Do these faces look familiar to you? Maybe…. maybe not… not sure?? A few years back there was this comedy troupe in Chicago known as Urban Indigenous. They were compiled of various ethnic backgrounds (yes, they even had a white, blond chick) and hit the comedy scene running! They had a good number of sold out audiences and even made an appearance during the Just for Laughs Festival in Chicago.
Then there was a fizzle….
Another group that was out and about named Taco Flavored Eggrolls had already been on the scene for a bit. Some people from Urban Indigenous decided to play with them. They had a show and had a nice run. Ya never know…they may come back. Like most comedy troupes in Chicago – sometimes they just decide to show up again for a bit. Ya never know…
But today, right now, at this very moment, the two groups decided to combine. The two decided to join forces (if you will). The two are now one and led by such positive notion. A MENTAL NOTION, if you will furthermore. And with such combination, a new name was borne. This name – …. THE CHICAGO TRANSIT MINORITIES ….
The group has evolved a bit, but led by Director Jonald Reyes, the flavor is still there. Comprised of such players & writers as Sanchez, Chan, Martinez, Chung, Lee, Osai, and yes BUDDHA, this group is gearing for a return. Rehearsals have begun and yes (all positives of YES) – there is already a run ready to be attended to.
