RAFI GONZALEZ

Rafi Gonzalez has quickly made a name for himself in the New England Comedy scene. In a few short years, Gonzalez has gone from daydreaming about comedy to performing on just about every major stage in the Northeast. With a background as the front man of a touring rock band, Rafi applies this same charisma and energy into his stand-up. Whether it’s a spot-on impression, hilarious observation or spontaneous audience interaction, Gonzalez’s act appeals to crowds of every age and background. His comfort on stage translates well to any and all venues. Colleges, comedy clubs, fundraisers. No stage opportunity is foreign to Gonzalez. Rafi performs regularly at Laugh Boston, COMIX Mohegan Sun, The Rhode Island Comedy Connection, The FunnyBone, Dangerfields in NYC, and Nick’s Comedy Stop just to name a few. Gonzalez has performed in the Rogue Island Comedy Festival and won the 2017 Finger Lakes Comedy Festival.

More recently, Gonzalez has produced a series of comedy benefit shows, raising over $15,000 for his native Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria’s devastation.

Rafi has shared the stage with notable comedians like Pablo Francisco, Big Jay Oakerson, Mark Normand, Jessimae Peluso, Gilbert Gottfried, TJ Miller, Mitch Fatel, and many, many more.

Fast forward 30 years later, Kareem calls Bethlehem, CT his home and is producing local comedy shows in the area. Kareem was runner up in New England's Funniest Comic at Mohegan Sun.
