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! ??

This Man Posts A Video Highlighting Mexican ‘Avatar The Last Airbender’ Characters And It’s So Accurate

Who here loves “Avatar The Last Airbender”? It is one show that has been around for so long that the fanbase can only grow. The show is a fantasy ride that will take you to some of the most imaginative places. However, one fan realized something no one else did: some of the characters are Mexicans. Here’s what he found.

Roku

Roku, a.k.a. “El Espiritu,” is one of the Mexicanos rocking it in the Fire Nation. Roku’s memory served as a guiding force for Aang along his long and storied journey. It is like that one compa you have who is always able to help you out of a jam. You never know how he will do it but he always does.

Sokka

You might know Sokka as the defacto leader of the Water Nation for a time. When he was younger, Sokka wanted to join his father in the war. He tried his best and left with all of the men to join the fight. However, he was too young to fight and was sent back but was the oldest male and became the leader of the tribe. Much like that primo we all have who is the oldest of the primos and teaches us everything. Where would we be without that primo?

Zuko

Zuko was born into the royal family of the Fire Nation. The prince abdicated his throne and lived in exile. For years, Zuko tried his best to catch the long-lost Avatar to get back into his kingdom. We all know that one friend that is trying to make up for something. At the end of the day, he is a good dude but he just has some things that he has to work out.

“Avatar the Last Airbender” fans are asking for more.

There are so many more people that can be made into Mexican airbenders. The first three are already a success for the TikTok user with more than 234,000 views. Fans want more and it just seems like the perfect time to create more.

And it wasn’t just the setup.

The TikTok user came through with his joke. Not only was the haircut so on point, he included a bunch of easter eggs. One of them was the América jersey that left some viewers screaming. Watch the video here and enjoy.
