Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing can prepare you for the incredible world of Culture Clash or for their first ever collection of their best. This three-person troupe of writers/performers is unique in the American landscape for its imaginative explorations of contemporary Latino/Chicano culture. Clashing with a society in transition, Culture Clash physicalizes comedy and satire, paying homage to Charlie Chaplin, Lenny Bruce, the Marx Brothers, and Catinflas, using vaudeville as a political weapon.<P>Contents include: The Mission, in which three out-of-work performers from San Francisco's Mission District kidnap Julio Iglesias in a desperate attempt to get nationwide exposure for their act; A Bowl of Beings, which includes the tale of the first Hispanic — Christopher Columbus's illegitimate son; "Stand and Deliver Pizza", the story of the famous math teacher who recruits young Chicanos to work in his pizza parlor; and Radio Mambo, wherein Culture Clash invades Miami to uncover a stewing pot of ethnicity, creating "a work that's as shrewd, vibrant, and outrageous as Miami itself", according to Time Out New York.

Synopsis:

First collection from the Latino/Chicano trio Culture Clash.
