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!

Leguizamo takes us to school!

Equal parts performance art, stand-up routine and history lesson, the whole performance is him trying to find a cultural hero for his son to look up to by navigating the darkest chapters of American history. Leguizamo is absolutely brilliant as an every-man who thrusts himself into the unfamiliar role of a scholar, who strives to better his own knowledge of the past for the sake of his son's future, which makes HIM the hero in my book. 10/10 Stars, What a triumph!

Brutally funny and bittersweet and inspiring!

I cannot articulate how fantastic this was. Educational, funny, emotional, and inspiring. John Leguizamo's honesty and humility makes his storytelling that much more captivating. Seeing this has inspired me to be more proactive in learning about my history.

I can honestly say that I hadn't known about the books that he mentioned, but this special has definitely made them next on my reading list! You can see a whole list of books he refers to if you go to the webpage for Latin History for Morons! Next up on my reading list: A People's History of the United States.

Thank you, John!
