Tila Maria Sesto brings Cultural Comedy to San Pedro


Comedy at its best was presented on Friday, May 1st at the Angel Nuñez Auditorium, during the first ever Tila Maria Sesto Show. Many island residents came out for the comedy show presented by Proud Mestizo Promotions. The main attraction of the night, Tila Maria Sesto, is an iconic comedian from Merida, Yucatan, Mexico that shows the struggles faced by Yucateca women in modern society. Paired with cold drinks and good food, the night was a huge success.Tila Maria Mestizo Culture Comedy-4

The show started a little after 9:30PM, but the crowd arrived early to get a good seat. VIP seating with table service was available for an increased price. Those in attendance laughed the night away at Tila Maria’s antics and jokes. It was an adult show with explicit language, mostly in Spanish. The aim of the show was to remind the community that Yucatec Maya is the mother culture of the Mestizo.Tila Maria Mestizo Culture Comedy-2 During intermission breaks, the audience enjoyed performances by the San Pedro Dance Academy and Natalie Arceo.
