Comedian Edwin San Juan? Never heard of him. But after seeing this DVD I know YOU will, as this Filipino comedian will soon be a household name! I had the good fortune of seeing his DVD and I was extremely impressed. While the production was slightly lacking, the humor wasn't. Edwin's take on his family and the Filipino community is hysterical. I was almost on my back as his style of comedy is old school, as a guy who tells funny stories about his upbringing, his family and his friends. If you have seen him before, it was the following- as he has performed on BET's COMIC VIEW or Showtime’s THE LATINO LAUGH FESTIVAL. And he has performed his stand up routine at comedy clubs like the IMPROV, THE COMEDY STORE, THE COMIC STRIP and THE LAUGH FACTORY. Edwin’s DVD can be found on his website for sale at www.edwinsanjuan.net. The DVD was produced by Monkey’s Uncle Productions. Pass it on! Now You know the truth! - The Humor Mill


To kick off the first night of Homecoming week, ASPB showcased three comedy acts: the first involving black comedian Bruce Jingles whose hilarious rendition of Samuel L. Jackson had the crowd in stitches, the second featured Filipino comedian Edwin San Juan who garnered the loudest approval from the audience, and featured Jeff Garcia as the headliner, who does voice work for the cartoon "Jimmy Neutron."

The second act featured San Juan, a self-proclaimed 36-year-old who still lives at home with his parents. He had the entire audience busting up with laughter at his many antics involving an imitation of how old Flipinos all look alike and a show he would like to see up on the television, "Queer Factor," where gay men must act straight to win the cash prize at the end. Along with the comedian acts, there was a very vocal audience member in the back of the audience who shouted out every now and then, "let me smoke you out!" This just fit in with the theme of San Juan's act as he talked to the audience about why marijuana is better for people than other drugs since it is impossible to over dose on it. Time magazine has an article which states, in order for a person to overdose on marijuana they must smoke 900 joints in 24 hours.
