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.

The penultimate EP V as in CINCO has the men of CC returning to their funny pants, though their brand of political satire is never too far away. A loving tribute to their mums, daughters and bad cholo films of the 1980s, EP V will have you in stitches, which is just what their group therapist ordered!
