Maritess vs The Superfriends

This is a comedy routine done by Rex Navarrete, a Pinoy stand up comic based in the US. Maritess is a Filipina overseas worker who is employed keeping house for the Superfriends at the Hall of Justice. It is a satire, poking fun at American cartoon culture, but it has irritated rather than tickled the funny bones of some Filipinos who complain that it ridicules the plight of Filipinos working abroad. Navarrete defends his script. “Our struggles become our comedy,” he says.
