This Latina Is Killing The Standup Game With Her Mom Jokes, Weight Jokes And Everything In Between

Cristela Alonzo’s new stand-up comedy special “Lower Classy”, released January 24 on Netflix, is making people laugh until they cry. In her interview with Build Series, Cristela talks about the main theme of her special:


I called the special “Lower Classy” because I like talking about the difference in social class. I wanted to talk about the difference in my life and where I came from so that people know that people like me exist. I think it’s important to teach in a funny way because you don’t sound insulting, you don’t come off aggressive, you’re not condescending, you’re just speaking your truth.

Not only was Cristela’s show meant to entertain, but to show a part of her life that other people could connect with. Here are a few reasons why “Lower Classy” is so hilariously relatable:

Cristela starts the show with straightforward comments about our current president:

Because who can avoid talking about politics these days?

She keeps it real about issues of race and skin color.

It’s this combination of humor and ridicule that makes her standup show so great.

And isn’t shy about dropping the truth:

Heck yeah she went there.

She’s super honest about the struggle of getting old.??

She can’t be the only woman in her 30’s that still tries to go clubbing.??

Which comes with the struggle of trying to work out and stay in shape.

It doesn’t get worse than being too fat to fit into workout clothes. ?

Annnnd the struggle of trying to eat healthy.

It’s no wonder diets are so difficult — healthy food is so damn expensive!

Cristela keeps the show going with jokes about her family, especially her mom.

Her mom is too funny!! ?

Like the time she tried to ask her mom for an allowance:

*emphasis on ALLOW* LOL

But it turned out that her mom had already given her many allowances…?

So if your parents didn’t grow up with an allowance, chances are neither did you.

With the title of her standup being “Lower Classy,” Cristela gives everyone her definition of what it’s like to be RICH.???

SO TRUE!! ? This is perhaps the realest, and funniest definition of what it means to be rich.

From jokes about her family, to money, and day-to-day struggles, lots of people were able to relate to Cristela on so many levels.


Which is what makes her show 100x more entertaining.

There’s no doubt that Cristela’s “Lower Classy” is turning people’s frowns upside down. ?


Nothing better than a funny comedian after a long, rough day. ??

So if you’re looking for a comedy special that will give you a mix of tears and laughter, “Lower Classy” is definitely the way to go.


Check it out on Netflix! ??

Richard Ramirez, a.k.a. The Night Stalker, spent the summer of 1985 terrorizing Los Angeles. Ramirez murdered 13 people during his reign of terror in Southern California. Netflix’s new docuseries is exploring the crime by interviewing law enforcement and family of the victims.

“Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial” killer is now streaming on Netflix.

“Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer” is the latest Netflix docuseries diving into the true crimes that have shaped American society. Richard Ramirez is one of the most prolific serial killers of all time and single-handedly terrorized Los Angeles during the summer of 1985.

Ramirez fundamentally changed Los Angeles and the people who live there. The serial killer was an opportunistic killer. He would break into homes using unlocked doors and opened windows. Once inside, he would rape, murder, rob, and assault the people inside the home.

The documentary series explores just how Ramirez was able to keep law enforcement at bay for so long. The killer did not have a standard modus operandi. His victims ran the gamut of gender, age, and race. There was no indicator as to who could be next. He also rarely used the same weapon when killing his victims. Some people were stabbed to death while others were strangled and others still were bludgeoned.

While not the first telling of Ramirez’s story, it is the most terrifying account to date.

“Victims ranged in age from 6 to 82,” director Tiller Russell told PEOPLE. “Men, women, and children. The murder weapons were wildly different. There were guns, knives, hammers, and tire irons. There was this sort of feeling that whoever you were, that anybody could be a victim and anybody could be next.”

Family members of the various victims speak in the documentary series about learning of the horror committed to them. People remember grandparents and neighbors killed by Ramirez. All the while, police followed every lead to make sure they left no stone unturned.

“Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer” is now streaming on Netflix.

Exes Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato Are Playing Soulmates in Netflix’s Animated Movie Charming and Talk About Awkward

Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato don’t let a little thing like emotional baggage get in the way of their careers. The famous former couple proved that exes can actually be friends when they worked together on the new Netflix animated movie, “Charming”, that premiered on Friday.

Not only did Lovato and Valderrama co-star in the children’s movie together, but they played lovers. And not just lovers, but soulmates.

It looks like Lovato and Valderrama truly decided to remain friendly and supportive of each other after their breakup in 2016. Which in itself is a rarity!

In “Charming”, Valderrama voices a spoiled Prince who is “cursed” to have every woman fall in love-at-first sight with him until his 21st birthday.

When the project was announced in 2015, Valderrama was extremely excited about the opportunity to represent greater diversity in a children’s movie. “We’ve all been waiting so long to see a Latin princess represented in an animated fairy tale,” he told Deadline. “I’m grateful to the enlightened producer John Williams for anointing me as the first Latin prince.”

Lovato plays a Lenore, a savvy street urchin who is also cursed to never find love. Together, the unlikely duo are tasked with going on a quest to break Charming’s curse so he can save the kingdom.

When discussing their previous relationship in the past, Lovato and Valderrama have been nothing but gracious.

In fact, Demi Lovato recently told Harper’s Bazaar that she’s happy for Valderrama and his new fiancée, Amanda Pacheco. “I’m really happy for him and I wish him nothing but the best, but we’re not in each other’s lives, haven’t spoken in a long time,” she admitted.

She continued: “But I think I needed that because I needed to learn to be okay on my own. When you get into a relationship with somebody at that young of an age and then you spend six years with somebody, you don’t really get to learn about yourself.”

When Lovato has talked about the reasons behind their split before, she’s always maintained that it had “nothing to do with falling out of love”.

“The sparks never faded, but there are issues that I haven’t conquered yet that I know I won’t conquer if I’m relying on somebody else to take care of the loneliness,” said Lovato in her 2017 documentary, “Simply Complicated”.

But Lovato and Valderrama aren’t the only reason to queue up this flick. The movie also stars Ashley Tisdale as Cinderella, Avril Lavigne as Snow White, and Chinese popstar phenomenon G.E.M. as Sleeping Beauty.
