Raised in the urban city of Compton California Richard Villa always knew he wanted to make people laugh. After completing a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering Richard felt there was something more out there in stored for him. While driving home one night the neon lights of the Irvine Improv called his name. Hey Richard!
Seizing the moment of amateur night Richard grabbed the microphone went on stage and has not stopped since. Using stories of his childhood Richard Villa turned what he thought were basic experiences into autobiographical satirical humor that depict life for Latinos and other minorities in the United States. Amid his newfound talent in improvisation Richard was accepted to The Groundlings Theatre Group.
With his comedy and thorough understanding of his audience Richard Villa became the first Latino to ever host the renowned Hollywood Improv on Friday nights. Sharing the stage with various other talent such as Jeff Garcia Carlos Mancilla Gabriel Iglesia Mike Epps Orlando Jones and Dat Phan Richard Villa quickly took over co-host duties at the Ha-Ha in North Hollywood and the Ontario and Brea Improv.
