Dustin Ybarra, like many comics, began his career talking about the things he knew about as a twentysomething man: partying, food, and girls. “Have I had any growth?” he asks, laughing. “No. Fast food is still a big chunk of my set.” That’s not the only thing he covers nowadays, though. “I talk about immigration, because that’s a hot topic. I’m half Mexican. So I guess I have to, and I can without people freaking out.” However, not everyone is on board. “It’s different everywhere,” he notes. “I was in Houston, and I did this bit about it, and someone came up afterwards—a pretty hardcore Trump supporter—and he tried to get all political with me. I said, ‘Dude, you’re at a comedy show. Chill out.’” Ybarra confesses he’s really not that politically aware. “I’ve never been a political guy. I’m kind of dumb with the world of politics. I don’t know what I’m talking about, so I’m not going to give an opinion. Onstage I just try to take everyone out of the world into this weird immature place of fast food and video games.”
