Wilfredo is the musical character comedy phenomenon who has charmed, hypnotised and terrified audiences all around the world.
Instantly recognizable by his trademark appearance – the high waisted trousers, tight shirt and the sound of voice to die for – he's an uplifting and unforgettable experience.
Whether he's performing in the plush surroundings of the Café de Paris, or to the muddy festival-goers of the Glastonbury Festival, or playing to the discerning masses at New York's Lincoln Center, Wilfredo captures the imagination of all sorts of audiences.
A feelgood contemporary variety act, Wilfredo first caused a sensation on the British festival scene, becoming the breakout hit of the annual Port Eliot Festival where he shared the stage with Jarvis Cocker. This was followed by a series of appearances at the Edinburgh Festival, where he performed three feature-length sell-out shows.
Wilfredo played to over 20,000 theatre-goers at the month-long Cape Town Funny Festival in South Africa and received the honour to perform for Desmond Tutu in a gala performance for the Nobel Prize winner's Legacy Foundation. This preceded a summer-long tour of Central Europe, where he entertained the peoples of Berlin, Leipzig, Budapest, Bratislava and Prague.
In the United States, Wilfredo has toured to Atlanta, Washington D.C, Philadelphia, Denver, Dallas, New Orleans, San Francisco and beyond, while in NYC his late-night appearances at the legendary Slipper Room have fast become the stuff of downtown legend.
Performing original song and twisted cover versions, Wilfredo is an experience unlike no other. And wherever and whenever he appears, love is always in the air.
