The Totally Fake Latino News, Episode 4

Support Provided By

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 as part of La Jolla Playhouse’s acclaimed Without Walls (WOW) program, a series of digitally-delivered productions.


Title of Work: The Totally Fake Latino News, Episode 4: "Episode Noir"
Presented By: Culture Clash
Originally Presented: July 10, 2020
Edited By: Pablo Prietto
Curated By: Ric Salinas
Comissioned By: La Jolla Playhouse WOW

Episode Noir finds the lads breaking form and a few rules of their own, stretching into surprising areas of shadow and light. The boys pay homage to the creator of Culture Clash Mr. Rene Yanez as well as their love of film noir, plus important shout outs of love, respect and solidarity to Portland, San Pancho's Mission District, Chula Vista y Tijuana loco! 

Stay Safe, wear your taco on your face y que Viva LJP & WOW!
