Jenny Lorenzo is a Cuban-American actor, writer, and content creator, born and raised in Miami, FL, who is known for her work on Aggressive Comix, We Are Mitú and is one of the original co-founders of BuzzFeed's Pero Like. Jenny became a viral sensation with her beloved Abuela character that has garnered millions of views online along with her relatable, Latino-based content seen through the comedic and nostalgic lens of a 1st generation Cuban-American. In other words, living in the hyphen. She won "Best Fictional Character“ for Abuela at the 2018 Tecla Awards and recently won Creator of the Year at the 2019 Tecla Awards. In 2017, Lorenzo was a participant in the Women in Comedy program at YouTube Space LA in partnership with Elizabeth Banks and WhoHaHa. She was selected out of 12 women for the program and then chosen to be personally mentored by Elizabeth, herself. Last year, she wrapped on a consistently sold-out SPANK show at Upright Citizen's Brigade called, "Wow! Que Show!” Since going solo to focus on her own content two years ago, Jenny has since developed 6 new characters that are being very well received on her platforms and you can now watch Jenny in the recurring role as Lupe on Cartoon Network's Victor & Valentino."
