About Comedy Hustle Chico
“I’m just an avid student of comedy and I love the passion, control and commitment it takes to become a great comedian.” Words spoken from a true comic at heart; making his mark in the comic era for over 8 years, CHICO has definitely helped push the comic scene into a new direction and has put his city on the map.Born and raised in Washington D.C., CHICO never would’ve imagined that he would become a comedian, but one incidence changed his views of life forever. Being critically wounded and hospitalized due to a gunshot wound in early 2001, he spent a lot of time in the hospital bed contemplating on his life changes and the path to take next. “I was watching an episode of Comic View on BET, and it hit me; these comics aren’t really all that, I can do that.” After recouping from his injury, he decided to put his actions to a test, and tried out comedy for the first time appearing at D.C.’s infamous Takoma Station nightclub. From then on, he knew that this was a career to embark on. CHICO began hosting Takoma Station weekly while working other gigs at other comedy venues in the D.C. area. Within 3 years, CHICO had already performed with D.C.’s best; such as Joe Clair and Red Grant just to name a few. He was blessed to be chosen to perform at Howard University’s Homecoming Comedy Show; then selected to appear on the second season of B.E.T Coming to the Stage, he’s also been featured outside of D.C. headlining at the Virginia House of Comedy, Richmond Funnybone and opening up for big music acts such as R&B singer Pleasure P (of Pretty Ricky) and soul music legends THE WHISPERS and the list goes on. Chico loves giving back to his communtiy hosting charity events such as Make-a-Wish. He is also a comedic writer who writes for several comedians in Washington D.C area.Currently, CHICO is still hosting and performing at venues worldwide, as well as writing and producing shows. He’s the lead writer for the sketch shows “DMV Comedy Sit Down” and “CHICOMENTARY,” and he’s one of the writers and commentators on “Reel Critics.” His future goals are to write for a wide range of comedians as well as for sitcoms. CHICO’s dogma is to “Always stay focused.”
