"Beauty & The Beast" - NYC 2011 IMATS


BEAUTY & THE BEAST


A regular show in L.A. and Toronto, 2011 is the first year New York City hosted the IMATS (International Make-Up Artist Trade Show). MEHRON (who also sponsored the film "When Bobby Met Larry") was one of the many companies showcasing their products at the trade show. Instead of using models, Meagan Hester who is the key make-up SPFX artist for MEHRON suggested they use actors! Although I've worked on many film/theater productions with Meagan Hester and MEHRON, this was my first live performance as a Disney character......THE BEAST! Unlike theater, this called for the actors to interact with the public and use their improv ability to bring forth a real sense of the characters. From, the Beast to a walking zombie.....It was indeed a SPECTACLE!
Meagan also brought on another very talented SPFX artist by the name of Jason Milani. Both blew the competition away and allowed MEHRON to become one of this year's IMAT sensations.



In the process of being made into the BEAST


Who said being an artist is all glitz and glam?! Actors had to be on set early on Sunday morning to prep them for the show. Between applying prosthetic pieces, makeup and crep hair, (hair applied to the BEAST) it took SPFX artist Meagan Hester 3 1/2 - 4 hours....Now I know why I have such a flat ass!

None-the-less the end product was a true success and everyone absolutely loved it! I wowed show goers and scared little kids....it was great!

Check out more pics in the next post!

From CoMeDy to Soap Operas



Most Recently I worked as Officer Garcia in a recurring role on the very long running and successful soap "One Life To Live" on ABC opposite Mark Lawson who plays Brody Lovett. I had a small role, but none-the-less I felt honored to be working with such a talented and successful cast. Whether you're a fan of soaps or not, it's definitely hard to deny the fact that the plots draw you in. I have experience in theater and film, but have to say soap work is the fastest and most organized form of TV production I've ever seen.


Just like in comedy, you have to earn your stripes by doing as many gigs, gaining stage time experience before moving on to to radio or TV. I consider myself an actor before I do a comedian because it is my first passion. However, through time I have established a strong love for both. Let's put it this way, if I were married to acting, comedy would be my "sister wife"....I know, that's pretty disgusting, but it's comedy people!

I had a blast working on the set. I look forward to continuing working on "OLTL"! Stay tuned for dates and times!

Please take a look at my schedule on my events page. I'm currently performing in the New York City area. www.thecarlosgonzalez.com

Thanks for checking my blog....tune in again soon!

Latin American Comedy Tour - A tribute to Colombia

After my tour, I took the time to visit family and check out the beauty that Colombia had to offer.



La Chiva - Originally used to transport farmers and their goods is now and has been used for some time as a tour bus to see the different city attractions throughout the country. It is also used in the night life of native Colombians as a way to drink and party without having to drive. These buses usually have live bands in the back two seats while stopping at different night/dance clubs, dropping off and picking people up.

Latin American Comedy Tour









Latin American Comedy Tour

Although this was my first comedy tour abroad, I have to say it felt like home. The food, culture and language were something I was very familiar with. From the Mountain tops of Costa Rica, the Valleys of Colombia, to the country side of Chile and Argentina, South America continues to be one of the world's most beautiful, cultural and exciting places to visit.
