Jesús Sepúlveda, one of the fastest rising young Latino stand-up comedians in Los Angeles, is gearing up for the premiere of his new stand up special on Entre Nos with Mr. Tough Life.

In this special, recorded at Chelsea Music Hall, Sepúlveda shares how — thanks to his own experiences with a tough father and even tougher therapist — he was able to understand why Latinos love parties and distrust therapy.

Mr. Tough Life (2022) is one of eight stand-up comedy specials that will air on HBO Latino and also stream on HBO Max. The others are: Frankie Quiñones: Superhomies (2021), Nick Guerra: Love Me at My Worst (2020), Shayla Rivera: It's Not Rocket Science (2020), Jerry García: It's Not My End of Week (2019), Gina Brillon: Easily Offended (2019), Erik Rivera: Super White (2019), and Orlando Leyba: Adorable (2018).

Before Mr. Tough Life, Sepúlveda appeared on Entre Nos: The Series (2018) alongside Ramón Rivas, Gina Brillon and Nick Guerra. Other episodes available in the Entre Nos collection include Carmen and Alfred (2022), The Winners 2 (2021), What She Said (2021), LA Meets NY (2020), The Winners ( 2020), About Last Night (2019), Spot On (2019), Part 4 (2018), Part 3 (2018), Part 2 (2017) and Part 1 (2017 ) .

The new stand-up comedy special Mr. Tough Life will premiere on Friday, Aug. 5.

He is one of the youngest Latino comedians on the Los Angeles comedy scene. From a very young age, Jesés showed a natural talent for making people laugh. When he was only 15 years old, he began to perfect his performance and has not left the stage since.

In 2015, Jesús was selected as one of eight finalists for the NBC Diversity Showcase, a competition featuring thousands of comedians from across the United States. In 2017, he appeared in Chingo Bling's Netflix special They Can't Deport Us All and HBO's stand-up comedy special Entre Nos.

Throughout his career, Sepúlveda performed in several iconic venues in the U.S., such as The Comedy Store, The Laugh Factory, Ice House in Pasadena, Chelsea Music Hall, The Stand NYC, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, and Broadway Comedy Club. .

In his performances, Jesús tries to give a perspective on the Latino culture, and also recounts his childhood stories.
