We are a bilingual comedy collective that loves celebrating our Latino lifestyle.

Started by two Chingonas locas in San Antonio, Texas in 2017, the show has evolved into an entertaining variety of live comedy acts, sketch comedy, and some good ole chisme! Through real life convos and creative skits, our goal is to empower our gente by telling entertaining stories we can all relate to. Whether you need a good belly laugh or a trip down memory lane, this next generation of comics are sure to make you spill your Michelada!

Bean & Chisme

It was an honor and privilege to perform as a group yesterday at the Icon Awards Brunch for the The Center - Pride Center San Antonio at the Westin Riverwalk. We had a blast and it was inspiring to see so many people standing in solidarity and fighting for our LGBTQ+ community. Thank you for having us 🙏 🏳️‍🌈🏳️&Aj RivasAjSamantha Najeraa Nina DurannaChona E - Joanna Estrada Estrada ... See MoreSee Less
