Sancocho is an hour long special starring comedians Dee Nasty and Sasha Merci. The show will open with a candid, yet hilarious conversation ranging everywhere from identity politics, sex, latin moms, hair and the jarring differences between NY and LA. Followed by a 15 minute bit by one of their favorite comedians and closing out with Dee and Sasha performing their own stand up bits. The show has it all from an introspective view on the Latina experience mixed with a lot of blunt humor.  
 
About Sasha Merci & Dee Nasty
Dee Nasty and Sasha Merci are the new Latinx voices from Uptown New York. Two Dominican-American Latina comedians, that speak on social settings as well as politics, dating and whatever else pops into their heads. In a heavily photo-shopped world, Dee Nasty and Sasha Merci have no filter-on or off the gram- and are on their way to break social norms on how women should ‘behave’. Growing up in The Bronx gave them the edge that only growing up in the BX can bring. They’re blunt like Cardi, got jokes like Desus and Mero and charm like JLo. Sasha and Dee are not afraid to get their hands dirty or laugh at their many struggles. No topic is off limits.

Sasha Merci Medina was born in the Bronx, NY to immigrant parents from the Dominican Republic. Moving from home to home, Sasha found stability through creativity and used her imagination as an outlet to escape the hard times. She enjoyed binge-watching and drew inspiration from Comedy Central’s Stand up specials, sitcoms like The Fresh Prince, Novelas like Marimar, and classic cartoons like Tom and Jerry. Always the creative, Sasha would participate in school plays until she attended the Amas Musical Theater and landed her first a role on an off-off-broadway venue, The Players Theater titled Sprang Thang.  Here she was able to discover her love for combining  singing, acting and comedy. She took her talents to Instagram where she used the platform to express herself comedically.  Her raw, unfiltered material helped her to build a massive following organically and she went on to collaborate with other comedians including, Dee Nasty, Ken Starrz, and Khadi Don.  Her growth online inspired her to co-create her web series,  Dating Has No Merci, which earned the #1 spot in the “Top Five Web Series to Watch in 2017” on Latina.com DHNM motivated her move to Los Angeles and since then has hosted several franchises on digital platforms including Complex, Mitu, and MTV. Sasha starred as Rita in the indie film De Lo Mio, which  has been viewed in several major film festivals across the country, including HBO Latino’s Film Fest, BAM, and the New Orleans Film Fest.
