Comedy with Bruce Jingles
Bruce Jingles is not a Black Comic, he is a Comic that happens to be black. He couldn't have picked a better name for his chosen line of work, but he'll be the first to tell you that his name has both blessed and cursed him throughout his life. After all it's not easy, as Bruce will tell you, to "transition from the sprawling metropolis that is south central L.A. to the hard mean streets of South El Monte", but being born in South LA, raised in South El Monte and living in the Inland Empire have given Bruce Jingles comedic style that can only occur in suburban southern California. "Growing up, I was always a couple inches taller than the other kids, and when you're the new black kid in a Mexican neighborhood, there's never a shortage of other kids trying to prove themselves against you. Add the name Jingles to the equation and you have a recipe for potential disaster! Never mind the fact that I couldn't fight worth a damnc'mon man. I had to learn to make folks laugh."
Always eager to offer insight into everything from the political to the preposterous, his material is largely based on personal experiences and observations that were "born in the world in between the comic book store and the local weed house, and all of the other bullshit in between".
A hardened veteran of the inland club circuit, Bruce's So Cal based comedy has taken him literally, all over the world. Bruce, "The absolutely coolest gigs that I've ever done have been the USO gigs. I mean these are the guys that can best appreciate a good laugh." Bruce's work for the USO has taken him to The Balkans, Iraq (twice) and Germany.
Most recently, he has been voted Inland Empire Weekly's "Comic of the year" for a second consecutive year and now presents his headlining act nationally along with film credits that include two Showtime specials, "Jeff Garcia's Low Budget Madness," and "The Ten Dollar Ticket", NUVOTV on "Stand up and Deliver" along with the soon to be released "Driving Bill Crazy". IN the meantime, catch his sets on Youtube or watch for his next appearance on TMZ!
