You’ve seen Emmy-winning, Cuban-born, Miami-raised comedian Yamil Piedra on “Last Comic Standing,” BET’s “Comic View,” Rana Furniture TV commercials and during Miami Heat games. Now see him back on stage this Saturday to present his very loftily titled holiday show, “Yamil Piedra’s Very Special Christmas Comedy Special starring Yamil Piedra.”
The comedian has been on the scene in Miami for almost a decade, bringing audiences his mash-up shows that combine stand-up, sketch comedy, videos and audience participation. Piedra is also Internet famous: He and his former partner in crime Johnny Trabanco made a cyber splash with their videos “Gayo” and “Gaytorade” (even Tosh.0 was a fan) plus he’s the host of South Florida Ford’s webseries “The To Do List.” He is also getting cyber chuckles with his latest parody of Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” panning the technologically challenged in “Cellphone Ding.”
