The missionaries of mayhem are back with their unique, badass brand of Chicano satire! Born here in the Bay and Los Angeles-based, Culture Clash first brought their dangerous and subversive version of documentary theatre to Berkeley audiences with Culture Clash in AmeriCCa, gleefully skewering American culture through the lens of the Latino experience.
In this powerful, pointed, and downright hilarious update they turn their razor-sharp wit to everything from pussy hats to MAGA caps, laying down outrageous, biting, and thought-provoking monologues and sketch comedy about the immigrant experience in America right now.

A comedy master class…fun and festive…Seeing their work is always restorative…but with Culture Clash (Still) in America, their latest collection of monologues, sketches and shorts, the trio’s comic chops seem to reach still loftier heights.”
San Francisco Chronicle
Exceptionally funny…[A] laugh-fest…Culture Clash (Still) in America is the type of lighthearted, yet intelligent evening of theater we crave.”
The characters offer a riveting mix of touching portraits and piercing satire, and the performances are superb. Culture Clash demonstrates once again that its keen satirical eye and voice is not just as relevant and attuned to the present moment as ever, but critically needed right now.”
