Francisco Ramos

Episode 35: How a Career in Finance Enabled the Rise of a Comedian

Meet Francisco Ramos, a comedian, and actor whose previous career in finance allowed him to upend his life and pursue his dream of becoming a comedian. Francisco grew up in Venezuela, and moved to the U.S. with his family when he was 12. He learned English by himself, and always yearned to belong to his new environment. 

He graduated with a double degree in Finance and International Business from the University of Maryland, and after a couple of years, he realized that was not the path he wanted to follow in life.  After some introspection, he discovered doing comedy was his passion, and decided to “go for it”. 

Francisco talks about how his career in finance enabled him to pursue his dreams and speaks candidly about what it takes to become a comedian.
