First Latina to Create, Produce, and Star in a Network TV Sitcom, Cristela
Author of Music to My Years: A Mixtape-Memoir of Growing Up and Standing Up
Cristela Alonzo uses humor to shine a light on the issues of today, and makes us laugh while she opens our eyes. As a standup comedian, podcaster, humorist, and writer of books and tv shows, Cristela spreads the funny around.
Cristela made history in 2014 when she became the first Latina to create, produce and star in her own network sitcom, Cristela for ABC. During that same year, she split her time between LA and NYC to serve as one of ABC’s favorite guest hosts on their hit daytime talk show The View. In 2017 Cristela made history again when she became the first Latina lead in a Disney Pixar film when she voiced the part of 'Cruz Ramirez' in Cars 3. Her first stand-up special, Lower Classy, is currently streaming on Netflix.
Cristela's memoir, Music to My Years: A Mixtape-Memoir of Growing Up and Standing Up, is a memoir full of humor and heart, in which Cristela shares personal stories of growing up as a first-generation Mexican-American in Texas and following her dreams to pursue a career in comedy.
Her podcast To Be Continued mixes sketch and social commentary in a conversation that never ends...thus the title: To Be Continued.
Aside from comedy, Cristela focuses on advocacy work, fighting for issues that range from immigration, universal healthcare and lower income communities with numerous organizations including Special Olympics Texas, People for the United Way, Planned Parenthood, LUPE (La Union del Pueblo Entero) and serves as advisory board member for Define American.
