May 31 - June 1, 2013
Bill Santiago is the first born of at least four children. He became a standup after narrowly escaping a career in journalism, facing the fact that as a comedian he was funny, but as a reporter he was a joke. It’s been said he was born to Puerto Rican immigrants, which is technically untrue, as Puerto Ricans are US citizens. Although, he’s got an uncle who was once deported to the Bronx. While connecting solidly with his Latino fans, Santiago is just as as popular for his straight ahead mainstream material, reminiscent of George Carlin, and showcasing Santiago's journalistic roots, obsessions with language, and keen insights on everything from Current Events to Cats to Religion to Facebook. With the premiere of his first television special, “Comedy Central Presents: Bill Santiago,” he won over fans nationwide with his dead-on observations about Spanglish – “twice the vocabulary, half the grammar!” and his beloved catchphrase “¡Porque Because!” Which led to his first book, "Pardon My Spanglish" - the first humor book in Spanglish actually written in Spanglish all the way through (Available on Amazon). Santiago's second half-hour special for Showtime airs in 2011. Other credits include: Craig Ferguson, Conan O'brien, Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Chelsea Lately, Good Morning America Now, ABC news, NBC TV Visiones, BBC World. NPR’s Latino USA.
