Cristela Alonzo

As the first Latina to create, produce, write and star in her own U.S. primetime comedy, Cristela Alonzo is a pioneer in the entertainment industry. The San Juan, Texas-born Alonzo’s comedy is influenced by her life experiences as a first-generation American. “My mom from Mexico didn’t understand the concept of Santa Claus,” Alonzo said in her 2018 Just for Laughs comedy special Barely Catholic. “[She] tried to do Santa Claus one year for me. She’s like ‘I am Santa Claus. I did not bust my butt so this white guy takes credit for my shit. Jo-Jo-Jo! Merry Christmas!’” In 2017, Alonzo filmed her Netflix special Lower Classy in San Antonio. Now, she’s returning to bless the city once again with biting observational humor about everyday life as a Latina.
