Storyline

Latin History for Morons: John Leguizamo's Road to Broadway captures John's quest to cram 3,000 years of history into 90 minutes of stage time and bring a whole new set of historical characters back to life as one man. Infused throughout the documentary is John's special brand of humor and openness. The road to his ultimate goal - his next Broadway hit - unfolds in a fun, intriguing, and poignant adventure that not only offers an intimate look into the journey of a passionate artist, but also shines a light on the rarely-told stories of Latino heroes who made their mark on America. Featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the one-man show taking shape, the film follows John's riveting process - from his early inspirations and research, to his first-ever comedy club tour, through workshops of the show - before culminating in performances at the historic Public Theater as he aims for a Broadway run. Along the way, John navigates the challenges of writing (and re-writing) history... Written by Diamante Content

History for real
5 November 2018 | by barob-51973See all my reviews

I'm a white southern boy who witnessed firsthand the genius of John Leguizamo at Raleigh's Goodnight's comedy club. He told us that night he was testing the material for this special. What a truly funny and eye opening quasi lecture he presented. Incredibly entertaining, funny, and informative. Props to Leguizamo on another amazing performance. I highly recommend for anyone, especially some of the more ignorant white MAGA supporters out there (you know who you are)!
