Arts and Culture Highlight- JD Arandía
Local Richmond artist JD Arandía is a podcast host, stand-up comedian, and County Arts Commissioner. JD is Bay Area born and raised. He grew up on a steady diet of Cantiflas, Chespirito, Jim Carrey and The Simpsons and from the first time he made someone laugh he was hooked. He enjoys the art of comedy because it brings light to all aspects of the human experience.
He has performed stand up since 2012 when he went to a comedy show in Richmond at the Boilerhouse Restaurant with local comedians from the Contra Costa College drama class.
JD hosts the podcast "The Voice Party" which regularly features Richmond artists.
