Loved this show!
18 June 2004 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

John Leguizamo is an amazing and under-rated talent. This show was so funny I was laughing out loud. Having now lived in Europe for three years, I am reminded on each visit home, how bland and "cookie cutter"

  • esque American TV was/is. I think many people were put-off by having


a Latino-based show, and House of Buggin' never really got the chance it deserved. Maybe a lot of people didn't "get" the jokes.

Although I liked In Living Color, there were many skits that I found too slapstick and childish. (I still don't understand how Jim Carrey got to where his is today.)House of Buggin' was a wonderful showcase for John Leguizamo's talent.
