Nestor Gomez was born in Guatemala but has lived in Chicago since the mid-80's. He has shared several stories about driving for a ride-sharing company, which he used as material for his first solo show. Nestor told his first story at a Chicago Moth Slam as a way to finally get over his stuttering, surprisingly he won that night and as of today holds the record for most Chicago Story Slam wins. However, if you ask him he will tell you that his biggest accomplishments are his kids, making his mother proud and winning the heart of his fiance Sweet Mel. Find more about Nestor at
