So many of us who are mixed race or first-generation don't fit neatly into one box on a census form, so let's make our own f**king box! La Mezcla is a cool-as-hell variety show featuring mixed race and first-generation American artists based in NYC.
Mixed and First-Gen people often feel that they are "ni de aqui ni de alla" (not from here and not from there). This show celebrates the voices of anyone who comes from multiple cultures and struggles to reconcile them with this weird thing we live in called America. We've got standup, characters, poetry, dance, music, film, and much more!
Hosted by Peruvian-American comedian Adrián Burke (La Mezcla Podcast, got cut out of a sketch on 50 Cent's short-lived sketch show 50 Central).
