Andres Parada is a writer/actor from Tubac, Arizona (a tiny artists’ colony near the Mexican border.) He was recently on America’s Got Talent as Papayaso The Chilean Clown, where Howie Mandel called him the best impressionist he’s ever heard, and Simon Cowell called him "The only funny clown." He also created a short animated western for Nickelodeon called Tennis The Good Boy, for which he also composed the score.
When he’s not at Groundlings, you can catch him performing at UCB on Harold team Headbutt, and Maude team Trainwreck. And if he’s not there, he’s probably playing clawhammer banjo in his bedroom. He dedicates his comedy to his wonderful mother, and the memory of his father.
