Writer / Actor / Comedian
A writer/actor for the 'Room 28' comedy troupe, Steven Camarena-Green (also known as 'Ay Dios Mio' and Stevo), was born to a Panamanian family in Brooklyn, NY in 19NotTellingMyAge.Being an experienced writer in such areas as music production, creative writing, short stories and poetry, sketch comedy was just another creative area that he felt the need to express his unique effervescent and colorful personality. Not easily described by the typical "comedian" story, he was never the class clown or the kid that didn't get girls and used humor as compensation for any shortcomings or the kid that got picked on. Steven was more like the weirdo that used comedy to mask his socially deviant behavior.
Notorious for his 'raw' and 'uncut' sense of humor, he finds that many of his original skits require alterations to meet company guidelines. Although some may find some of his material abrasive, appalling, vulgar, offensive, insensitive, etc. (hence the 'Ay Dios Mio' moniker), according to Mr. Camarena-Green they are truths albeit a bit twisted camouflaged in humor. So, though people may be shocked initially, they always seem to want to tune in for more. Stevo has no problem saying what many people think but are too PC to say; he is their guilty pleasure.
His candid material developed a small following in various online communities, like MySpace.com, where he posts bulletins daily of accounts of his personal life. News topics and relationships were in high demand, so a higher platform was necessary.
Always one to explore the limits of human frailty and stupidity, Steven Camarena-Green takes you all the places you don't want to go, but can't wait to get there.
