Marcella Arguello makes her Reno Tahoe Comedy headlining debut in a four show R-Rated Reno tour. Marcella is a stand-up comedian, writer and actor whose comedy knows no bounds; she eagerly discusses any and every topic that tickles her. From dating short guys – because she has no other options at 6’2’’ – to being mistaken for a man, her Latinx identity, her take on race & gender, and wild stories & situations she’s gotten herself in and out of. Marcella’s debut half hour comedy special Bitch, Grow Up. on HBO & HBO Max is quickly becoming a comedy classic. It’s a half hour that fully represents the comedians’ abilities to handle all forms of comedy – from one liners to stories to crowd work, the seventeen years she’s put in really shines through. Of the special, Latin Media writes that Marcella “manages to ruffle feathers while delivering a routine that feels absolutely joyous.” Decider.com writes, “she has earned this moment.”
She is most proud of her monthly show, Women Crush, which has a fresh and diverse line up, including national headliners as well as the brightest up and comers; Marcella mercilessly hosts the best curated show in all of Los Angeles. Don’t miss an opportunity to check it out. Her debut album, The Woke Bully – which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Comedy Charts and was named One Of The Best Comedy Albums of 2019 by NPR program Bullseye – is a combination of Marcella’s unique perspective & honesty and captures what it’s like to experience her live. In 2023, she can be seen on Fuse TV’s second season of We Need To Talk About America, where first generation comedians dissect American-centric topics and viral videos.
Marcella was also the host of The Cache on Tubi in 2021, a hilarious clip show that infuses Marcella’s unique perspective on viral videos. In 2020, COVID-19 halted the entertainment industry, but Marcella managed to guest star in Sarah Cooper’s Netflix Special Everything’s Fine, was seen as a panelist on David Spade’s Lights Out on Comedy Central, killed her over-the-top dance numbers on The Funny Dance Show on E! and had a covid compliant interview on FuseTV’s Like, Share, Dímelo. Her stand up can be seen on the second season of 2 Dope Queens on HBO as well as Night Train with Wyatt Cenac on STARZ. Previously she has made a guest appearance on Comedy Central’s Corporate and on episodes of FuseTV’s Trivial Takedown.
Recently MSN.com listed Marcella as number 10 in their list of “Top female comedians working in film and television today” alongside Amy Schumer, Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong. She wrote for the renewed Netflix series “Bill Nye Saves The World” and was a writer on the first season of the James Corden-produced show, Drop The Mic on TBS. She is a regular opener for Hasan Minhaj, Felipe Esparza and Nico Santos. She has previously opened for Hannibal Buress, David Alan Grier, Norm MacDonald, J.B. Smoove, Melissa Villaseñor, Ron Funches, Godfrey, Joey Coco Diaz, Melanie Comarcho and has shared a stage with Bill Burr, Dave Chappelle, Paul Mooney and Robin Williams.
Marcella has written and performed on too many TV shows to mention, and comedian Sean Keane referred to her as the “finest export from Modesto since George Lucas.” You don’t want to miss this rising star and her R-Rated comedy!
