With a wide grin and uproarious sense of humor, Dustin Ybarra seemed like he was born to make people laugh. Born in Texas in 1990, Ybarra mined the Dallas comedy scene early on, and was even selected as a finalist at the Funniest Dallas Comic competition in 2010. He knew that he would eventually need to relocate to a city with more professional opportunities in order to further his career, but he was not yet planning to relocate when he traveled to New York later that same year to perform at the NBC Diversity Comedy Showcase. It just so happened, however, that the friend-of-a-friend who put Ybarra up during his stay invited him to continue living there as long as he liked, and so Ybarra's New York visit became a permanent move as he used his rent-free time there to find his footing. He would relocate to Los Angeles in a similar fashion, opting to remain in the city after a studio flew him there to test for a pilot. Meanwhile, Ybarra was slowly but surely racking up onscreen roles, appearing in the comedy "Beware the Gonzo" (2010) as well as the Cameron Crowe dramedy "We Bought a Zoo" (2011). He went on to appear in "21 & Over" (2013) and "Ted 2" (2015) before joining the cast of fantasy sitcom "Kevin (Probably) Saves the World" (ABC, 2017-).
