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

Awesome delivery!

I'm not quite sure why there are all these people saying this was "awkward". If you want a history lesson you can watch a history show or read a book. John provides an entertaining take on the history of Latin Americans. It's a mixture of comedy and dramatic interpretation.

In contrast to your standard punchline stand-up comedian shows on Netflix, this was a welcomed break from the norm. It's a one-man play and was quite entertaining. There's no doubt that it's artistic interpretation and in it he exposes the challenges he faces as a parent and his frustration/obsession with the maligned history Latin Americans have been given.

Yes, you can read Howard Zinn's classic book, and I highly recommend it. But if you prefer dramatic interpretation, this was an entertaining approach!
