(Repost) 6/7/17 O&A NYC WILDIN OUT WEDNESDAY: John Leguizamo is Manny The Fanny (1992)

wildin out wednesday


John Leguizamo is Manny the Fanny, a transgender Latina living and surviving in New York City, from his 1992 comedy special Mambo Mouth. 

This comedic genius takes us on an adventure into a taboo underworld (circa 1992).  Leguizamo speaks on many levels, using comedy to address real life issues still confronting this subculture, and to also address universal themes. Twenty-two years after this skit aired these challenges still prevail- the denial the inalienable rights afforded all for our citizens. Like most artist ahead of their time Leguizamo remains an underrated talent.
