Latin History for Morons

Critic's Choice!

John Leguizamo deserves a comic medal of valor in the battle against bias and ignorance.

Uproarious, uncensored, and undeniably entertaining, Latin History for Morons is the show we need right now: a night of eye-opening historical narrative courtesy of Tony® and Emmy® Award winner John Leguizamo. The self-professed ghetto scholar schools America on Cinco de Mayo—no, it’s not the Latino Fourth of July—and every other aspect of Latin history they’ve misunderstood and forgotten to create a heartfelt and funny tribute. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of the unknown Latin patriots who won American independence, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Pitbull into 110 irreverent and incisive minutes.

Enlightens and entertains, delving into the triumphs and destructibility of civilizations and the human heart.

Critics' Pick

A funny and surprisingly poignant quest for the perfect Latino hero!

He isn’t merely teaching us what we’ve never been taught. He’s giving us a space to cheer and cry, to laugh and listen.
