Angel Rentas

I started stand up in 1982 to help pay for my college tuition. This was when I had hair, so you know that was a long time ago. My mother was a practicing Spanish bilingual Catholic that can make you feel “guilt” in 2 languages. In 1967 my family moved from Puerto Rico to Connecticut. , My comedy is based on my experiences growing up in a multicultural environment filled of colorful characters and the everyday silly observations of life.

After becoming a Nurse Practitioner in Cardiology I have helped raise over 20,000 dollars for different charity groups through comedy shows along with other healthcare providers.
