Too lazy to shoot hoops and too tall to model, Marcella Arguello stands over 6 feet. Although she may be taller than most men, the only thing more intimidating than her height is her comedy. Marcella mixes a combination of genuine reason with a sexy suggestion of street. Deemed as “sexually and ethnically ambiguous” she appeals to everyone and is not afraid to tell you how she really feels about subjects concerning race, gender, politic, relationships, family, work, music, pop culture and whatever else is on her mind that day.

Time Out Magazine deemed Marcella an “LA Comedian to Watch in 2017” and is a fan favorite on Comedy Central’s @midnight. Currently, she is writing on the James Corden spin-off show Drop The Mic coming to TBS Spring 2017. She won her appearance on TruTv’s Comedy Knock Out and can be seen on The UCB Show on Seeso. Marcella was featured on Viceland’s Flophouse, and in 2015 on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly; her stand up has been highlighted on rapper Tyler, The Creator’s mobile app and on Fox’s The Real. Her Twitter account (@marcellacomedy) has been featured on CNN,, and various entertainment websites. 

She has worked at The Improv Comedy Clubs all over the country and is a regular at The Punch Line Comedy Clubs in Northern California. She has performed at San Francisco Sketchfest, Riot LA Comedy Festival, overseas for American troops and comedian Sean Keane referred to her as the “finest export from Modesto since George Lucas.” For more information click here.

Some a mixture of both, as life tends to be.  Every human is a library, filled with adventures to share.  Join us for tales told by a murderer's row of special guests.
