Generation LatinX

Generation LatinX We are Latin and we make comedy in English and Spanish weekly live on stage as well as through digitally sketches biweekly on social media. Some of the performers speak fluent Spanish, some speak only Spanglish, and some speak no Spanish at all.

All of our performers have Hispanic heritage. We, are Generation LatinX!

"Because of the brutalizing and killing of black people at the hands of the police and the indifference of society in general and the criminal justice system in particular, it is important that we say 'Black Lives Matter' "
- Patricia Leary

Black Lives Matter is a powerful and influential movement for justice and empathy. Franchesca debunks some of these toxic myths and sheds light on the true goals of this movement.

Generation LatinX

In solidarity with our BIPOC ensemble members, we decided to pull our series from all of The iO Comedy Network platforms and will release it at a future date on our own social media pages. #BlackLivesMatter

We've been racking our brains for the perfect image and the perfect thing to say, but we finally realize that we've been completely overthinking it because it's incredibly simple. 
Black Lives Matter. Period.

Check out the latest season of Generación Latinx at iO Chicago Sundays at 8p now through the end of July. We promise to be more authentically Latin than these Pennsylvania ...tacos?

The city of Warren would like to announce the city’s very first taco truck. It will be serving lunch for downtown employees starting tomorrow. Throughout the week it will set up at different local factories and even near the courthouse periodically. We hope everyone has a chance to enjoy this fantastic food.

Ruperto Gloria

Ruperto was born in the provincial town of Matehuala, San Luis Potosi in Mexico. He moved to Chicago in 2007 to break the monotony of living in Texas most of his life. Ruperto wanted to fill his life with merriment and mirth after a traumatic Dear John letter received on Christmas of 2014, so this shy little boy from a rural upbringing started honing his improvisational skills at The Second City Training Center - Chicago, iO Chicago, Annoyance Theatre & Bar, and Madrid. Ruperto is overjoyed to be a member of Generation LatinX!
