This year, celebrate May The Fourth and Cinco De Mayo with Emmy-nominated sketch group The Latino Comedy Project in a comedy fiesta set “not long ago, in a barrio just around the way…”

This is not your fanboy’s Star Wars.

In ¡Estar Guars!: A May The Fourth/Cinco De Mayo Comedy Fiesta, The Latino Comedy Project asks the question: What would Star Wars have looked like if George Lucas had been JORGE Lucas?

In a loving homage of live comedy, original videos and visual spectacle, ¡Estar Guars! re-creates the classic sci-fi rebellion as a modern-day Resistencia, complete with Galactic Walls, space chanclas, migrant moisture farmers, fearless princesas, mystical abuelas and the targeting of Sanctuary Planetas by an evil empire determined to MAGGA (Make A Galaxy Great Again).

They're all here: Luke, La Princesa Leia Organa-Cortez, Tio Juan Kenobi, Yola, R2Me2, Darth Vendido, ICE Troopers and more!

In an encore of last year's popular sold-out run, ¡Estar Guars!: A May The Fourth/Cinco De Mayo Comedy Fiesta promises a one-of-a-kind live multimedia comedy show full of high adventure, swashbuckling duels, and adorable furry brown creatures speaking in exotic alien tongues - like Spanglish! (This show is performed mostly in English with some Spanglish and is rated PG-13.)

Written and directed by LCP Artistic Director Adrian Villegas ("Gentrif*cked," "Barrio Daze"), the “¡Estar Guars!” cast of performers also includes: Cindy Brio (“¡Escándalo!: The Improvised Bilingual Telenovela,” “Mischief Managed”), Jason Andrew Castro ( "Soundstage 23, Things You Love, The Musical!," "F*** It's Christmas"), Laura Galán Wells (“¡Escándalo!,” “Alpha Quest,“ “The Darkness”), Andy Gonzalez-Bendiksen (“¡Escándalo!,” “Barney Miller: Dark Knight”), John Johnston, Adrian Lopez ("The Velvet Sky," "Rosa Blanca"), Barbara H. Mojica (“Enfrascada,” “MX: 499 Los Hijos del Aguila”), Nick Walker (“Gentrif*cked”) and Elowen Wells (“Hope.”)


ABOUT THE LATINO COMEDY PROJECT

The Latino Comedy Project is an Emmy-nominated sketch troupe known for its political and pop culture satire in full-length, award-winning multimedia shows. The LCP’s YouTube comedy videos have amassed over 14 million views worldwide. The LCP cast also developed, wrote and starred in an MTV3 comedy branding campaign for which the group received an Emmy nomination.

The LCP's most recent critically-acclaimed sketch show “Gentrif*cked” enjoyed sold-out runs from Texas to California, receiving “Best Of Austin” recognition by Austin Chronicle critics.

The San Francisco Chronicle hailed the LCP as “hilarious” and “murderously funny.” The Austin Chronicle called the LCP "Hysterical...Snappy writing, immaculate timing, and an animated cast." The Austin American-Statesman said of the LCP, "Bitingly original sketch comedy is alive and well and Latin."

Check out a few of the LCP’s pop-culture mash-ups and comedy videos: Port-A-Border, Transmorfers, Accordion Hero, Gentrification, Explained, 300, and Los Abengers.

They’re bad. They’re brown. They're The Latino Comedy Project.
