Fernando A. Funes presents…
Piñata Party!
You know what’s the best part of ripping open a piñata? It’s all the goodies inside! You got all types of dulces, like chocolatitos, tamarindo, Skittles, lollipops, and sometimes even loose $1 bills!
Well this show is something like that! We got some of LA’s funniest Latinx comedians for a big Pachanga filled with goodies! And we’re bringing it for one night only to UCI’s Coup de Comedy Festival on Thursday, May 11
We got stand up, poetry, improv, and more!
