NUVOtv Partnership Keeps the Laughs Coming Year After Year

For 13 years running and laughing, CHCI and NUVOtv (formerly SíTV) have partnered to produce Reyes of Comedy during CHCI's annual Hispanic Heritage Month events.  From Carlos Mencia and Cheech Marin, to Greg Giraldo and Paul Rodriguez, the top Latino comics in America have turned out to show support for CHCI's leadership development programs while providing comic relief for thousands of CHCI stakeholders over the years. 

"NUVOtv is one of CHCI's longest standing supporters of our mission and we rely on them to provide the comedy in a week filled with substantive and important policy discussions," said Esther Aguilera, CHCI President & CEO.  "Our Hispanic Heritage Month events highlight the best and brightest talents in the Latino community on so many different levels and NUVOtv helps us feature the best Latino comics and entertainers during this high-profile week of events."

Since its inception, CHCI and NUVOtv have worked together to elevate Reyes of Comedy by bringing high-level and nationally renowned talent while increasing the audience sizes at the historic Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C.  Nearly 1,900 people attended the show in 2007 when comedian Carlos Mencia (below) led an all-star lineup that was hosted by comedy legend Cheech Marin.  Today NUVOtv's support has transformed Reyes of Comedy into an exclusive event for CHCI's top supporters and stakeholders.

“NUVOtv is proud to be a continued supporter of CHCI and it's Annual Reyes of Comedy” said Michael Schwimmer, CEO of NUVOtv. "The show features some of today's top Latino comedians and celebrates our mission of producing compelling original programming that entertains, inspires and unites this powerful community."

The 13th Annual Reyes of Comedy show will be no different as it features top comedians Anjelah Johnson-ReyesCristela AlonzoShaun Latham and host Erik Rivera on Tuesday, October 1, at the Walter E. Convention Center.  Also joining them will be Rep. José Serrano and the brainchild and namesake of this comedic event, the Hon. Silvestre Reyes.

Our joint vision for Reyes of Comedy each year is to produce a light-hearted event that promotes the positive image of Latinos while raising critical funds for CHCI's programs that empower Latino youth through educational attainment and leadership development programs.

"We look forward to many more years of working with the decicated and talented team at NUVOtv to showcase our talented Latino entertainers while raising money for our nation's future leaders," said Aguilera.
