Meeting with a Star
Greetings, Yesterday afternoon I had a very exciting day, I met the great Paul Rodriguez. A very talented comedian who is one of the Latin Kings of comedy. I remember first seeing him in a hilarious movie called, "Born in East L.A." starring Cheech Marin, when I was about 11 years old.
Our show called, "LLEGAMOS" (we've arrived) got in interview with him and I, being a cast member of the show, tagged along.
We entered the Laugh Factory in Time Square, which I have never been in. What a big place. I hope to play there one day soon. We were seated in the main area, where their was a big stage with a neon backdrop that said, "Laugh Factory" illuminated. The crew busied themselves with setting up lights and camera while I sat on stage under the hot lights pretending to be famous. Then right on time, in walks Paul. He looked at ease and in shape and gave us 20 min more than we asked.
He spoke of many things, among them the late great Freddie Prince Sr. and the comedy of Cantinflas, the Mexican Chaplin. I never knew that Paul served in the U.S. Airforce and also that his son has won Gold in the X-games for skateboarding. All in all it was a very interesting conversation which will be airing in a few weeks on LTV (Latin Television) so check your listings.
My boss and host of the show was very please because Paul anointed him a "Sir" of comedy. Now we won't hear the end of that one for at least 3 to 4 weeks.
Well, thank God its Friday, I got a paycheck from my day job and can eat again, lol. Their are many facts I haven't revealed yet because I'm not sure if I want to remain anonymous. Perhaps this blog will be more intriguing that way.
With that said - Until next time - God Speed.
