Born and raised in Miami, FL., Currais began performing stand up comedy while attending college at the University of Florida. He is a founding member of The Gainesville Comedy Showcase and UF’s University Stand up Comedy Club (U.S.U.C.C.).
His high energy performance style and outrageously quirky material gained Currais some local notoriety and a number of high profile shows which included opening spots for comedians like Dan Cummings (Last Comic Standing) and Finesse Mitchell (Saturday Night Live). Soon he began performing on the road at several bars and venues in Florida.
2009 marked Currais’s decision to pursue comedy full time. Currais now performs in Comedy Clubs, bars, colleges and other venues across the United States. His comedic talent and his stage act continue to grow with each performance. He has slowly begun to build a following among college students and comedy club patrons. He has been featured on ABC, FOX, Rooftop Comedy, The Independent Alligator and Orlando Magazine.
He is the star of the online sitcom “Oppie’s Friend Gene” and made his filmic debut in the Sundance Film Festival film “New Low.” He has opened for the likes of Pauly Shore, David Allen Greer, Steve Byrne and Ralphie May. His persona is as big as his imagination and you never know where the show will end up when this man-child is the ring master.
