One of Mexico’s most iconic comedians, Luis de Alba, will perform for the first time tonight at 8 p.m. the Lancaster Performing Arts Center. This show will be presented in Spanish.

During the time when comedy was king in Mexican cinema, Luis de Alba took audiences by storm and became a household name. He has portrayed a number of characters from a presumptuous son of a millionaire “El Pirrurris,” to clumsy clergyman “Hermano Sol,” and even a comedic interpretation of a Mexican indigenous man — “El Indio Maclovio.”

In addition to having one of the longest-running careers in entertainment, spanning more than 60 years, Luis de Alba is also an accomplished writer, singer, and radio personality. De Alba’s legacy continues with his most recent work, El Show de Luis de Alba, which has captivated audiences everywhere with stand-up comedy, theatrics, music, poetry, parodies, and crowd interaction.

Tickets are $49 and $44 and may be purchased online at www.LPAC.org, by phone at (661) 723-5950, or at the LPAC box office, 750 W. Lancaster Blvd., from noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
