Teatro Vivo presents Pulga Nation, a new full-length sketch comedy show performed by comedy troupe, Mexcentrics. Showcasing a vibrant cast in a series of original sketches, Pulga Nation offers a hilarious look at the Latino phenomenon known as La Pulga (the flea market).|
Veteran writers Omar Gallaga and Raul Garza crafted Pulga Nation much in the style of its namesake, relying on a tart mix of English, Spanish, and Spanglish. They fearlessly skewer Latinos' mysterious attraction to the Pulga's organ meats, religious articles, outdated electronics, and quinceañera dresses. But that's just the tip of the "raspa."
Beyond the site-specific comedy of the crumbling Pulga, Pulga Nation delivers sharp social commentary and unforgettable characters like the Pulga's mero-mero (kingpin), La Haggler, and several proud Pulgueros (pulga shop owners), resulting in a sweetly irreverent look at a true cultural icon.
