  • The statue of the duo Olmedo and Portales to us, at first glance, don't mean much, because they are comedians Argentines who don't have much visibility in Brazil. Is there at the junction of the Uruguay and Corrientes avenues. But yields good pictures and Valley as more experience an activity typically city.

  • Borges and Alvarez were the characters of comedians Alberto Olmedo and Javier Portales, famous in the 80 on Argentine television. The statue of the two comedians is located on the corner of Avenida Corrientes Uruguay Street, downtown in the capital Buenos Aires. Anyone can sit between the two figures and do selfies or take a picture.

  • Although it is understood the why it been located there, in the street flows, with the daily movement, there is little and is annoying if meets people around. Joined the wastebaskets, but they have collected, it does not make any Scenic photo. But, delve into the history of these Argentine comedians to find out the why live there like statues.
