Born in the Philippines and raised in California, JR De Guzman began performing comedy while working as a music teacher, which he quickly learned just meant teaching Taylor Swift songs to teenagers. He has entertained all over the world, having performed in Japan, Indonesia, Amsterdam, Canada, and countless other international shows. Combining music and comedy, JR serenades the audience into laughter with songs, jokes, and stories of traveling the world, life after college, and family. He recently gained notoriety winning the 13th Annual Standup NBC showcase & appearing with Kevin Hart on Comedy Central’s “Hart of the City.” And if you, like everyone, have a Netflix account, you can check out JR’s debut quarter hour special, released Summer 2018.

JR was awesome! This was the first time in a while since a comedian made our whole student body jump up and down in laughter. He had a great personality from the moment he arrived until he left. We were very happy to have him and definitely look forward to working with you again! He was definitely an A+!
