California born Julianna Loera Wiggins (she/her/ella) uses her experiences growing up as a small-town horse girl and Mex-Italian woman to craft her comedy with a bicultural twist. Don’t fall for her bangs and sunny disposition- when she’s not performing she’s either making tackles on the rugby pitch or watching her husband sweat when he eats mild salsa (¡Ay, pobrecito!). She has produced shows with Las Locas Comedy at the University of Illinois-Chicago and the University of Michigan to bring Latina/é laughter and representation to college campuses in the Midwest.
