What a show! This show has the perfect balance between serious and funny which soon becomes very powerful when the line between them both blurs, making a statement about the way non Latin Americans view us which can dangerously lead to how we view ourselves. Everything in this show is a spoof of Latin American culture and when shown to British audiences - it works very effectively to hit them in the face with the stereotypes. Even down to the music - I was very appreciative of the cringiest most overplayed ‘Spanish’ songs chosen.
I commend Guido Garcia Lueches for making British audiences loud and loving it too.
This is a must watch at fringe.

Brilliant mix of comedy and serious. This is one of my favourite things I’ve seen at the fringe this year. The themes really hit home and make you think. Fabulous 1 man show!!!

A lot of laughs between the serious points posed. A great show but totally not what i imagined it to be....

A brilliant performance! This is a show you will not see anywhere else during this Fringe, it creates a welcoming atmosphere to question prejudices about being (or trying to be) a Latinx. This is a reflective show that will make you laugh, get loose, connect with your emotional side and contemplate with a fresh lens the effects of systematic oppression.

Really great show! Amazing humour mixed with messages that provoke real thought. Some light hearted audience participation that inspires a unique one off experience. Very talented performer and would recommend the show to others.

This is a spectacular piece of writing which proves the point that comedy can be the best way of conveying a message. It's a wonderfully entertaining hour of high octane performance and gentle audience participation, which leaves you thinking far more about the content than many more serious shows. Sit in the front row (especially if you have a single syllable name) and join in. It's one of the best ways to spend an hour at Summerhall this year.

MUST SEE! Funny, so cleverly funny (albeit dark, but damn well done), gets DEEP and REAL, pointing out the major flaws in our society's depictions and stereotypes around latinx folk. Educational, entertaining, and do the audience participation its a blast. Also the actor makes you feel very comfortable, they seem like genuinely great person. Going to see later with more friends later in the run!

a breath of fresh air that helps to let go of the tight grip of attempting to both live up to and break out of the stereotype

Lost in Theatreland (4/5 stars) 42 days ago

Expertly directed and incredibly confident in its delivery, this is an eye-opening commentary on many aspects of power and difference. There’s not a moment where it loses energy, and it conveys a wide range of ideas without ever feeling didactic.

This thought-provoking show is genius: a good hour of fun with a substrate of a clever analysis of racism, in many of the shapes it materialises in.
