What is it?

YA TU SABES Monologue Slam presented by NBC

Ya Tu Sabesis an underground, pop-up monologue slam showcasing emerging diverse Latinx Writers and Actors. After a multi-round audition process, 12 Writers and 12 Actors will be selected by a panel of esteemed judges to perform original monologues at the Ricardo Montalbán Theatre in the heart of Hollywood in front of industry professionals, family, and friends.

Our Purpose

The Latinx voice is underwhelming and misplaced in the entertainment industry.

Recent studies conducted by local universities have demonstrated that the Latinx voice and representation is underwhelming and misplaced in the entertainment industry. Nosotros recognizes that there is a severe disconnect and a largely negative perception of Latinx in Hollywood. Thus, we have created this program to give up-and-coming and established Latinx writers and actors a platform to be recognized for their talents by networks and studios. Many of our Nosotros members and participants have been directly called in for network and studio table readings, guest star and series regular roles, and producer sessions from being seen in our programs.
