OSCAR SAYS HI
(a little horrifying, huh?)
Thanks for stopping by!
Here's a little background on me in the third person:
Oscar comes from a dysfunctional (but loving) Latinx family, a proud first-generation lots of things blending his Guatemalan, Peruvian, and Cuban lineage into a fun sense of humor -- as if joking about things was the only way to process growing up...
From an early age, Oscar realized the impact of laughing in building community, as he navigated many siblings, family members, and the nuances of his cultural identity. After being the first in his family to graduate college, where he found sketch comedy, Oscar made the journey to LA, becoming a trained improviser/sketch writer (through UCB) and pursuing scripted comedy.
Currently, Oscar is a Script Coordinator for Gordita Chronicles on HBOMax. Previously, he was a Writers' Assistant on an unannounced Latinx comedy through Broadway Video. Represented by George Collins, Oscar's goal is to tell meaningful stories that break stereotypes, be a supportive collaborator, and make his family proud, all through heartfelt comedic writing.
Having fun is the goal!
