Stand-up comedian Steve Trevino claims his nickname is Sexy Mexy (sure it is, Steve). Hes a frequent cohort of Carlos Mencia, but dont let that discourage you from seeing him at the Improv today. Yes, the Im-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! hes said in his act. What scares me is now Mexicans and rednecks are starting to get together. Thats scary because theyre going to have kids; theyre going to have little red--nexicans running around. Theyre 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.
