Mexican (Or Is He?) Comedian Martin Urbano Killed It On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

“I feel like some of you are having trouble believing me now…”

Stand-up comedian Martin Urbano took a risk during his late night debut appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Performing a wry, self-deprecating set that you’d more likely see at a comedy club than on a national TV show (where pleasing a ‘mainstream’ audience is usually the strategy), Urbano quickly won over the audience (and several YouTube commenters). Urbano, who grew up in Brownsville, Texas and is now based in New York, covered lots of ground quickly, ending with a 3D glasses joke that is both simple and brilliant. So how did Urbano, an up-and-coming comic, score a gig on Jimmy Kimmel’s show? According to the Brownsville Herald, Kimmel watched a tape of one of Urbano’s sets, and that was enough for him to invite Urbano on the show. Based on this performance, it looks like Urbano has earned a return invite on the show.

Mexican Sideline Reporter Sergio Dipp Screwed Up A Bit And Twitter Went Wild

Monday Night Football / ESPN

Meet Sergio Dipp.

The 29-year-old Mexicali, Baja California native is a reporter for ESPN in Mexico.

Last night, Dipp was a sideline reporter for the English-language broadcast of the ‘Monday Night Football’ game between the Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Chargers. Dipp’s appearance was inadvertently memorable:

“Here on the field, from up close, just watching… coach Vance Joseph… from here… you watch him now on the screen.”

Yeouch!

While some instantly questioned who allowed Dipp to step on the sideline…

Others were concerned for his safety.

This guy totally empathized with the young reporter.

And everyone else, it seems, couldn’t get enough.

Was he nervous? Was he working from a wonky teleprompter? Who knows.

Ah, it’s been a while since we’ve seen the “I like turtles!” kid

But his performance was memorable enough that someone nominated him for a new gig.

If you’re a fan of Mexican soccer, Dipp may look familiar. He’s the same reporter who made a Super Bowl bet with Mexican fútbol star Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez earlier this year.

Chicharito picked the Atlanta Falcons to win, and you know how that went…

Best of all, Dipp appeared to maintain his sense of humor after the gaffe:

Chances are that Dipp saw he was trending during the game, but didn’t have time to see why he was trending.

Hours after the game, though, Dipp posted a solemn video message addressing his appearance:

Even his friend, Chicharito, tweeted out words of support:

“Remember that there’s more good people out there, those who are happy with everything that happens to us. Me on the field and you in front of the microphone realizing our dreams and finding our happiness,” wrote Chicharito.
