‘Acuña Acuna’ is a one-person comedy show based on my real life as a Peruvian Latino living in America. The show is a series of true and hilarious monologues and sketches that follow my arrival in the US. After a sold-out run at Capital Fringe, it was voted as Best Solo Performance! This performance includes audience participation and a post-show artist talk-back.
