“He's known as ‘El Diablo’ or ‘El Amo del Sarcasmo’ — a comedian whose black humor skewers anything in his path… Escamilla also showcases his skills as both singer and guitarist by punctuating his shows with short comic songs.”
After all the acclaim and applause, 2024 marks a major milestone in Franco Escamilla’s life as a touring comedian — a full 10 YEARS of roadshow success from humble beginnings at the “Ríspida Rapsodia Regia” to yesteryear’s all-star “Festival Latino de Comedia.” And so, he’s cooking up a wildly hilarious showing of the quick and caustic wit he often exemplified in his Netflix specials “For the Anecdote,” “Welcome to the World,” “Eavesdropping,” and “Comedians of the World” to send you howling in breathless fits of laughter!
Franco Escamilla’s “1995” Show is a comically nostalgic commemoration of the titular year’s most historic events in the comedian’s trademark style of twisty, sarcastic, and sharp-tongued storytelling. As the head honcho of the infamous “La Diablo Squad,” Escamilla will beguile you with the antics you’ve come to love from his long-running “La Mesa Reñoña” YouTube series, Comedy Central’s “El Comediante del Sombrero” smash hit, and Estrella TV’s critically praised “The Franco Escamilla Show.” And if you’re reaaally lucky, he might even treat you to a little Lobo López freestyling from his debut in last year’s FMS rap league.
