"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." —The Austin American Statesman
