For the next few years, he performed at popular Los Angeles comedy clubs, such as The Comedy Store and The LA Cabaret.

In 2001, he became part of the regular voice-over cast for the Disney animated sitcom The Proud Family. In 2002, he headlined at comedy clubs across the country with "The Three Amigos," a touring show that co-starred comedians Freddy Soto and Pablo Francisco. That same year, he also starred in the movie Outta Time.
