If you knew Will Lopez from his other gig – frontman for Cuban punk rock act Guajiro – you probably wouldn’t think of the guy as having much of a sense of humor. Sure, Guajiro’s songs can have a wickedly funny streak – the group’s song that references Fidel Castro having a beard made of pubic hair springs immediately to mind – but for the most part, Guajiro is known for rage more than hilarity. And yet, two years ago, Lopez started doing standup open mics. Recently, he was selected to participate in the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, one of only two local comedians to be selected. We asked him how he managed to pull that one off, and what else he has planned in his burgeoning comedy career.
