coming stand-up comedians around!
