Alex Reymundo, one of the Original Latin Kings of Comedy, brings his Red-Nexican tour to Roswell, Thursday, at the Best Western Sally Port Inn and Suites, 2000 N. Main St., at 7:30 p.m. The Mexico-born comedian will speak on family, friends, race, and hot button issues like immigration.
â€œItâ€™s the truth and nothing but the whole truth according to me,â€ he said.
However, Reymundo promises his show is meant to produce laughs, not political discussions.
â€œIf youâ€™re brown, black, white or red, youâ€™re going to have a good time at my show,â€ he said. â€œI much rather perform in front of a crowd thatâ€™s there for comedy than go to a speech somewhere, because then youâ€™ve got people with their agendas and what theyâ€™re thinking. I think comedy audiences have kind of had enough of all of that other stuff. Itâ€™s my job to make people laugh, but if I can make them think at the same time, then Iâ€™ve done a really good job.â€
Other acts included in Thursdayâ€™s show are Rob Jenkins and Tim Schultz.
â€œThey both incorporate comedy into what theyâ€™re doing. Itâ€™s a great rounded show,â€ Reymundo said.
In addition to his stand-up, Reymundo regulary donates to charities like the Armed Forces Foundation, Lou Gehrig Foundation and St. Judeâ€™s Hospital. Reymundo finished Ron Whiteâ€™s salute to the troops tour a few weeks ago, which aired on CMT. The show drew 6 million viewers.
â€œI promise Roswell Iâ€™m going to come after them with both barrels … everybody is in for a great time. Itâ€™s all fun, and itâ€™s all in a positive light.â€
