''Oh, he couldn't wait for me to say that joke. He loves that joke. Another thing, too. No one has ever talked about it on national television, especially Latinos, to have a brother come out of the closet, to really talk about that on television. He was a pink light. He said, 'Run with it!'.... This movie is called 'I am not like that no more.' It's based on my stand-up comedy. My brother comes out of the closet on the movie, just like he did on my jokes.''
Felipe Esparza, the winner of the 2010 season of the TV show ''Last Comic Standing.'' He says he doesn't particularly like being labeled as "the Latino comedian," and he's learned to broaden his humor so that others can be in on the jokes. (NonprofitNews)
''I'm having lunch with my brother, and his boyfriend shows up. I don't know how I know this, but my brother could do a lot better! ... They start kissing in front of me. The more they kiss, the gayer I look. Oh, hello! People were feeling sorry for me. Look at that fat, gay third wheel!''
