Known as the “Ace of Comedy” in Mexico, Saldaña was once part of Franco Escamilla’s Diablo Squad. We’re not sure how much he’s going to reference Donald Trump in his new show, but he’s probably well aware of the trove of material at his fingertips. During his Netflix special, Saldaña keeps things a lot lighter than politics. For example, he references his hometown of Monterrey and explains to the audience that they can order tacos covered in salsa made “Tlaquepaque style.” They’re the perfect taco, he said, if you get pulled over at a DUI checkpoint. “After you eat one of those, if a cop stops you and says ‘blow,’ his entire face will burn. Well, maybe that one’s funnier in Spanish.
