For people who grew up in Latin America since the 1970s, an actor unlike any other brought comedy to the masses. In recent years, a video game in multiple consoles was made based on the cartoon version of the TV live-show, but for any one who has seen Roberto Gómez Bolaños throughout the years, the misadventures of Chespirito, el Chavo del 8, el Chapulín Colorado and other characters brought to life made famous by himself and many other comedians who worked alongside him in 1,278 TV episodes, the comedian has become a legend. The actor nicknamed Chespirito (as in Little Shakespeare) brought comedy that kids and adults can watch together and appreciate.
The iconic comedian Roberto Gómez Bolaños has died today of heart failure at the age of 85. Gracias por todo, Chespirito.
GRACIAS POR HABER HECHO FELIZ A TANTA GENTE Y POR LOS MARAVILLOSOS MOMENTOS QUE COMPARTIMOS EN EL GRUPO. DESCANSA EN PAZ ROBERTO
