Best Comedic Argument Against Gentrification

Latino Comedy Project

The Latino Comedy Project, lying doggo since 2005's superhero-skewering Los Abengers show, recently returned to the live comedy stage with Gentrifucked, shining a much-needed brown comic light on what rampant development and clueless Anglo hipsterism have wrought in Austin's historically Hispanic neighborhoods. Cat cafes, mondo condominiums, relentless cultural bleaching and all its ramifications – all of it, darkly sliced to laugh-inducing ribbons on La Raza's edge as Adrian Villegas and his crew make their sketch-powered stand against the madness.
