  • Two characters! To know who you are, you need good memory or seeing their performances on You Tube. Either way, will be an honor to share ARMCHAIR with these stars. Very good idea, but appeals to your fond memories of these two great comedians. Roams currents which will them find insurance near Callao.

  • The idea of putting these nearly life-size statues so that one can photograph is very good. The statues of realistic type are well made.

  • It is situated in the typical street of buenos aires, as currents, missed is Street the photo in it and the statue of course. It should be noted that there are other statues also interesting, that although the last time I saw them, they had been bandalizadas are nice to know. They should be recovered.

  • 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.
