Guatemalan-born Broad City and Narcos actor Arturo Castro is able to show his comedy range on his new Comedy Central sketch show that originated as a web series. "There’s something extremely cathartic about watching a Latinx comedian get his own platform to do as he pleases, ripping cliches in the entertainment industry and beyond with invigorating vehemence," says Caroline Framke. "With his new Comedy’s Central sketch show Alternatino, Arturo Castro has the rare opportunity to tell his own story and skewer the inevitably cringe-inducing perceptions of it, and he seizes it with palpable gusto." Yet Framke adds: "By all rights, Alternatino should not be TV’s only sketch comedy show fronted by a Latinx actor; it’s just too much pressure, and you can feel the show straining underneath it while also trying to make fun of it. Still, Castro and company are more than game to try, and the moments when they pull it off are worth the effort."
