Luis Caballero is a comedian and writer of Puerto Rican descent, who lived in New York City for most of his life. After performing stand-up in comedy clubs for several years, he teamed up with filmmaker Ben Model to adapt his comedy material into a film. That film, which Model produced and directed, became The Puerto Rican Mambo (Not a Musical), a 74-minute feature which was released theatrically in 1992 and on home video in 1996. Caballero's sardonic humor sought to shed light on the Puerto Rican experience.
Famous quotes containing the word luis:
“Literature is not exhaustible, for the sufficient and simple reason that a single book is not. A book is not an isolated entity: it is a narration, an axis of innumerable narrations. One literature differs from another, either before or after it, not so much because of the text as for the manner in which it is read.”
—Jorge Luis Borges (18991986)
