“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.
