Stacks Image 12992
Who thought sitting in a dental chair could be so entertaining? Come meet Carlos Rodriquez (dental hygienist and stand-up comedian) and laugh about work, relationships and absurd day-to-day observations.
Based out of Atlanta, Carlos is a Navy veteran, a family man, and one who loves to make people laugh.
Humor and comedy have kept Carlos sane in one of the most stressful and unenjoyable places to be. In the dental industry since 1988, Carlos regularly has folks laughing out loud in the chair. Encouraged by office patients, he took a comedy writers’ workshop in 2012 and by 2013 was voted Reader’s Choice Best Male Comedian in Atlanta by the entertainment periodical Creative Loafing. Most recently, he was awarded a Best of 2015 by Thumbtack.
Carlos performs in clubs all over the southeast and in NYC.
