The Comedian: LeJuan James

I am not really sure what I can say about half-Dominican/half-Puerto Rican LeJuan James. He is wickedly funny. He became famous through his YouTube Channel where he makes light of our culture’s quirks and imitates our mothers when they would lecture us. What Hispanic person hasn’t sent one of these videos to a friend or even their own family? He has this incredible ability to bring back nostalgia and all the right intonations that remind us of our childhood.

Despite the fun he pokes at our family/culture dynamics that are less than perfect, he is all about family. In his wigs, he always brings joy to a dark day– LeJuan James is an #orgullohispano.
