Hollywood Desperado: Rebel or Royalty is an inspirational true story of Jaime Monroy, who, like most of us, has a dream. Struggling to fit in, he becomes determined to stand out! As a street smart fearless kid from the barrio of East Los Angeles, he uses his head and heart to seek fame and fortune in the bright lights of Hollywood. This Latino boy next door makes his own breaks at age 16 by day, handing out tickets to television show tapings in front of Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theatre. By early evening, parking cars for legendary comedians at the Friar's Club in Beverly Hills, and late at night, answering phones and separating the mail for Hollywood Screen Legend Mae West. Still under age, he paints in a mustache as a disguise to emcee at the Playboy Club, while Playboy bunnies protect the young teen comedian from drunk hecklers. Jaime Monroy cultivates a style to do ordinary things in an extraordinary way. He knows what he wants and goes for it with an all or nothing conviction...
Behind every dream there is a Desperado in you!
