UrbanoTV: Laughing in Spanglish

Submitted by on August 26, 2010 – 8:14 am2 Comments

UrbanoTV is coming soon.

Click the headline link to see the two UrbanoTV videos.

The actor and comedian John Leguizamo will next month launch a video site for Latinos called UrbanoTV. The promotional material says it is like YouTube meets Hulu meets Blogspot meets Flickr — with a touch of cilantro and adobo.

I’ve been hanging around over there, uploading some of our Tiki Tiki videos and watching original Urbano TV shows.  My favorite original is Palabras, which is quickies on words and Spanish dichos by a funny woman named Mariela. (You guys know how much I love dichos!) There’s also a show called Cocotazos, which is all about how we’ve survived la chancla and the cocotazo.

Now, I love a good chancla story, but I’m not too sure about that Cocotazo show, though, because some of the cocotazos featured would get parents arrested today. And hey, if you survived enough cocotazos to need a little therapy, remember the Tiki Tiki has its own in-house therapist: La Comadre…just saying.

Anywa, here are two fun UrbanoTV Palabras shows for you to watch, with a reminder to bookmark UrbanoTV.

Maleta in one country does not mean suitcase in another.
