Luz Michelle

Stand-Up Comedian and Story teller in New York

Part Colombian & part Native-Indian Luz Michelle was born in Bogota, Colombia but adopted by two Eastern European Jews and raised in the forgotten borough - with the second biggest dump in the world - that is affectionately referred to as "Heroin Island," Staten Island, New York. Luz has channelled this unique experience and background into a successful comedy career, gracing stages with her malapropisms and unique style at marquis venues such as Caroline's, The Stand, Dangerfield's, Lucy's Laugh Lounge and others throughout the Tri-State Area. She has also appeared on GMA, SXSW, NYC Comedy Festival and was the storyteller winner at Gotham Comedy Club.

Luz is also the CEO/Founder of Hard Headed Comedy™, a comedy entertainment company that produces both live and streamed showcases featuring established and up-and-coming comedic talent. Since March 2020 Luz has been producing Still Standing Monologues, a weekly live-streamed comedy show and a talk show called Talk It Out Tuesday. Her main goal is to give her colleagues a chance to hone their craft and deliver medicine - aka Laughter - to the masses during the pandemic.
