The Latino Comedy Project (LCP) is a popular, award-winning sketch comedy ensemble sponsored by Texas’ premier bilingual theatre company TEATRO Humanidad. The LCP's fast-paced, highly polished style of irreverent socio-political/pop culture parody has been a comedy institution for Latino and mainstream audiences alike, garnering rave audience response and critical acclaim!
Of the LCP’s debut performance, Adrienne Martini of "The Austin Chronicle" wrote: "The Latino Comedy Project is funny, hysterical enough that you leave the performance with a gut aching from deep belly laughs...Snappy writing, immaculate timing, and an animated cast. It's almost enough to restore your faith in the concept of sketch comedy."
Jean Claire van Ryzin of "The Austin-American Statesman" wrote: "At times witty and clever, at times absurd and slapstick, the Latino Comedy Project produces an original mix of ribald and intelligent comedy. With perfect timing, sharp writing, and a whopping dose of animated goofiness, the Latino Comedy Project proved that bitingly original sketch comedy is alive and well and Latin." Most recently, “The San Francisco Chronicle” Pop Culture Critic James Sullivan called the LCP “hilarious” and “murderously funny.”
In addition to its own many productions, the LCP has performed at the Big Stinkin’ International Comedy Festival, The Latino Laugh Fest, and alongside such national acts as L.A.’s Pocho!, Latinologues, Fred Willard, Rob Corddry, and stand-up comedians Gabriel Iglesias, Carlos Oscar, Pablo Francisco, and Carlos Mencia. The LCP has also been featured at nationally renowned Sketch Fests in Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, and Vancouver, British Columbia.
The LCP's comedy videos have been featured on the PBS 2004 election special "Frame of Mind: Voter's Revenge"; at the Boston International Latino Film Festival; and on "American Latino TV;" a nationally syndicated program seen in over 50 million housholds from coast to coast.
With an impressive membership of new and established Latino writers and performers, the LCP turns mainstream culture upside down in all-original sketch comedy productions that hilariously recreate the world in the Latino image!
They’re bad. They’re brown. They’re the Latino Comedy Project!
