A one-person comedy show based on comedian Erick Acuña's real life as a Peruvian Latino living in the United States. This show covers experiences from filling out an English-language medical form for the first time, to going decades without trying homemade chocolate chip cookies, to being a 14-year-old living in the middle of a war.

The show was voted as ‘Best Solo Performance’ and ‘Best of Fringe’ at Capital Fringe. It was also reviewed by NPR, DCist and Broadway World as one of the “must see” comedy shows. It has had sold out shows in Washington DC, NYC and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (UK). The show was also a finalist at the Yes, And… Laughter Lab in partnership with Comedy Central.

"It's a hit" - The Washington Post

"Top comedy show" - Voice UK
"He leaves the audience wanting more" - DC Metro Theater Arts
