Arturo Castro chats about the new Comedy Central series ALTERNATINO WITH ARTURO CASTRO

Comedy Central’s new sketch series, ALTERNATINO with Arturo Castro, is premiering tonight, June 18 at 10:30pm ET/PT. Creator, writer and star Arturo Castro tackles more than 45 characters in sketches over ten episodes that showcase his perspective on relationships, everyday awkward moments and much more.  Each episode in addition to the sketches has a scripted narrative thread that features a heightened version of Arturo as he goes about daily life as a Latin millennial.

In Miami, our correspondent Mariana Medina had the opportunity to sit down with the Guatemalan comedian Arturo Castro to chat abut this new series, the Latinos in general, the importance of Latinos in this industry, and more.

ALTERNATINO with Arturo Castro continues Comedy Central’s unparalleled legacy of developing the biggest and most culturally relevant sketch comedy – launching the careers of stars like Dave Chappelle, Amy Schumer, Nick Kroll, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele – using modern Latino identity (misconceptions and all) as a fresh filter for cultural commentary about our daily lives and the zeitgeist…all rooted in his personal experience.
