The Culture Clash TV show (30 episodes that aired on Fox), led by the namesake Chicano comedy troupe of Richard Montoya, Herbert Siguenza and Ric Salinas, was a hit-and-miss affair. But when they hit, they were right on the money. “They were talking about immigration, police brutality, all the issues that are relevant now,” said festival curator Jim Mendiola. “I think that show was ahead of its time and wasn’t really appreciated [then]. What we’re doing is going back to the archives and putting together a 90-minute show with the best of Culture Clash. It’ll be stuff that hasn’t been seen in decades.” Here’s hoping the Chicano Surfers, White People’s Court and Chicano Jeopardy made the cut.
