Gene Pompa's comedic perspective goes over quite well with all audiences in prison and Junior colleges across the nation. Doing stand up with great social relevance and irrelevance.All his grandparents hail from Mexico and came to Los Angeles in the early 1900s. Both his parents were born in East LA in the Thirties where he was also born, although Gene prefers to refer to it as East Los Angeles of Anaheim. He's been a Mexican American most of his life until they changed it to Chicano, then Hispanic, then Latino. Now he has no idea what the hell he should be called. He's made numerous television appearances including Conan, the Late Late Show an Comedy Central.
