The show was hit or miss. There were monologues that were hilarious, and there were some that had the house silent. The biggest issue I had with parts of the show, was that the material was not contemporary. 15 yrs ago I get how some of these jokes would be great, but today there is no context for the old time starlett or the chola lifegaurd.
It seems that the monologues change at every show so I don't think I can say you should pass, but be prepared that you may not get 2 hrs of comedy...it may only be a 15-20 mins and the rest will make you cringe.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Rick Najera’s work and writing are genius.” --Quentin Tarantino
- “No writer more authentically captures the flavor, pathos and comedy of the Hispanic world than Rick Najera.” --David Salzman, co-creator MADtv
Latinologues is an award winning, nationally recognized collection of comedic and poignant monologues about the Latino experience in America that was created, written, directed and produced for stage by Rick Najera, one of America’s leading comedy writers. Having written for such ground breaking shows as MADtv and In Living Color, Najera wanted to create a showcase for Latino talent. The idea was first conceived when Najera discovered a hunger for Latino actors to have a showcase, one where they could be seen in comedy.
