Andres Parada’s life as a weirdo began by touring with folk bands across the U.S. In the tour van, he wrote cartoons, and one of those crazy ideas ended up being produced as a western short - Nickelodeon’s Tennis The Good Boy.
He now lives in Los Angeles, where he writes/performs on house teams at Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre (Harold, Maude, Characters). He is a recipient of the Groundlings/SNL Award, performs in Groundlings Sunday Company, and auditioned for America’s Got Talent as Papayaso The Chilean Clown. He also performs on the Pack Theater’s house sketch team, Gutter.
He produces tons of videos for his YouTube Channel, and is an anchor/writer for the satire news program The Daily Misinformer (400k followers).
Andres was raised in Tubac, Arizona - a tiny artists’ colony in the middle of the desert. He’s proud to be half Chilean, full idiot.
