As a comedian, it’s pretty dope to have the perspective of a Hispanic gay woman on stage. At the same time, Ashlynn Salzano didn’t know that she was a lesbian until she was 26 years old, so she can also relate to the “struggles” of the straights!
Salzano is a half-Dominican, half-Puerto Rican woman, but as a native New Yorker, she understands that that shit doesn’t really matter, since New York City is an equal opportunity monster.
Ashlynn is a woman, but has played sports throughout her entire life and wastes endless hours playing video games. All of this accumulates into yes; she’s gay, she’s Hispanic, and a woman, but doesn’t put herself in any type of box. Salzano is a person with a unique perspective on life, but loves to put herself in everyone else’s shoes to make fun of the shared experience of living in this god-awful world.
Salzano can be seen at comedy venues all over New York City and across the country, including West Side Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy Club, Dangerfield’s, Hollywood Improv, Good Good Comedy Theatre, and many more. She has performed at the Oak City Comedy Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina. She hosts and produces her own monthly show, Hump Day Comedy Night at Washington Heights’ staple, Coogans. She also hosts a weekly podcast, called Ya Know What I Mean?, with the DNR Studios that can be found on any streaming service.
