Tributo a uno de mis sketch favoritos de la televisión peruana. 'La Banda del Choclito'
Published:
LA BANDA DEL CHOCLITO::::
Sketch peruano, del legendario programa cómico 'Risas y Salsas'. Narraba la vida de una banda de asaltantes, liderados por Choclito, un mafioso pequeño en tamaño pero grande en crueldad interpretado por el actor cómico Justo Espinoza “Petipan”.
El resto de la banda era personificado por José Centurión como Mapache, Pedro Yuffra como Ojitos Lindos y Álvaro González como Guayabera Sucia. Este grupo de desadaptados lindaban entre la ridiculez y la ineptitud. A pesar de esto, todos los miembros permanecían inseparables. En cada episodio, los planes de la banda por poner sus manos en un buen botín terminaban, como era de esperarse, con los malhechores en la estación de policía dando explicaciones absurdas.

CHOCLITO´S GANG::::
Peruvian sketch from legendary comedy TV show “Risas y Salsa” (“Laughters and Salsa”). It was about a group of raiders, led by “Choclito”1, a mafioso small in size but big in cruelty portrayed by actor Justo Espinoza “Petipán”2.
The rest of the gang were portrayed by José Centurión as ”Raccoon”, Pedro Yuffra as “Pretty Eyes” and Álvaro González as “Dirty Guayabera”3. This gang of maladjusted robbers bordered stupidity and incompetence. In spite of this, all of them used to stay together. In each episode, the gang’s plans to get their hands on some good booty always ended up, as expected by all TV audience, with the delinquents in a police station giving absurd explanations of their behavior.
