Comedian Ken Jeong expressed his heartbreak to X, writing in part, “Rudy Moreno, the Godfather of Latino Comedy, was the first person to book me at the Ice House. In fact, the first time my wife ever saw me do standup was at the Ice House on Rudy’s show. All this ultimately led to me doing my Netflix special at the Ice House, thanks to Rudy Moreno constantly supporting me and letting me get stage time on all of his shows. There are countless comedians who owe their start to this man.”

Moreno was a frequent performer at the Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena.

He is survived by his wife Arlene, their two children and several grandchildren.
