One of Paste’s favorite up-and-coming stand-up comedians, Julio Torres, is setting out on a preview run of his My Favorite Shapes show which he will be performing at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
During this multimedia comedy show, Torres will use some of his favorite shapes, from a self-conscious Faberge egg to a sad crumpled-up wrapper that reminds him of Melania Trump, to guide the audience on a journey of fantastical stories, jokes and anecdotes.
Torres has been on our radar since he surprised us at Just For Laughs festival in 2015. Since then, he has been writing highly praised sketches on Saturday Night Live and his stand-up was recently featured on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Torres also has a half-hour special premiering on Comedy Central this fall.
Check out Torres’ show dates below, beneath his recent performance at the Paste Studio.
