“Latin King Of Comedy” Johnny Sanchez Was On MadTV In The 2000s
Coming to the Plaza Theatre this Saturday, it’s the Latin Kings of Comedy with Paul Rodriguez, Joey Medina, Gilbert Esquivel, and Johnny Sanchez. We’ve got tickets to give away all week long on the BAMS so just listen to win.
We got a call on the KLAQ "Neck-Line" (844-805-6325) reminding us that Johnny Sanchez was part of the MadTV cast for a couple of years and he had one very memorable character:
“That dude had a character on Mad TV called Baby Joker. That was funny, man. That was funny. And every time I have YouTube on my grandma's always saying, hey, put on baby Joker, put on baby Joker, if y'all have a chance. Check out, BABY joker!”
The only thing the caller got wrong was the character’s name. It’s actually “‘Lil’ Joker” but it wasn’t hard to find on YouTube.
Here’s another sketch with Johnny’s Lil’ Joker. See if you don’t recognize another face in this one.
Yup, that’s Keegan Michael Key who would go on to do “Key & Peele” on Comedy Central. His partner Jordan Peele, also a MadTV alum, would go on to direct some of the most acclaimed horror films of the last 10 years…
While Jordan Peele went on to win an Academy Award, Keegan Michael Key got to beat up the two old balcony hecklers from The Muppet Show on Saturday Night Live…
And THAT, my friends, is how you go down a YouTube rabbit hole.
There are still a few tickets left for The Latin Kings of Comedy so, if you don’t win them from us, you can still purchase them, here.
