Steve Trevino

This Latin comic didn’t just jump on the Mencia bandwagon

Stand-up comedian Steve Trevino claims his nickname is “Sexy Mexy” (sure it is, Steve). He’s a frequent cohort of Carlos Mencia, but don’t let that discourage you from seeing him at the Improv today. Yes, the “I’m-Latino-and-want-to-yell-about-it” shtick became risqué, cool and then boring really quickly, but the Portland, Texas-born Trevino has been riffing on the differences between whites and Hispanics for more than a decade, long before it was a trend. “You fight a redneck, he has to have a catchy phrase before he fights, [like] ‘You feel froggy, jump!’” he’s said in his act. “What scares me is now Mexicans and rednecks are starting to get together. That’s scary because they’re going to have kids; they’re going to have little red--nexicans running around. They’re going to grow up and live in a trailer with 20-inch rims. ‘Is that the Virgin Mary on the back of your house?’” Hey, sure beats repeated shouts of “beaner.” New Mad TV cast member Anjelah Johnson opens.
