Emilio Rossal, host of weekly comedy podcast, Podkward, is about as close to a Los Angeles native as they come in "the biz" (which is what folks in "the biz" call "show business"). Born in Guatemala and raised in the mean streets of the San Fernando Valley, Emilio has years of experience in improv, having trained at the famed Groundlings and Upright Citizens Brigade theatres, and performed in a plethora of improv shows around town. After appearing in several national commercials for McDonald´s, Chevy, and Bank of America, to name a few, he decided 2013 was the year he´d finally take a crack at stand-up. God help us all. You may have also seen him on Tim & Eric´s Awesome Show as "Guy with Awkwardly Long Close-up" and General Hospital as "Wussy Cab Driver." But probably not.
