Shayla Rivera is a Puerto Rican/American stand-up comedian who uses observational and self-deprecating humor to point out that the truth is the funniest thing out there. Rivera’s material is intended for mature audiences as she reports her observations of the common experiences in our everyday life. Her point of view comes from being herself, a woman, a Latino, a mother, a rocket scientist, a mystic, etc., “You know, a typical human being”, she says.
