Aldo Pisano specializes in bold and inventive comedy…
He was born in San Francisco and raised by South American parents. Childhood experiences include: getting expelled from elementary school, performing in rap battles, and becoming a wrestling and baseball champ. After high school, Aldo traveled the U.S. as a Subaru car model, despite being average looking.
It was then, that he realized that he enjoyed entertaining others… So he studied screenwriting at NYU and acting at The Public Theater. Acting opposite Oscar Winner JK Simmons on TBS’ Men at Work was a particular highlight.
Aldo officially made L.A. his home when he participated in the NHMC's TV Writers Program sponsored by ABC and NBC. Since then, he’s committed himself to being:
the next/first Latino Alec Berg.
He wrote & directed When the Bomb Drops starring Golden Globe Winner Rachel Bloom of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. This project was nominated for an Imagen Award for Best Comedy Web Series.
He also wrote for the ABC and CBS Comedy Showcases. Aldo then sold a half-hour pilot to Turner Broadcasting’s Super Deluxe. In addition, he developed a pilot with Jared Stern (LEGO Batman Movie) over at WB.
Writing credits include Ben 10 for Cartoon Network — and Aldo wrote/directed the pilot episode of Granny, which premiered at HBO’s New York Latino Film Festival.
He has been a finalist for Sundance’s Episodic Lab and for their New Voices Lab. Currently, he is in the prestigious Sony Diverse Directors Program.
In his spare time, he mentor teens for Edward James Olmos’ Latino Film Institute, watches UFC, and visits National Parks with his lovely wife, a Colombian Feng Shui Consultant.
