John Leguizamo on his special "A Latin History for Morons"

John Leguizamo is a super-famous actor who's been in well over 100 movies and TV shows. You probably know him from his work in films such as Carlito's Way, The Pest, To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar and the Ice Age franchise of movies.

His resume is impressive enough but John's also a writer whose created and starred in a handful of powerful, hilarious one-man shows over his career.

There was his debut production titled, Mambo Mouth, in which he played a total of seven different characters on the stage — compiled and composited from people in his past. They're all deeply personal. Touching and hilarious, too: Leguizamo finds a way to talk about himself and the people in his life - sometimes channel those people - with a remarkably sensitive touch.

John's latest show is called Latin History for Morons. The title kind of explains the show's conceit: with a chalkboard and a professor-y looking suit, Leguizamo gives the audience a history of the Americas that you don't always see in textbooks: stories of oppression, exploitation, disease and war.
But, since it's John Leguizamo… there are dozens of funny voices, recreations of historical figures long-since dead. And it all begins with a story about Leguizamo's life: a few years back, his son was bullied over his latinx heritage at school. Leguizamo wanted to do something about it. Give him something to be proud of.

John talks to Bullseye about that incident in the show - how it happened, how it affected his son, and how it affected him.

Latin History for Morons is streaming now on Netflix.

You can get tickets for the live show here.

| 0 comments

Look, the title ain’t lying, and you’d have no way of proving it if it were. One of us has seen every bird, full stop. We’re the new high score on the birdwatcher leaderboard, and who’s gonna argue against that? The birds? Probably not the birds.

Suggested talking points: Spookily, Raccoon Trash Strats (feat. John Hodgman), Dickbilled Priebus, Freakied and Fridayed, Ammunition for the Soda Wars

The Greatest Generation DS9 Ep 283: The Work of Idiots (DS9 S5E9)

| 0 comments

When Odo finally gets an excuse to remand Quark into Federation custody, he’s remarkably incurious about whether the bartender is even guilty. But when an Orion bomb strands them on Planet Yosemite, the old adversaries will come to form a bond that only camping can forge. What kind of discipline does Jake have? Is shrapnel redundant in a runabout bomb? Would capitalism have forced Jake and Nog to work things out? It’s the episode that gets us all pruny.

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Dr. Darcy Lockman

Biz and Theresa explore the limits of our power as parents. Kids have pretty big ideas about what we can do and it's a life lesson learned that we can’t take them to Ancient Egypt to dine with cats. But what about the more realistic needs and wishes we can’t meet, like that must have outfit, guitar lessons, or that birthday gift they really want? How does all this crushing disappointment make us feel? Hint: Not the best. Plus, nature comes to Biz, Theresa has too much on her brain and we talk to clinical psychologist Darcy Lockman about the Myth of Equal Partnership. It's a doozy of a show.

Follow Dr. Darcy Lockman on Twitter @Darcy_Lockman and on her website Darcylockman.com. Her book All The Rage: Mothers, Fathers, and the Myth of Equal Partnership is available now.

There’s only one surprisingly proportioned beef sandwich capable of stitching up the wide wounds carved across human civilization; and we’re the ones to invent it. (Not cook it, mind you. Good lord, we cannot fathom how to go about cooking Longburger. God, the logistics are dizzying.)

Suggested talking points: Mars 2113, Moon Germany, Oops All Croutons!, Great Sturg’ Spots, Haunted House Acting, Morgue Benefits, The Longburger
