Me llamo Edson Montenegro (they/them). I'm a non-binary, Latine comedian, actor, and writer based in New York City - but, I'm originally from Los Angeles! I received a B.S. in Communication Studies from Northwestern University (which I don't use lol). At Northwestern, I was a member of our premier improv/sketch comedy groups, Mee-Ow and Out Da Box.

I perform at different venues around NYC, including Union Hall, Brooklyn Comedy Collective, the People's Improv Theater, and Asylum NYC. Most recently, I was cast as a sketch performer on Maude night at Upright Citizen's Brigade.

I can be seen in Vanity Fair impersonating Natasha Lyonne; my sketch team Queer Window has performed at the 2022 & 2023 New York Comedy Festival; and I originated the role of "The Twink" in Stan Zimmerman and James Berg's comedy Silver Foxes, directed by Michael Urie. I was featured by Fuse TV as one of 8 First Generation Comedians to Highlight and have personal, comedic essays published on Insider.
