Too lazy to shoot hoops and much too smart to model, Marcella Arguello may be taller than most men, but the only thing more intimidating than her height is her comedy.
Marcella, a rising talent in the San Francisco area, mixes a combination of genuine reason with a sexy suggestion of street. Deemed as “sexually and ethnically ambiguous” she appeals to everyone and is not afraid to tell you how she really feels about subjects concerning gender, relationships, family, work and whatever else is on her mind that day.
Marcella has opened for former SNL player Norm MacDonald and recently shared a stage with Mark Curry and Paul Mooney. She is a regular on the5 Funny Females Tour , has performed at The San Jose Improv, The Punchline Comedy Clubs in both Sacramento and San Francisco and plays all over the Bay Area and Central Valley. San Francisco-based comedian Sean Keane once referred to her as the “finest export from Modesto since George Lucas.” Legendary underground comic Marga Gomez has noted Marcella as a “hysterical young glamazon” who can “get the audience to make noise sometimes by threatening them and they love it.”
Currently, she is participating in a documentary about women in comedy entitled Welcome To The Stage. It features fellow comedians Pamela Ames, Janine Brito and Dana LoVecchio.
Marcella is also developing a satirical feminist book entitled “Everybody Aborts!” which has a tentative release date of Late 2009. Stay Tuned!
