Freddy had enjoyed much success over his 13-year stand-up career. He toured nationwide with "The Three Amigos," in addition to headlining comedy clubs across with country including the famous Riviera in Las Vegas. Among his credits is a 30-city tour with pop-super-star Marc Anthony. He also completed production of "Freddy", a sitcom pilot for UPN based on his stand-up routine.

All of Freddy's success was due to his undying dedication to his craft. It was The Comedy Store that gave him the courage and stage time necessary to become an unstoppable force in the world of stand-up. He started as a doorman at Mitzi Shore's legendary Los Angeles comedy club. Freddy was considered one of the top headlining acts (Latin or otherwise) working the circuit, and when he wasn't touring, he could be seen regularly at the top clubs in Los Angeles where his performances were a much talked-about favorite. Sadly, Freddy Soto passed away in July 2005.
