LOS ANGELES , Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- mitú, the leader in creating mainstream entertainment through a Latino lens, today announced its partnership with social media juggernaut, Chingo Bling for a stand-up and sketch comedy special entitled, "They Can't Deport Us All."
With more than 40 million content views and millions of fans across his social channels, Chingo Bling, a Mexican-American comedian, rapper and producer, has earned millions of fans in the U.S. with his unique Tex-Mex brand of entertainment.
"I'm thrilled to bring my core fans a bigger and better snapshot of my world, while also introducing what we do to a larger audience," said Chingo Bling. "I'm proud to be a voice for underserved audiences and grateful for mitú's partnership in bringing our content to a large scale platform that will reach cross-cultural audiences," added Chingo Bling.
From culturally relevant musical parodies and comedic sketches like his "Hotline Bling Remix" that garnered more than three million YouTube views, to more serious content focused on topics from immigration to racism, Chingo Bling brings a unique voice to entertainment.
"At mitú, we believe authenticity earns us a unique, deep relationship with our audience, and that's what sets us apart. Chingo is the 'real deal' -- a multi-hyphenate, break-out talent and savvy businessman who has cultivated a passionate and loyal fan base. We're incredibly excited to partner with him to bring his talent to new audiences," said Executive Producer and co-founder of mitú, Doug Greiff.
"In 36 months, multicultural youth will become the majority in America. There's a critical need for today's entertainment to accurately reflect the cultural makeup of our country, and youth are hungry for entertainment they can relate to. They want to see entertainers who have similar cultural experiences to them," Greiff added.
The official premiere of "They Can't Deport Us All" will air in Summer 2017, with the stand-up comedy show set to be taped live to a sold out crowd in Chingo's hometown of Houston. He'll be joined by comedians Jesus Sepulveda, Jerry Garcia and Jon Stringer.
The name of the special and tour, "They Can't Deport Us All" comes from Chingo Bling's 2007 album that launched him into the national spotlight.
