ED2011 Comedy Review: Wilfredo: Erecto! (Matt Roper)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

By turns disgusting and arousing, Wilfredo doesn’t cease his insatiable womanising throughout the night. The bucktoothed Spanish singer works the room marvellously. First he talks to the girls at the back of the room, then the girls at the sides of the room, and then the girls at the front of the room, each receiving their own individual song. As a character, he is an excellent creation; despite his hacking cough, his occasional phlegming, and his too-tight trousers, he is utterly charming and uplifting. I was rarely without a smile, and, leaving the show with a flower in hand, I couldn’t help but feel happier for it. Go see this show and take everyone you know with you.

Underbelly, 4 – 28 Aug (not 16), 11.30pm (12.30am), £8.00 – £10.50, fpp165.
