Spanish-speaking comedian Sofia Niño de Rivera is a trailblazer in Latin American comedy. As one of Mexico City’s top stand-up performers and the first woman to be given a Spanish-language Netflix comedy special, De Rivera is a force to be reckoned with onstage. Now, De Rivera brings her special blend of self-deprecating humor to San Antonio’s Majestic Theatre on Friday, August 17th.
A former publicist, Sofia Niño de Rivera has found her place within Mexican and Latin American pop culture. The Mexico City native is a cast member on Club de Cuervos, a Spanish-language comedy-drama series on Netflix. She also starred in a comedy special on the same platform titled Sofía Niño de Rivera: Expuesta ("Exposed"), released in 2016. In March 2017, De Rivera appeared on a special episode of the United States talk show Conan titled “Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico.”
De Rivera is highly regarded throughout her community, and has been called “a leading exponent of stand-up comedy in Mexico and Latin America.” She was named Mexico City’s Woman of the Year by Chilango in 2016.
Fans of Latin American comedy will not want to miss De Rivera live at the Majestic Theatre! Tickets are available online. No cameras, recorders, phones or pagers are allowed at the show.
