Ernie Bustamante is a writer, comedian, and connoisseur of nachos.
He has sold pilot scripts to broadcast, cable, and digital networks. Worked as a staff writer on half-hour comedies. And appeared on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” (as a dancing monkey).
Currently, Ernie is developing the half-hour comedy “Border Patrol” — based on his short film — which centers on two polar opposite Latino Border Patrol agents. And every third Monday, he hosts “The Latino Vote” — a late night talk show — at UCB Sunset. It’s a free!
Ernie received his BA in political science from Stanford University and MFA in screenwriting from UCLA. Before pursuing comedy, Ernie worked as a campaign staffer for then-Senator John Kerry.
