The Totally Fake Latino News, Episode 1
Southland Sessions Presents: From high school operas and drive-thru art exhibitions to Chicano comedies and underground DJ sets — we are showcasing the vibrancy of arts and culture across our city today.
The Totally Fake Latino News is a bi-weekly comedy sketch series from performance troupe Culture Clash. Culture Clash offers 10-minute doses of levity, poetics and payasadas (clowning), from their homes and streets of SoCal and beyond. Watch them chronicle the isolation, joys and gut wrenching response to protests on the nations streets against police brutality as they stand in fierce support for Black Lives Matter. Their fake news exists in a pandemic-ready format and can be very real.
