She Brings The Funny

(Starts at 7:45)

When the sitcom “Cristela” was picked up by ABC in 2014, it was the first primetime comedy created, written, produced by and starring a Latina — stand-up comedian Cristela Alonzo. Though the show lasted only one season, she learned vital lessons from the experience. Alonzo joined John Horn in front of a live audience at KPCC last fall, where she performed some of her latest comedy show, “My Affordable Care Act,” and discussed her book, “Music to My Years: A Mixtape Memoir of Growing Up and Standing Up.”
