Glory Magaña:

Glory Magaña was born to entertain! As the youngest of 15 there was never a dull moment or a night without an audience! Glory started her career in 2012 and first performed at The Purple Onion in San Francisco, CA, the same stage where Phyllis Diller, Woody Allen, and Richard Pryor paved their ways to fame. She made her way around the Bay Area performing at Cobb’s Comedy, San Francisco Punchline, Tommy Ts in Pleasanton, and the Sacramento Punchline. She then performed in Los Angeles at the Icehouse in Pasadena (finally headlining this year!), the Laugh Factory in Long Beach and Hollywood, and The Comedy Store. Glory has since performed across the U.S and Mexico. You’ll be sure to have fun watching her animated presence on stage!

Featuring Comedians:

Stevona Delgado:

Some of us blaze a trail, but she used her talents to pave a road to superstardom. Stevona Delgado has always been able to entertain a crowd when the lights are at their brightest. After years of inquiring interest, the Southern Califonia native would begin to pursue a career as a stand-up comedian in the 2020s. Known for her electric presence and brash story-telling, Stevona became a natural talent after her first night on stage. She quickly garnered popularity by developing hilarious viral videos. She became a highly sought-after performer for high-profile comedy shows at famous comedy clubs, including the HaHa Comedy Club, The Stand-Up Comedy Club, The Laugh Factory, and The Comedy Chateau. Considered by many as a future headlining star, Delgado has been a featured act for many notable comedians, including Momo Rodriguez, Paul Rodriguez, J Valentino, Natalie Friedman, and Jay Washington.

Ilina Cortes:

Ilina Cortes demanded immediate recognition after pulling the mic from the stand almost immediately. The Modesto, CA native stormed onto the Southern California scene with both quick wit and a style of comedy that’s true to who she is. Cortes is already performing at major clubs throughout So Cal, including Flappers Comedy Club. Make sure to watch Ilina as an up-and-coming comedian, as she is as funny as she is hungry.

Serena Gamboa:

A Northern California native, Serena Gamboa has quickly become one of the most enjoyable attractions in California comedy. Serena has opened many comedic legends, including Ellis Rodriguez, Mario Hodge, and Nick Larson. A two-time Modesto Area Music Awards winner, Gamboa has had unforgettable performances up and down the West Coast, and it’s only a matter of time before she’s performing on some of the biggest stages in the world.

Lulu Ayon:

After being told, “You’re funny, but not funny enough for stand-up,” Lourdes Ayon jumped into the art of stand-up comedy. Born in Tijuana, MX, she moved to San Diego, CA, with her family when she was 11 and quickly learned how to speak English and understand American culture. Lourdes now lives in Sacramento but regularly performs across California and Oregon. She comes from a family of writers and musical performers and credits them for providing great comedic material and nonstop laughter. She brings infectious energy and undeniable charisma to the stage, keeping audiences entertained with personal stories about Mexican culture, the nuances of aging, and the complexities of family.

Vanessa Gonzalez:

Vanessa Gonzalez was named one of “Variety’s Top 10 Comics to Watch” in 2022 and “Best Stand Up Comic in Austin” by the Austin Chronicle in 2017, 2022 & 2023. She’s been featured on; TruTV’s “Laff Mobb’s Laff Tracks,” “Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents,” “A Little Late with Lilly Singh” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” You can currently catch her on “Entre Nos: Spot On” and “Comedy Chingonas” on HBO MAX, “This Joka” on the Roku Channel and “Verified Stand-Up” on Netflix.
