You are thinking, what’s this? Well ENTRE NOS is a title we have mentioned often in our monthly “What’s On” posting and if you watch HBO Latino you certainly are familiar with the title. ENTRE NOS is a long-standing stand-up comedy show. Think of HBO HALF-HOUR COMEDY HOUR with Latino artists. Wel that show has had a little competition going and the winners of the stand-up contest are showcased in ENTRE NOS: THE WINNERS. It debuted on HBO Latino channel on 06.19 and still can be found there, plus on HBO (formally HBONow) and HBO Max.
I mention it here because its debut was announced well after the June “What’s On” posting. Here is a portion of an HBO press release announcing the special.
The winners of the “Latinos Stand-Up!” comedy competition – Mark Viera and Alex Carabaño – take center stage in this new edition of the stand-up comedy special. ENTRE NOS: THE WINNERS. It features the two comedians who won a stand-up comedy competition held in conjunction with the New York Latino Film Festival, with Viera and Carabaño coming out on top. In these sets, Viera talks about our smartphone life vs. “the beeper life” of his younger days, getting in trouble from innocent social media posts, and the “delete delete box,” while Carabaño shares anecdotes about being short, astrology and dating, and having a family that doubted his heterosexuality. Let these two winners win you over in this exclusive comedy special.
This is an edition of HBO Latino’s “Entre Nos” comedy shows all available on HBO digital platforms including HBO Max. Entre Nos, parts one and two premiered in 2017; Entre Nos, parts three and four, as well as “Entre Nos: The Series,” and “Orlando Leyba: Adorable in 2018,” “Entre Nos: Spot On,” “Jerry Garcia: It’s Not My Weekend,” “Entre Nos: Gina Brillon: Easily Offended,” “Entre Nos Presents: Erik Rivera: Super White” and “Entre Nos Presents: Nick Guerra: Love Me At My Worst.”
Stay tuned for more details on the 2nd annual ‘Latinos Stand-Up!’ annual comedy competition.
