Description

Darren Carter

Originally from Fresno, California, Darren Carter started performing stand-up comedy at the country music bars and comedy clubs in the area while still in college. He moved to San Diego, California, for a couple of years, performing at the comedy clubs there, then made the leap to Los Angeles. He has appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” BET network’s “Comic View” (several times), and was a regular player on BET’s variety show “The Way We Do It.” Other TV credits include Galavision’s popular show “Que Locos,” Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and Showtime’s “Latino Laugh Festival.” Carter has also appeared in the films “Uncle P” and “Be Cool” with John Travolta.

DJ Cooch

Equally at home in the dance hall behind the turntables or behind the microphone at a comedy club, there seems to be no limit to the talent of this versatile performer. For over a decade, Jorge Aldama (aka DJ Cooch) has been performing on the west coast as a DJ/remixer. He quickly went from backyard parties to hyping thousands at desert raves and different venues threw out the country, celebrity parties, awards shows, concerts, Universal Citywalk’s New Year’s Eve Celebration, and even his own show for two years on Citywalk known as the Latino Dance Party (with the now-defunct partnership Cooch and Xavier). At many of these events, Cooch was not only spinning; he was also the show’s host. This skill, in addition to being fluent in English, Spanish and French, landed him many hosting gigs, such as Rock the Vote 2001 with cohost Ashton Kutcher, host and opening act for Latino superstar Juan Gabriel in concert at Universal Studios Hollywood and many other events such as these throughout the country. Cooch finally made his stand-up debut in 2004 at the Improv in Ontario, decimating a full house with a hilarious routine that had audiences and industry insiders buzzing about this super rookie. Since then, he has been getting big laughs in comedy clubs all over the country. He has shared the stage with such comedic heavyweights as Carlos Mencia, Pablo Francisco, Jeff Garcia, Steve Trevino and many more.
