Sandra Valls is a comic, actor, singer, writer, and badass. She is best known for her powerful, electric, stand up comedy performances in Showtime’s THE LATIN DIVAS OF COMEDY (nominated for an Alma Award) and PRIDE: LGBT COMEDY SLAM!, hosted by Bruce Vilanch (both available for viewing now on Hulu.com). Her unique mix of physical comedy and brilliant story telling make it easy to see why the Los Angeles Times calls Sandra “Talented and Hilarious” as well as being included in Curve’s 2017 Power List as one of the Top 100 Most Influential Queer Women in the country. Latina Magazine voted Sandra One of the Top 33 Bad Ass Comics with Latina Roots. Curve Magazine voted her One of the Top 10 Funniest Lesbian Comics and Go Magazine has named Sandra One of the Top 100 Women We Love.
Sandra co-wrote and stars in the smash hit play, THE LATINA CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, which received “Critic’s Choice” by The Los Angeles Times three years in a row and continually sells out year after year at the Los Angeles Theatre Center.
Her television credits include NickMom Night Out (Nickelodeon), Outlaugh Festival, One Night Stand Up (LOGO), Comic’s Unleashed with Byron Allen (ABC), Habla! (HBO), Que Locos (Galavision), Funny is Funny, Latino 101 (Sitv), BET’s Comic View and countless other TV spots including MTV3’s Quiero Mis Quince, Wanna be Latinos and Top Tr3ce, Mun2 Comedy Documentary and I love Jenny!
Sandra is also a favorite onstage as an emcee. Her hosting credits include TedX Women—Beverly Hills, HRC San Antonio, Women in Medicine: Lesbian Health Fund Conference, San Antonio LGBT Chamber of Commerce Coming Out Day, Equality San Antonio – Spirit of Texas Brunch, La Femme Film Awards (10 years in a row), Power UP—10 Amazing Gay Women and Men Gala, and GLAAD Awards, to name a few.
From hosting to touring with the Lezberados and the Queer Queens of Qomedy to sharing the stage with Eva Longoria at the HBO Comedy Festival, Sandra still finds time to give back to the community by volunteering and producing comedy shows for various causes including benefits/fundraisers for Aids, sobriety, anti-bullying, domestic violence and LGBTQ rights.
