About Che Guerrero
Che Guerrero has spent 16 years tackling race, marriage, and work through stand-up comedy. A revolutionary voice on the modern comedy scene, Che's style is rooted in his experiences growing up undocumented. His sense of humor and command of the stage is the result of obstacles often unseen by the average American.
In 2014, Che broke out on the New York scene with a feature on Gotham Comedy. He released his first album, “Thank You That's My Time” in 2016 and continued to hit every stage from The Hoboken Comedy Festival to The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. By 2018, Che was being highlighted on BET as part of 50 Central's “Artist Spotlight.”
Recently, Che was the recipient of the Latinx Creatives Grant from TikTok, which awarded him $50,000 and the chance to work with Eva Longoria’s team UnbeliEVAble.
While his album remains in constant rotation on Sirius XM, his “My Undocumented Ass” chronicles the lives and work of undocumented people of all backgrounds to illustrate the true fabric of the US.
