The LCP returns with an encore presentation of El Channel, their newest full-length original sketch comedy show, unlike anything you've seen from them before – with all-new sketches added!
Dysfunctional divas and celebrity goats. A right-wing militia-man on a mission. An intern program with a 100% fatality rate. Dis-organized crime. A doomed attempt at "tweeny-bopper" entertainment. And much, much more. It can all be seen on El Channel, a tv station which re-defines the meaning of “on the border.”

Media, pop-culture, and parody collide as we go behind the scenes for a look at the inner workings of the most legendarily disaster-prone television station on the airwaves. El Channel introduces a universe of new and unforgettable characters, along with the LCP's fast-paced whirlwind assault on the absurdities of politics, pop culture and the world of entertainment. Don't miss this bitingly hilarious stage and video extravaganza from The LCP! “Tune in…and watchalĂ©!”

The LCP’s immigration-themed spoof of the film 300 became a breakout viral video hit on, where it has since amassed over five million views. To date, the LCP’s YouTube videos have received almost ten million views worldwide. The LCP cast also co-wrote and were featured in an MTV3 comedy ad campaign which was nominated for a 2009 Emmy Award.

The LCP, called "hilarious" and "murderously funny" by the San Francisco Chronicle, has toured to colleges and theaters nationwide and been featured at internationally renowned Sketch Fests in Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, and Vancouver, British Columbia. The LCP has performed alongside such national acts as comedians Fred Willard, Carlos Mencia, Gabriel Iglesias, Pablo Francisco and Rob Corddry of "The Daily Show," among others.

The Latino Comedy Project writers and performers are LCP Artistic Director Adrian Villegas, Sandy Avila-Ramirez, Vanessa Gonzalez, Guillermo De Leon, Nick Rosales, Javier Smith, Danu Uribe, Kristofer Walker, and Nick Walker.

So prepare yourself for an exciting and hilarious night of irreverent, fast-paced comedy from a distinctly Latino point of view. They're bad. They're brown. They're the Latino Comedy Project.
