Ugh. The information in the show is mostly interesting but his "comedic style", the unfunny and sometimes ableist or sexist jokes, the immature delivery of them... These are just not appropriate for this topic. The "comedy" is bad. Real bad. I will look into the books he mentions in the show and read them instead of watching the second half of this. I suggest the same for everyone.

Latin History for Morons: John Leguizamo's Road to Broadway captures John's quest to cram 3,000 years of history into 90 minutes of stage time and bring a whole new set of historical characters back to life as one man. Infused throughout the documentary is John's special brand of humor and openness.

Interesting Content Cringeworthy DeliveryReviewed byasliyaseminbaharVote: 5/10
There are nuggets of truth in the show, but the vast majority of it serves no useful purpose and further inflames social tension in America. I can't at all recommend.
I'm not quite sure why there are all these people saying this was "awkward". If you want a history lesson you can watch a history show or read a book. John provides an entertaining take on the history of Latin Americans. It's a mixture of comedy and dramatic interpretation.
In contrast to your standard punchline stand-up comedian shows on Netflix, this was a welcomed break from the norm. It's a one-man play and was quite entertaining. There's no doubt that it's artistic interpretation and in it he exposes the challenges he faces as a parent and his frustration/obsession with the maligned history Latin Americans have been given.
Yes, you can read Howard Zinn's classic book, and I highly recommend it. But if you prefer dramatic interpretation, this was an entertaining approach!
