As the daughter of a Puerto Rican mom and a Salvadorian dad living in the South, Aniria lives the “Cultural Bermuda Triangle” daily! Having moved here from El Salvador at the age of 6, the culture shock and the pleasing of 3 cultural expectations lingers in her witty observations. Because she started her passion for stand up later in life, it quickly became therapy that helped her get through a divorce and juggling a new dating life with raising kids. Now remarried, her repertoire has expanded.
Her comedy expresses the “in your face” truths about cultural differences, dating, kids, sex and how men and women relate.
Aside from stand up, Aniria is also an actor. She got her lucky break in the upcoming Netflix film “Naked” with Marlon Wayans and recently appeared on an episode of Chicago Med on NBC. She is currently working on producing a sketch comedy web series called “The Funny Diva Show” based on a stand-up comedy tour she was a part of bearing the same name. Aniria’s other credits include Comedy Central’s Up Next and America’s Got Talent.
Exclusive interview coming soon! Meet Anaria at the next Latin ConneXions Networking Social on Friday, July 7th, 2017 @ Station Grill from 6-9 PM.
