“Raising your parents is hard. I worry about who my mom hangs out with…”
Stand-up comedian Jesus Trejo knows a thing or two about raising a pair of little bundles of joy. No, not babies. His parents. Trejo, who jokes that he is raising his parents, struggles with how much they behave like his children. Sometimes, though, he shares experiences with them the way a proud parent would. From doing all the things that they told him not to do, like staring at strangers, to pointing at people in the street, his parents are turning the tables on him. They sound like good folks with a good sense of humor, though. His dad made sure he realized living in their home was a gift, by gift-wrapping the walls on Christmas. He’s even found himself sitting across from his mom having the “I’m not angry, just disappointed” conversation. Trejo is a funny dude. He made it onto the 2016 Just for Laughs “New Faces” list, as well as Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch in 2017 list.
Check out more of Trejo’s stuff below in this clip from Comedy Central’s “Adam Devine’s House Party.”

“Saturday Night Live” writer and “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” correspondent Julio Torres was on deck this week to give last-minute Halloween costume ideas. The stand-up comedian, who goes by the title “Space Prince” and is fond of diamonds and crystals, was on hand to give Fallon some helpful advice. Torres is behind some of the most unique SNL sketches of the last couple of years, including “Wells for Boys,” “The Sink,” and the Lin-Manuel Miranda starring sketch “Diego Calls His Mom.”
In the video above, Torres’ costume suggestions get pretty abstract, from “The Lost City of Atlantis” to an “Email Forward from your Dad,” leaving Fallon both confused and gasping for air from laughter. It’s pretty brilliant stuff, and only something that could come from the mind of a crystal loving Space Prince. Watch the video above to ponder whether or not you want to be a “Secret” or a “Rumor” for Halloween.
