  • Alberto Olmedo and Javier Portales were comedians porteños and statues that the honors is located on the corner of Corrientes with Uruguay. Both statues are seated in an armchair and attracts the attention and looks of who passes through there.

  • If we know who were Olmedo and portals. If we know the characters that made and spent, and see them sitting there in this jocular attitude we can feel some nostalgia and we think that that horrible statue has some sense. For tourists there are thousand best options. That Yes, this is free.

  • Iconic characters if any, honored for posterity at the epicenter of the entire area of the theatres that knew how to cherish her talent among so many applause. Travel bound by more theatres of Corrientes of hit area you find this in the middle of the street... and a little tumult of people waiting their turn for the obligatory photo with these two endearing bosses of Buenos Aires humor. Perhaps for some seems something a little silly, but it's a photo that can not miss you. Funny, anecdotal and classic city. I love it!!!

  • A well deserved tribute to two great capocomicos of the Argentina. They have done several generations laugh. Pity that there is no respect for sculptures and tributes, and in many cases they end up damaged or destroyed.
