Edd Rivera is from the beautiful city of Tonala in the mighty state of Jalisco, Mexico. Growing up in what some might call a very hostile environment (or for Mexicans, any given Wednesday), Edd found comedy to be a relief (read: coping mechanism) for him and his loved ones. Edd has shared the stage with top comedians in Guadalajara, Reno and San Francisco, and been performing his debut solo show “A Mexican Without Borders / Ese Wey Parece Isleño 2.0” in both English and Spanish to sold-out audiences in Auckland, Waiheke Island, Tauranga and Wellington, as well as at festivals such as Mexfestival and Sudaka Festival.
