Marcella Arguello

Comedian, Writer


Too lazy to shoot hoops and too tall to model, Marcella Arguello stands over 6 feet. Although she may be taller than most men, the only thing more intimidating than her height is her comedy. Marcella mixes a combination of genuine reason with a sexy suggestion of street. Deemed as “sexually and ethnically ambiguous” she appeals to everyone and is not afraid to tell you how she really feels about subjects concerning gender, relationships, family, work and whatever else is on her mind that day.

The recipient of the 2009 MAMA Award for Best Comedian, Marcella has opened for Norm MacDonald, Aries Spears, Sugar Sammy, Melanie Comarcho and recently shared a stage with Mark Curry and Paul Mooney. She has worked at Cobbs Comedy Club, The San Jose Improv and is a regular at The Punchline Comedy Clubs in Sacramento and San Francisco. Comedian Sean Keane referred to her as the “finest export from Modesto since George Lucas”; while comedian Marga Gomez has noted the “hysterical young glamazon” as someone who can “get the audience to make noise by threatening them and they love it.”
