Festival Reviews

Born: September 6, 1964 in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA

Most of the criticism I got early in my career was from the Latin community. They used to take me out to lunch and tell me, “Can you go and take lessons to lessen your accent?”. Or, “When you’re on a talk show, can you not be so funny and loud?”. People gave me so much crap about my voice, and I tried. I really did try to change, but it was the way I spoke. As I got older, the octaves dropped, thank God. Now I find it flattering if a sixteen-year-old comes up and starts imitating me.
