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 the invitation-only 2014 Joker's Ball in Indonesia, the 2015 Badaboom Comedy Series in Amsterdam, and the 2015 Edmonton Comedy Festival. He performed with Margaret Cho, and even let her borrow his guitar. He hasn't washed his guitar since. Combining music and comedy, JR serenades the audience into laughter with songs, jokes, and stories of traveling the world, life after college, and family. Recently, he won Stand-Up NBC 2016, appeared on Comedy Central's Kevin Hart Presents: Hart of the City, and MTV's Acting Out. Check out his debut album Dual Citizen which released at #1 on iTunes and Billboard.

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+!
