Yamil Piedra and Johnny Trabanco are A PAIR OF NUTS! This Emmy Award-winning comedy duo has been performing together since 1998 where they met in college at Florida International University in Miami, FL. Selected as “Hot Comedy” by Campus Activities Magazine in 2011, their online videos have been featured all over the internet garnering millions of views worldwide. The Nuts have toured the US performing at various venues including comedy clubs, colleges, & military bases nationwide. They were nominated for Best Comedy and Entertainer of the Year for the 2012 Campus Activities Magazine Reader’s Choice Awards. In 2012, the Nuts were invited to close out the South Beach Comedy Festival.
With an ever-growing fan base thanks to their online videos and live tour, the Nuts have been featured on Last Call with Carson Daly, Tosh.0, VH1, Discovery Channel, BET, and MegaTV. They were the stars and writers of MegaTV’s El Vacilon, a Spanish language sketch comedy show where they worked with some of the biggest Hispanic celebrities including Wilmer Valderrama, Tony Plana, and Luis Guzman, to name a few. The show allowed Yamil and Johnny to introduce the Hispanic market to a new style of comedy never before seen on Spanish television… funny.
Their live stage show is an award winning multimedia sketch comedy show that features hilarious sketches and off the wall short videos. Yamil and Johnny’s style of comedy has been compared to a modern day Abbott & Costello, a throwback to old school comedy duos with a modern, edgy flair. And even though they’re Hispanic, they don’t limit themselves to Latin themed comedy. Yamil and Johnny have proven time and time again that their comedy is universal, which is why everybody loves Nuts. Whether you’ve seen them on the internet or on television, we guarantee there is nothing quite like seeing A Pair of Nuts LIVE and in your face!
The Nuts are currently in development with a major Hollywood production company for their own television show.
