The new stand-up comedy special MARCELLA ARGUELLO: BITCH GROW UP! debuts on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10 on HBO Latino and will be available to stream on HBO Max. This Galentine’s Day, tune in to watch Marcella Arguello, one of Los Angeles’ most exciting Latinx comedians, deliver a night of unadulterated laughter.
In BITCH, GROW UP!, Arguello couples her larger-than-life stage presence with her brutally honest take on post-pandemic hook ups and why broke men are better in bed, an exploration of how “Beauty and the Beast” triggered an epiphany, and a self-reflection on her middle school D.A.R.E. essay. Marcella Arguello makes her standalone debut with this hilariously relatable stand-up comedy special taped at the Roulette Intermedium in Brooklyn, New York.
