HOUSE OF BUGGIN- Funny before it's time.
30 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was so happy when House of Buggin was first introduced on Television. It was great to see another Latino comedy show that I truly enjoyed and haven't been so proud to see a Latino comedian since Fredy Prinze on Chico and the Man. I haven't seen these shows on DVD, but I would be the first in line to purchase them. I was smart enough back in 1995 to record these shows. Now my teenage daughters have enjoyed them and we quote the shows all the time. These shows brought more laughter into our home. House of Buggin was truly on the edge. The characters were hilarious. Even though John Legizamo made fun of our heritage, it was tastefully done and the best thing he brought out was the fact that as Latinos, we make fun of ourselves all the time which made it real. I would recommend them to anyone. I say GOOD job John, your are truly a TALENT! BRAVO!
