We’re Crushing It!
Really proud of all the work the Latinx Comedy Pachanga has done this year so far!
Here’s what we’ve done so far:
1). Launched a live version of our Latinx panel show, Cuñados, Cuñadas, y Carnales – we spent a year developing this show on Twitch, so it was great to do it live at the Pack Theater
2). Completed a run of Ka-Blahm-O! shows at Catsby – this show found its voice by becoming a stand-up/solo showcase with just a bit of clown energy and pro wrestling spirit in its veins
3). Had our first Potluck of the year at the Glendale Room, and had a really great “You should’ve been there” time – this variety hour is our longest running show, so I’m glad we put it up
4). Met new and amazing Latinx comics who blew my mind with their talents, POVs, and energies – LA is bursting with so many funny Latinx comics!
5). Was reminded of the amazing talents in the Pachanga ensemble – people have stepped up as producers, performers, writers, and ambassadors, and I’m all for it! I can’t wait to see more of it!
6). We did shows at The Clubhouse, Pack Theater, The Glendale Room, and Thymele Arts*
*To my tocaya, I consider our Fernandx sets mini Pachanga shows!
7). We featured a bunch of Latinx comics from the huge umbrella that is Latinx, and we all supported and lifted each other up!
8). I want to repeat the last point: we showcased a bunch of Latinx talent – The Pachanga will always be about putting up Latinx voices front and center.
As long we keep doing that – and providing as many opportunities for Latinx artists as possible – we’re going to be amazing.
Thank you to all the artists who shared their talents with the Pachanga so far this year, and I’m grateful for your talents and contributions.
And thank you to the venues and audiences who made all this possible!
It’s true: if you build it, they will come.
We got more shows coming up, so stay tuned!
Also, props to Melissa Funes for all the artwork, promotion, social media, and just general amazing help!
