The Bronx comedy goes to Manhattan! After a sold out run at Pregones Theater in The Bronx, this Bronx Tale takes The Lower East Side by storm. Indulge this unique and funny experience!

There is a new show in town and it is being called “The best little comedy in NYC”.

Growing Up Gonzales: love, lies and my first hooker takes us on a hilarious trip through the life of 49 year old Cisco Gonzales.

A young innocent boy raised by wolves (actually big brothers) grows up and shares stories about his Bewildered, Maladjusted, Disconnected, Misguided, Racially Unbalanced youth in Growing Up Gonzales: love, lies and my first hooker. After generations of secrecy, the truth about “Machismo” is finally revealed, The secret “Ritual Beatdown” at Latino Funerals is finally exposed and borderline psychotic childhood lessons are finally dissected.

Non-Latinos will be shocked, Semi-Latinos will be inspired, Authentic Latino’s will be pissed. “Growing Up Gonzales: love, lies and my first hooker”, The Stand Up Comedy Story that asks the question, what the hell happened to you? A Puerto Rican, Nuyorican, who thinks he is a Jamaican, who spends most of his time in The Dominican Republic, smoking Cubans, drinking Margaritas and listening to Beyonce takes the stage and crafts a masterful web of truths disguised by lies disguised by truths. Do not miss this!

Starring Herbie Quinones (HBO, The Apollo, Loco Slam, Latino Mix Morning Show etc…) as Cisco Gonzales.
