One of my favorite people is finally on the podcast, after me asking him so many times. Once I started taking tips from one of those extravagant 'Will you be my Prom Date?' Videos, I finally got him on and it only took a trail of rose petals leading to a pizza. Well we are just talking big picture, things like autocorrect, utter paranoia towards life, being afraid of food, and creepy people who pretend to be teenage girls on the internet.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Vladimir Perez is an actor/writer residing in Los Angeles.
Currently he is performing with his UCB Mess Hall Improv team Fresh Kicks and writing for the CBS Diversity Sketch Showcase. Other UCB credits include hosting the LA WEEKLY Top pick show the Hip Hop Source Awardz, the CBS Diversity Showcase Rejected Sketches, Cage Match NY, Indie Cage Match NY, The Third Annual Halloween Scream, Spank, and Not Too Shabby.
