“Trump is after us!” comedian Jesus Sepulveda said last year on Chingo Bling’s Netflix special They Can’t Deport Us All. “Half my family’s freaking the fuck out. My dad is watching CNN every day — ‘Chinga su madre! We gotta fight back! The Trump won!’”

Sepulveda and fellow Latino comedians Jerry Garcia and Jose Sarduy are combining their powers and are ready to throw some chingazos on stage at the Empire Theatre as The Undeportables, a catchy team name they should trademark now before Marvel beats them to it.

The trio will share the stage for a night of humor touching on everything from immigration to the border wall. Along with the Netflix special, Sepulveda starred last fall on the HBO Latino show Entre Nos. Garcia, who was named Best Comedian at the San Diego Comedy Festival in 2016, was also featured on the same special. Sarduy, a military veteran, starred on two seasons of Fox TV’s Laughs as a performer and host.

We’re not sure what other topics The Undeportables will cover, but we’re guessing they’ll take as many shots at Trump as they can. How do you say porn star in Español?

$25, Fri Apr 6, 8pm, Charline McCombs Empire Theatre, 226 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 226-3333,
