Comedian Vanessa Gonzalez Netflix’s Verified Stand Up
Vanessa Gonzalez has been really excited about her participation in Netflix’s Verified Stand Up. She has been teasing her trailer and promoting herself incessantly on social media.
Even prior, Vanessa had made a decent name for herself. She was named “Best Stand-Up Comic” in Austin by the Austin Chronicle in 2022.
Also, not many know about Vanessa that before becoming a professional comedian, she taught preschool for six years. Her sketch series, Ms. Vanessa, draws on her time teaching and has popped up in several sets over the years. She said she loved working with kids and teaching “definitely” influenced her as far as how she looks at things.
And once she started comedy, there also came a time in her career when she received an Instagram DM from Chelsea Handler asking to be her opener. She had to do a double take to make sure it was the real deal.
How Much Is Comedian Vanessa Gonzalez’s Net Worth?
Comedian Vanessa Gonzalez reportedly had less than $200K net worth as of December 2023.
Vanessa was drawn to comedy as a kid. However, taking the stage alone, with a mic in hand, took some time. Growing up, she loved watching HBO specials, believing Chris Rock, Kathy Griffin, John Leguizamo, and Margaret Cho as huge influences and Def Comedy Jam was the best thing on TV. And then when it was time, she started her career in Austin doing sketches with the Latino Comedy Project. That eventually led to an interest in improv and, eventually, to stand up. In 2017, she was voted Best Stand-Up Comic in the Chronicle’s “Best of Austin” Readers Poll.

In October 2019, Vanessa performed a show titled “Getting Underwear from Your Boyfriend” for Comedy Central.
Much earlier, in 2015, Vanessa in her show called “I Don’t Know Dating” opened up that dating can be weird, especially the part that going out with strangers, never knowing what the other person is thinking.
