What I liked

Actor/writer Gerald Ford is a force of nature, switching between English and Spanish throughout the show, he embodies each and every character in the show with such ease, the subtleties and nuances displayed by his performance on stage incredible.

Although set in the late 2000’s this show is timeless and feels just as relevant as ever.

As a first generation Mexican American, the themes of identify, and exploring what it means to ‘Latino Enough’ really resonated with me.

What I didn't like


My overall impression

Viva Gerald! This show is the summation of why I love the Hollywood Fringe Festival.
A masterclass in storytelling, EL ULTIMO COCONUT excels in its deliver propelled forward by sharp writing and tremendous heart.
This performance, had me tearing up one moment and gut busting laughing the next.

Please I implore you, don’t let this diamond in the rough pass you by.
