Stand-up Comedian Chingo Bling Brings His 'Puro Hustle Tour' to San Antonio

Stand-up comedian and rapper Chingo Bling brings his Puro Hustle Tour to San Antonio for four nights of laughs mostly centered on Latino culture. Born Pedro Herrera III in Houston, the Trinity University graduate took on the name Chingo Bling in 2000 and made a name for himself by performing parody versions of a number of popular songs like Drake’s “Hotline Bling” (You call me on my Cricket/Late night when you want me to kick it).

In one of his newer videos on his YouTube channel, Bling throws shade at the current administration in a song called “Chipz N’ Salsa.” In the music video, items from south of the border have been deemed contraband via executive order. Along with his stand-up, music and active presence on social media, Bling also hosts his own podcast What Did He Said? In 2015, he told the Current about his new venture into stand-up: “I feel like I’m able to give people a purer product because of the nature of the art form. It’s just a guy and a microphone. It’s a totally different experience.”
