Biography

Winner of the funniest comic in Connecticut!

A 12 year veteran of comedy in the New York city clubs she says, “I’m truly energized with what I do and that excitement that goes on exactly in the moment between myself and my audience!, ”Peaches, her real name, Mariette, got her start in show business as a BREAK-dancer in feature films like “Beat Street” and numerous music videos and turned to comedy only after an injury forced her out of dancing.

In the late 90’s Rodriguez joined an Improv group and also took comedy classes. Eventually, she decided to embark on a full time career as a stand-up comic. Using her past experience as a dancer, Rodriguez re-funneled that crazy energy into comedy, which has proven to work very well for her. She quickly became one of the most popular comics in New York City and has been featured in Festivals and become hugely popular with Colleges as well. I never thought that anything I was doing onstage would ever be relevant to kids of college age, but recently I played SUNY Purchase in upstate NY and got a standing ovation!
Somehow what I’ve been doing seems to resonate with young audiences. Maybe it’s because what I’m doing just cuts right through to the absolute truth! and they recognize it immediately and love it.

A while back Dave Chapelle said, “Man, you’re really funny! You better keep performing cause there are not many Latinas that do what you do!”

That made me really proud coming from him. Indeed she has done well on this advice. In addition to appearing at various comedy clubs all along the north east coast, Peaches has also been well received overseas. A few summers ago she traveled to the Middle East where she volunteered for the USO comedy tour to support our troops. She helped keep our troops in good spirits by spreading her laughter throughout Afghanistan, Quatar, Pakistan,and Saudi Arabia.

Some of Peaches’ inspirations have come from comedians such as Dave Chappell,Chris Rock,Freddie Prinze Classic SNL ,Mad TV, and not to mention HBO’s brilliant “Curb your enthusiasm”.
