Jose Isaac Martinez

Comedian

There is a famous Buddhist proverb which states “Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.” That is the Mantra of comedian Isaac Martinez (known by his stage name Flaco. (Which is slang for Skinny in Spanish.) Born with Marfan Syndrome, Flaco had difficulty gaining weight and knew from an early age that pain was going to be an unavoidable facet of life. Though that never stopped him. He wholeheartedly embraced who he was into his hilarious, unique and deeply personal stand-up routine. Flaco began his love for performing as an actor at East Los Angeles College, he was also a part of a few Improv groups and today he has a quickly growing reputation as one funny comedian. Pretty soon, you will see his face everywhere. (well… everywhere except the Food Network.)
