Latin American Digital Satire

Latin American Digital Satire

Critical Humor as Glocal Entertainment in Times of the Internet

(p.122) Chapter 6 Latin American Digital Satire
Satiric TV in the Americas

Paul Alonso

Oxford University Press

Chapter 6 focuses on Latin American digital satire, analyzing the cases of: 1) Enchufe.tv, an online comedy series that satirizes Ecuadorian idiosyncrasies and local urban culture; 2) El Pulso de la República, an independent Mexican online satiric news show created in 2012 by comedian Chumel Torres; and 3) Cualca, an Argentinean satiric sketch show focused on gender issues, created by feminist YouTube star Malena Pichot. Critically dialoguing with their respective national contexts and sociopolitical tensions, these cases not only reveal successful models for the development of Latin American independent digital media but also exemplify how cultural globalization and hybridity operate in today’s transnational entertainment and commercial critical humor.

Keywords:   Enchufe.tv, Cualca, digital satire, global media, hybridity, transnational entertainment, Malena Pichot, Chumel Torres
