Given that the Latino population in the United States is rapidly approaching a state of majority rather than minority, the rest of us should probably get on board with the particularly hilarious brand of Hispanic and Latino comedy that members of that cultural community have pioneered. As evidenced by the recent Latin Legends of Comedy film, released in 2006, Hispanic comedy is reaching a crescendo of popularity, and Comediansusa.com is on top of the ball game when it comes to the best in the world of Latin comedy.
A list of famous comedians a mile long has especially grown during the past few decades. But that list would almost certainly start with the evergreen act of Cheech and Chong, two “high” artists who love their culture almost as much as they love a certain plant. Adding to the cultural humor of the dynamic duo, Cheech Marin’s partner, Tommy Chong, only plays a Hispanic on film, being himself a Canadian native of Asian descent.
However, the list of famous Latino comedians has extended far beyond that point to include modern contemporaries like Carlos Mencia, who has ascended the ranks of the entertainment world to have his own show on Comedy Central in addition to a successful stand-up career.
George Lopez, another successful Hispanic stand-up comedian, also uses his Latin heritage as fodder for comedy. Lopez inherited his Hispanic culture while growing up Los Angeles California, and other focuses his wit on twists on the Mexican culture that is so prevalent in American society today. Furthermore, among the most popular Latin comedians on today’s circuit is Greg Giraldo, who was featured in several Comedy Central “Roasts” of famous celebrity comedians. Giraldo pulls on his Latin heritage for yucks, the skill of another legend to have come from the Latino culture.
Latin comedy is often defined by its anticipation of stereotypes of the people of Mexico, which, while inaccurate and racist, are hilarious in the hands of a skilled comedian. For example, too often Mexicans are made fun of for being lazy. But do you know why there are no Mexicans on Star Trek’s Enterprise? Mexicans are lazy in the future, too!
