Diversity is hilarious! Hot Tamales Live hosted by Kiki Melendez, kicks off Showtime's LOL Comedy Festival Series on May 5th, 2009. Filmed at the El Rey Theater January 18 2009 in Los Angeles CA.

Starring the funniest most diverse female cast of comediennes ever seen on TV: Amy Anderson, Kira Soltanovich, Nikki Payne, Valentino, Jill-Michele Melean, Nadin Rajabi and Thea Vidale. Produced and directed by Scott Montoya, produced by Neal Marshall, with executive producers, David Albert Pierce, Peter Fruchtman, Kiki Melendez, Jerry Frichtman and Ian Fruchtman this show will make you "laugh til your sides hurt". The egotistical Valentino and beautiful Brazilian dancers round out the show.


Industry response has been outstanding:

"Where did Kiki find these naughty ladies? All I can think is that she's breeding them in a lab. Hot Tamales was hands-down the hardest laugh I've had in years. I can't remember laughing so hard at a comedy concert since the glory years of Eddie Murphy in the 80's."
Will Keck, Editor in Chief TV GUIDE


"From Kiki's opening shimmy to Nadine Rajabi's stories of being a first generation American with a unibrow to Thia's riotous take on raising children in the era of homosexuality, terrorism and copious amounts of weed, Hot Tamales rocks the house.
Ronnie Karam, Senior Editor at TVgasm.com.


"I haven't seen a comedy special this funny in a long time. just when you think it's one of the funniest stand up specials ever....its gets funnier!!"
Jenn Levy, Director of Development at Bravo Television


"OMG...last nite was AMAZING and you should be so proud of what you've accomplished!
Judy Apperson, MBST Entertainment


"The house was packed to the rafters. It was a wonderful blend of zesty comics for all comedy preferences. I was impressed how Kiki was able to showcase women of different ethnic backgrounds into one truly entertaining program.
Reeta Piazza, Director of Special Events Hollywood Improv

"I thought Hot Tamales was hysterical...!! I was nervous coming in, because I brought some top notch screen writers with me. After about 5 minutes though, they were literally crying with laughter. We found ourselves quoting the comics the next day."
Cindy Cowan, Producer


"Congratulations on Hot Tamales Live. It is a hit, we literally cried laughing. As a Boricua, I am very proud of you and Kiki for setting such a great example in the Hollywood community.
Jasmin Zimmatore


CONGRATULATIONS LADY!!!!! The Hot Tamales rocked the stage. What an incredible show and the crazy Canadian did us proud! We so enjoyed the entire evening."
Carla Collins Canadian Comic


"GIRL....Let this gay boy tell you I had so much fun last night at your world premiere event. It was truly spectacular!
Jamie, Club Papi Productions


An outrageously funny hour and a half of comedy that sets the bar for comedy specials to come. "This proves that shows with a multi-cultural cast work and are on track to be the future in Hollywood," said Kiki Melendez in response to the audience reaction. ...
