Marcelo’s bio states that he’s opened for SNL alums like Mark Viera, Tim Dillon, Jim Breuer and the late Gilbert Gottfried and others. He has about a dozen appearances on Telemundo’s Acceso Total & NBC’s in the Mix.
He currently performs with Tim Dillon on select dates and the comedy circuit clubs in New York.
On Saturday October 8th, Marcello made his SNL debut the show’s Weekend Update segment, in which we shared his comedic sports commentary on Latino baseball players of the MLB. See below.
In 2020 he became a host, and creative director for Only in Dade’s County, which has a large following. They cover Miami lifestyle and Celebrities interviews, such as Nicky Jam and Floyd Mayweather to name a few.
2022 is looking very bright for the young comedian. Along with joining the cast of Saturday Night Live, (SNL) he was selected to be in ‘Just For Laughs, the largest international comedy festival in the world as the New Face of Comedy’.
The Miami-born comedian took center stage along with Pedro Pascal and Bad Bunny, the current world’s biggest artist in various in three hilarious Spanish-infused skits.
First up was “The Age of Discovery,” a bit that cast Bad Bunny and Hernández as a king and prince, respectively, unimpressed by a pair of explorers (Mikey Day and Fred Armisen) returning from the new world.
Hernández’s Spanish prowess shone in “Telenovela,” a sketch featuring a surprise appearance by Mick Jagger. The Rolling Stones frontman played the patriarch of two feuding brothers in the telenovela “El Pasión de las Padillas.”
However, the most talked-about skit featuring Hernández brought back Pedro Pascal’s portrayal of the quintessential overbearing Latina mom. This character, introduced last season and earning Pascal an Emmy nomination, returned to scrutinize Hernández’s latest non-Latina girlfriend (Chloe Toast). In the sketch, his mother and tía (Bad Bunny) express disapproval in Spanish to maintain secrecy, sprinkling in enough English to make it clear they’re throwing shade.
If Pascal’s character feels authentic, it’s because it is. Hernández revealed on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” that the character was inspired by his own mother. The comedian also shared that he had the opportunity to write the sketch because the “Mandalorian” star, Pascal, wanted to do something in Spanish—a chance for which Hernández remains grateful.
