Debi Gutierrez has become quite the expert on life and relationships. It was during a dinner one night that she realized her marriage wasn’t what it used to be. From that moment on she decided to rebuild the bond she’d lost with her husband and along the way, she learned enough stuff to start a 45-minute comedy show about relationships.
Originally, Gutierrez was a high school teacher, which could explain her amazing ability to connect with the audience and pass on her knowledge of marriage. Her unique style doesn’t alienate men and it speaks to couples of all ages.
In the 17-years Debi’s been doing this, she’s performed all over the world and makes regular appearances at some of the country’s top comedy clubs. She’s even been dubbed, “The Mommycomic.”
Besides comedy, Debi has dabbled as an actress and TV host. You may remember seeing her in an eBay commercial dancing through a freeway traffic jam. She starred in a pilot sitcom called BLISS as well. Gutierrez hosted, HIDDEN AGENDA, a series on the Gameshow Network where couples tried to convince their partners to complete a series of challenges for money without divulging they’re on a gameshow. She also just completed her 5th season as the host of KCET-TV’s Emmy-winning parenting show, A PLACE OF OUR OWN.
And her comedy has been seen on dozens of networks including Style, E!, NBC, Showtime, Comedy Central and more! And she’s also got a comedy CD out now titled, HE’S NOT YOUR GIRLFRIEND, where most of the material is taken straight from her own missadventures in dating.

This is one of the first interview shows we’ve done that felt more like a regular Who Asked You? episode. Kevin Lepine, a hypnotist with a show at the Harmon Theater here in Las Vegas hit it off with us right away. We did talk about Kevin and his career. But we also talked about a bunch of other random stuff. TV shows, old cartoons, music, movies… it all came up somehow. Kevin clicked with us so well, he stuck around for the Christmas Special of Who Asked You? and became the first ever guest in the special’s history. And that’s a monumental achievement given there have now been 3 of these specials!
You know what else is a monumental achievement? Convincing 10 random people that cocktail napkins are $100 bills. We headed down to Planet Hollywood and checked out Kevin’s show. It was a blast! Under hypnosis he had randomly selected audience members stuffing napkins in their pockets and bras, one woman petting a dildo like a kitty cat and was nearly molested from behind when he told the volunteers his clothes only covered the front of his body. When he turned his back to them, one guy on the end reached out his hand with a perplexed expression and nearly felt Kevin up better than a TSA agent. Luckily he dodged the near-groping and the crowd roared with laughter.
Kevin tries to post a clip from each of the show’s he hosts on his YouTube channel. You can find a link to that and his other web locales below. But we highly recommend, if you’re in Las Vegas, to check out the Harmon theater. It’s a cozy spot with a bar right inside, so you won’t miss part of the show ordering a drink. And best of all, you’ll laugh your ass off… unless you’re up on stage, then you’ll do what Kevin says.
Watch this security camera footage from Germany of a drunken Santa as he stumbles around, falls down, hits his face on a car bumper and marks his territory in numerous places. Watch for the couple’s reaction at the end as they come out of the elevator. The man shows his own kind of X-Mas spirit. Merry Christmas!!!
