In the same vein as culture-based comedy tours like The Original Kings of Comedy and the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, Bad Boyz of the Barrio gathers together four comics - Pablo Francisco, Rudy Moreno, Willie Barcena, and Gilbert Esquivel - to riff on their shared heritage; in this case, Latino identity. The comedians here also take aim at other concepts like the clichés of movie trailers, matriarchy, and, of course, white people. Despite the seeming gimmickry of omnibus comedy tours, those like Bad Boyz of the Barrio give needed exposure to new, appealing, and underrepresented comic voices.
