Cesar has performed in several venues in Chicago over the years, most notably with The Second City National Touring Company, The Playground Theater, The CIC Theater, and with the legendary iO Theater. Outside of Chicago he has performed with The UCB Theater in New York and L.A., The Second City Hollywood, and the iO West Theater located in Hollywood, CA.

He currently performs weekly at the iO Theater in Chicago, including critic and crowd favorites, ‘The Armando Diaz Experience & Hootenanny” and “Felt“.




Founded by iO alums Adam McKay, Dave Koechner, and Armando Diaz, ” The Armando Diaz Experience & Hootenanny” is iO’s longest running show and a landmark of comedy in Chicago.






 ‘Felt’ is a completely improvised show with an added touch of fun due to the fact its cast is not human.

This unique, unpredictable, and fun cast has been entertaining audiences at the legendary iO Theater in Chicago for over 7 years.
