HBO Latino® continues to bring the laughs with their latest English-language stand-up comedy special Entre Nos: Spot On, premiering Friday, April 26that 9:00pm ET/PT. Entre Nos: Spot On will air across all of the channel’s platforms including HBO NOW®, HBO GO®, HBO On Demand® and partners’ streaming platforms.
This exclusive, hour-long continuation of HBO Latino’s Entre Nos comedy specials features four of the most exciting, young Latino comedians working today. Join Crystian Ramirez, Vanessa Gonzalez, Rojo Perez, and Erik Rivera as they each take a turn at the mic to share their hilarious, universal stories of life, love and being Latino.
Recorded before a live audience at The Alex Theater in California, Entre Nos: Spot On is an evening of sure-fire entertainment, with comics sharing anecdotes both hilarious and deeply personal. Comedian Crystian Ramirez talks about growing up in Coney Island and how he is shamed by fellow Latino men for having only one girlfriend; Vanessa Gonzalez brings us from adult dirty talk to grade-school name-calling and back; Rojo Perez pokes fun at e-cigarettes, Florida, and himself when he visits family in Puerto Rico; and Erik Rivera discusses getting the seal of approval from his father on his now-wife…who is not Latina. With a uniquely Latinx perspective, Entre Nos: Spot On is much more than a night of antics from some of the funniest folks in comedy: it spotlights people who get the Latino experience… spot on.

He was a semifinalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and also appeared on Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party.
