Angel Salazar is not your typical comedian. His Cuban/Puerto Rican heritage and penchant for sporting mini-skirts notwithstanding, this manic, human laugh factory is rather difficult to describe. Salazar's performance is a mixture of street-smart ethnic wisecracks, risque humor, physical comedy, and audience involvement. Angel is also an established actor, who has appeared in films such as "Scarface," "Punchline," "Carlito's Way," and "Where the Buffalo Roam." He was also featured in Cheech and Chong's comedy video "Born in East L.A." He has headlined at The Comedy Store in L.A., The Dunes Hotel in Las Vegas, Catch a Rising Star in New York City, and The Tropicana Hotel in Atlantic City.
