Welcome to Comedy Now, a weekly column cataloging what comedy fans should know about what’s available in the streaming world. Whether it’s a brand new special, an old classic, or the oddball show that defies categorization, we’ll list as many as we can for your enjoyment right here. Who knows? We may even throw in a few non-streamable bits on occasion, like tour announcements from our favorite comics. You can check out last week’s column here.
Chingo Bling: They Can’t Deport Us All (Netflix)
In January, Houston-based rapper Chingo Bling brought his sold-out comedy and music tour, They Can’t Deport Us All back home for a Netflix taping. As the Houston Chronicle noted at the time, fans were to “expect” the taping to sell out as quickly as the rest of the tour, which is precisely what happened when comedians Jesus Sepulveda, Jerry Garcia, and Jon Stringer joined Bling onstage for the show. The new special, which hit Netflix on Friday, June 2nd, showcases the group’s various comedic stylings about Tex-Mex culture throughout Houston and the American Southwest via stand-up, sketches and songs.
