Born and raised in Texas, David Wingo's first public performance involved dressing up as a mouse at the Olla Podrida Mexican market in Dallas. The job didn't last, but it did lead to his first beer (thrown at him by some unruly hecklers in a truck) and led to his unforgettable pseudonym Ola Podrida.
