Ernesto Tomas Gritzewsky is the first member of his Mexican, American, Puerto Rican, Russian, & French family to graduate from college. In 1994, he graduated from Loyola Marymount University with his B.A. in Psychology and a Minor in Chicano Studies. The birth of “Ernie G” came in March of 1996 with his first pro gig at the “Eastside Comedy Jam” in Alhambra, CA. He became a “Latino Comedy Night” regular at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, and appeared at his first Latino Comedy Olympics show at the World Famous Improv. After 20 weeks of playing to standing room only crowds, he moved on to the Comedy Store where Ernie opened for Paul Rodriguez and Culture Clash in the Main Room for “La Fiesta USA,” and co-hosted “La Fiesta LA” in the Original Room.
