The version on Netflix is even sharper and more incisive than I remember, showcasing a type of harsh, honest humor that's distinctly Latinx.
Leguizamo's history class is not an end all, be all-it leaves out pieces of Central American history I would have liked to see-but rather serves as a starting point, and he's the perfect educator for the task.
However, where the show shines is in those Latin history segments and how they impact him. They are educational-and not just to the titular "morons"-and paint a depressing picture about the history of conquered civilizations.
Leguizamo is so at ease on the stage, you can't help but wonder why he doesn't do this every day. He jumps from joke to joke... recounting incredibly tender moments in Latinx history with a deftness that still feels entirely spontaneous.
It's certainly the least boring chalk talk in the history of U.S. history classes...
His previous one-man shows showcased Leguizamo's wide range of characters and caricatures. Here, he's on a search for anyone in the annals who might serve as a true Latino hero for his middle-school son to admire.
[Leguizamo] makes a valiant attempt to connect modern-day oppression with an excruciatingly violent past-and realizes they have the same root.
