Small Town Hoser Spic
Studio 16, 213 East 16th Ave

[dropcap]1[/dropcap]Tell us about your show.

Small Town Hoser Spic is about the struggle I face as a first generation Immigrant from a small town of less than 3,000 people. I wrestle with the feeling of not belonging to any racial culture and all of the fallout that happens. I swear a lot, drink with the audience, eat with the audience and talk about how growing up in a town, where I was one of four Latinos and then moving to a big city with an actual (although small) Latino community has left me feeling as though I am a ‘poser’ Latino.

[dropcap]2[/dropcap]Why should someone come see your show?

Folks should come see my show if they are not afraid to engage with someone who is revealing deep inner thoughts and truths about racism, teenage drinking and about how even with the best of intentions our parents can really fuck us up.

[dropcap]3[/dropcap]If your show was a superhero which superhero what would it be, and why?

I hate to admit it but I would say Superman, He’s an alien (immigrant), moved from a small town into the big city, and my costume will almost be all blue. More Canadian tuxedo than spandex though.

[dropcap]4[/dropcap]If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, besides your own, what show would that be?

I would have to say Human Being; I love the description and its themes may feed my own shows themes.

The 2015 Vancouver Fringe Festival runs September 10-20 on Granville Island and stages around town. Visit http://vancouverfringe.com for tickets and information.
