He is the creator and Executive Producer of “SlantED Comedy,” a showcase of Asian American stand-up comedians televised on Showtime and also performs across the country and internationally.

San Juan’s first film appearance was in “I’m Not Like That No More” (2010), a comedy co-starring Felipe Esparza.
