Chris Trovador

Festival Staff

As a Hispanic-American,  Chris Trovador noticed the comedy scene was severely lacking in diversity, which drove him into writing stories that reflected his personal experiences. In 2014, he was accepted into the prestigious Second City’s Director’s program and began directing his own theater productions. Chris would soon help create an improvisational group called “Spanglish” that has performed all over Los Angeles to New York City. This propelled them to produce a show called “Freshcobar”, a hilarious and Spanish influenced show that became The Second City’s first full Hispanic ensemble to hit their main stage. Currently, he is directing the house sketch team”Spice Rack” and continues to strive each year with a new set of goals that can help bring a diverse voice to the entertainment industry.
