"DAMN! YOU ARE HARD! CORE!"

 

Common reaction to Dorian Vasquez has been a shake of the head with a belly laugh. Once during the Charm City Comedy Festival in Baltimore, a man exclaimed, "DAMN! YOU ARE HARD! CORE!" Born and raised in Inglewood, CA in the 90s, living among gangsters, revolutionaries, and punks, Dorian's sense of humor was bound to be a little off but it will definitely make you laugh.

Dorian hit the LA comedy scene in May 2012, moved to the Midwest in April 2013, and currently lives on the East Coast. After taking advice from comedian Stewart Huff, "If you're not willing to drive three hours for five minutes, you probably don't really want to do this," Dorian spent the last five years of his comedy career honing, performing, and driving. Thus far, he's gone through a Mitsubishi, a Toyota, and TWO Kias for comedy; that is dedication!

Dorian has performed across the US and Canada, working with nationally touring acts, like Chad Daniels, Aries Spears, and Dan Cummins. He’s performed on festivals like the Cleveland Comedy Festival, Gilda’s LaughFest, and the Burbank Comedy Festival. In Los Angeles, Dorian founded the Balderdash Comedy Troupe; in Ohio, he hosted and produced a number of shows, including Deep Space Standup, and The Dark and Dirty Show. His standup shots have been featured on The Chive and has been a guest on a a number of podcasts including Satanic Love, and Let the Hate Flow Through.
