Comedy

Born Jonathan French in Beverly Hills and orphaned at three months, this young boy was adopted by his Mexican nanny, Nena and step-father, E.J. and raised to be a good, God-fearing Mexican with a love for ranchero music. At age 33 and blessed with the talent to sing like the angels. He takes his ranchero act from the small, half-empty soccer bars in East L.A., to a larger music festival audience where he is discovered and quickly swept into Mexican pop stardom. Juan's everyman appearance and musical style undergo a celebrity make-over. He changes his name to "El Guero" and his songs for the working-class are transformed into heartless Reggaeton.
