Join me as I chat with one of the happiest men in Show Business, Chuy Bravo from Chelsea Lately.
Luke: Chuy, let me just start off by telling you that my dad is your biggest fan.
Chuy: [Laughs heartily] Thank you!
Luke: So, tell me about some of your charity work.
Chuy: I’m starting a clinic for drug and alcohol problems in my home town in Mexico. I’m 13 years sober myself.
Luke: So you still have pretty strong roots in your hometown?
Chuy: Yeah, people love me there. They’ve donated a little piece of land, about three acres for the rehab center. And hopefully it will open next year.
Luke: Of all of the comedians you’ve had on Chelsea Lately, who is your favorite.
Chuy: They’re all my favorite. I just finished a national tour with all of them called The Comedians of Chelsea Handler. All of us are really close; like brothers and sisters. They’re great.
Luke: Is comedy something you’ve always wanted to do?
Chuy thinks for a moment. A big grin appears on his face.
Chuy: Yes! I’m a very happy person. I like to see people happy and laughing.
Luke: Thanks for speaking with me, Chuy. It’s been a delight.
Check back soon for more updates from The DCP Beat, with Luke!
