Bill Santiago is the first born of at least four children. He became a standup after narrowly escaping a career in journalism, facing the fact that as a comedian he was funny, but as a reporter he was a joke. With the premiere of his first television special, “Comedy Central Presents: Bill Santiago,” he won over fans nationwide with his dead-on observations about Spanglish – “twice the vocabulary and half the grammar!” and his beloved catchphrase “¡Porque because!”



Following the premiere, Santiago landed his first book deal, to write “Pardon My Spanglish ¡Porque Because!” based on his act and promising laughs for Latinos and the Latino-curious. Destined to become the comedic bible of Spanglish, Bill’s new book is available on Amazon.com and at bookstores near you. You can get more info on the book at www.pardonmyspanglish.com



Last year Bill hosted the Latin Grammy Person of the Year Award ceremony, honoring Juan Luis Guerra, at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.



He has also appeared on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Comedy Central’s Premium Blend,” “Que Locos,” “American Latino,” and is scheduled to appear on “ The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” October 24th.



Formerly an awarding-winning journalist, he contributed regularly to newspapers including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Miami Herald, The Boston Globe and The Philadelphia Inquirer. While living in Puerto Rico, he worked as a staff writer for The San Juan Star.



Bill’s new book ‘Pardon My Spanglish ¡Porque Because!’ is now available on Amazon.com
