La Casa Azul Bookstore and East Harlem Cafe present a night of comedy with Bill Santiago, author of "Pardon My Spanglish"
Stand-up comedian Bill Santiago will bring his humor to El Barrio on Thursday, March 12, starting at 7 p.m. The best part is that this night of comedy at the East Harlem Cafe, 1651 Lexington Ave. @ 104th St. is free and open to the public.
Santiago chronicles the quintessentially American alegrías of his mother tongue: the quirky, hilariously improvisational fusion of inglés and español spoken by millions (even if they don't know or admit que están doing it). With crash-course efficiency, cada página de este libro empowers your every step toward Spanglish mastery. How can you not love Spanglish? Twice the vocabulary, half the grammar!
And if you don't speak any Spanish, no problemo! Pardon My Spanglish is essential reading for Latinos-and the Latino-curious.
