Year of the Dragon? Naaah! 2024 is gonna be the Year of the Devil if Franco “El Diablo” Escamilla has something to say and believe us, he has quite a few choice tales to tell. This year, the legendary Latino comedian closes his acclaimed global “Gaby” Tour with a bang by announcing a new nationwide series of performances to bookend a DECADE of sold-out roadshows. This highly anticipated run will see the stand-up star in 36 cities all over the United States, including an appearance on May 10 LIVE at the Arizona Financial Theatre.
From 2014’s “Ríspida Rapsodia Regia” to last year’s “Festival Latino de Comedia,” Franco Escamilla has been one of the HOTTEST names in stand-up circuits, and if you didn’t know that, then get ready for one helluva ride! The founding father of the renowned “La Diablo Squad” will entertain you with devilishly delightful stories smoking with sarcasm — a style he’s been sharpening to a deadly point in his “La Mesa Reñoña” YouTube series, Estrella TV’s “The Franco Escamilla Show,” and Comedy Central’s “El Comediante del Sombrero.”
“His unique comedic style is rough, biting, and seasoned with a healthy dose of dark humor. In his new show, he will take us through the most important, funny, and impactful events that happened during 1995, in a way only Franco can, with anecdotes, facts, and an unexpected twist.”
The “1995” Show will be a no-holds-barred throwback to the titular year — a sort of twisted CliffsNotes version of its biggest events set in Escamilla’s personal anecdotes packed full of edgy punchlines and surprising turns. Candid. Hilarious. Unashamed. Our headliner has learned a lot from creating beloved Netflix specials such as “Welcome to the World,” “For the Anecdote,” and “Eavesdropping,” so expect nothing less than world-class stand-up thrown square in your face!
