Latin Comedy King coming to Roswell, Thursday

March 30, 2011 • Local News

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.

“It’s the truth and nothing but the whole truth according to me,” he said.

However, Reymundo promises his show is meant to produce [auth] laughs, not political discussions.

“If you’re brown, black, white or red, you’re going to have a good time at my show,” he said. “I much rather perform in front of a crowd that’s there for comedy than go to a speech somewhere, because then you’ve got people with their agendas and what they’re thinking. I think comedy audiences have kind of had enough of all of that other stuff. It’s my job to make people laugh, but if I can make them think at the same time, then I’ve done a really good job.”

Other acts included in Thursday’s show are Rob Jenkins and Tim Schultz.

“They both incorporate comedy into what they’re doing. It’s a great rounded show,” Reymundo said.

In addition to his stand-up, Reymundo regulary donates to charities like the Armed Forces Foundation, Lou Gehrig Foundation and St. Jude’s Hospital. Reymundo finished Ron White’s salute to the troops tour a few weeks ago, which aired on CMT. The show drew 6 million viewers.

“I promise Roswell I’m going to come after them with both barrels … everybody is in for a great time. It’s all fun, and it’s all in a positive light.”
