A collective group of Hispanic comedic actors known as Room 28 Comedy are fulfilling the demand for high-quality, Latino-based comedy in New York City.

The group consists of core five comedians Jaime Fernandez, Jerry “Elmo DiFoca” Diaz, Michael “Juan Bago” Diaz, Anthony Palmini and Rachel “La Loca” Strauss-Muñiz and a supporting cast that has helped Room 28 consistently sell out live shows.

The group's name is a reference to the mental institution in the Dominican Republic located at the 28th milepost between the cities of Santiago and Santo Domingo.

These successful Latino comedians reach thousands of social media users via filmed skits on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vine.
