Men in Black Humor

Laughing out LoudTwo of Puerto Rico's comedy giants are joining together to offer a new spectacle entitled "El bello y la bestia". Luis Raúl and Raymond Arrieta aim to make comedy history in their new offering.

Borrowing from the successful "Men in Black" movies, during their press conference they wore the "last suit that they'll ever wear" and carried metallic briefcases. As they approached reporters and photographers, they revealed their concealed water cannons and commenced to fire upon the press (Got to love that!)

On the 16th and 17th of March in the Centro de Bellas Artes in Caguas , the duo will offer up their best parodies, jokes, imitations, music, and characterizations in one mega-production. As they have put it " like nothing before ever seen in Puerto Rico". According to Raúl "Hace más de un año que teníamos la idea y el deso de trabajar juntos, pero las agenda de ambos no nos los permitían. Al fin llegó la oportunidad y creo que no pudo haber sido en mejor momento, porque ahora más que nunca el pueblo necesita 'gufearse' todo lo que está pasando en el País. Translation: "The goofing around in our country no more than ever is the cause of what we are going through. It just makes you want to laugh". At least that's what I think it says, although I could be wrong.

The duo have very high expectations for this production, including presenting the show in various sites in the United States, recording a DVD and/or presenting the show as a "pay-per-view" channel. Further, the producer Rafo Muñiz, indicates that the pair have plans to make a movie together with a script already written by Arrieta.

Tickets for the event, which is only for adults, are on sale in TicketCenter and at the CBA in Caguas.
