A tornado of sarcastic anecdotes, personal storytelling and physical punch lines, Nery Saenz is a comedian everyone can relate to. Whether this Miami-based ball of energy is recounting failed first dates or childhood playground antics, his style of comedy will keep you reeling with laughter as you recall your own similar experiences.
The youngest of four siblings in a Nicaraguan-American family, Nery grew up watching his idols – Eddie Murphy and George Carlin – performing on stage, and that spurred his desire to pursue a career in comedy. As a child his imagination ran wild. He was always the class clown, imitating movie characters and staging his own “Blood Sport” tournaments in his bed room.
Nery got his start in comedy when he entered a local Open Mic contest in his hometown and made it to the finals. His love of comedy and desire to make people laugh were cemented and he worked tirelessly to pursue his dream.
His hard work and dedication have made him a favorite at colleges and comedy clubs across the country. Nery was the winner of the 2014 Ultimate Miami Comedian competition. He was named “BEST STAND-UP COMEDIAN-2011” by Miami New Times. Nery was the OFFICIAL COMEDIAN OF THE MIAMI DOLPHINS for the 2010 season. He was a finalist at the 2007 Carnival Comedy Challenge, 2005 & 2007 “NBC Stand Up for Diversity” showcase as well as the “Maxim Real Men Of Comedy Tour” showcase, and a finalist for the South Beach Comedy Festival (2008 & 2009), Just for Laugh’s Comedy Festival showcase (2007, 2008 & 2009) and has worked with many of the top comedians in the industry.
Nery’s style of comedy is unique in that, although he comes from an Hispanic background, he doesn’t focus on that. His topics are relatable to anyone whether he’s poking fun at relationships, shopping for school supplies, or “Saved By the Bell.”
This powerhouse comedian’s dynamic style will keep you laughing out loud while you nod your head and exclaim, “Oh my God! I remember that!”
