LOS CABALLEROS LAS PREFIEREN BRUTAS (Gentlemen prefer dummies)
Currently on tour in Latin America and the United States
In the wake of international acclaim for her book Los caballeros las prefieren brutas and the resounding success of the eponymous television show produced by Sony Channel, Isabella Santo Domingo has taken her talent and irreverent sarcasm to the stage with a very funny stand-up routine on the war of the sexes, the purpose of marriage, divorce, male chauvinism and even Barbie, as well as the life ideally sought by women at large.
Over the last 4 years, Isabella Santo Domingo has bowed to nearly 500 000 theatregoers in 500 performances staged in cities in Latin America and the United States, where her shows are consistently sold out.
For an hour and 30 minutes audiences roar with laughter as Isabella tells one hilarious story after another, gradually bringing into focus a comical, glamorous and thought-provokingX-ray of the particulars of female seduction.
This stand-up comedy rests on the premise that ‘what they (men) don’t know is that no woman is dumb, which doesn’t mean we can’t act as if we were’, the artist herself asserts.
