4 phrases that Olmedo couldn’t say today
With the feminist revolution at the highest peak in its history, today women and men are questioning attitudes and behaviors that, until not long ago, were a matter of every day. What used to go unnoticed, today makes the alarms go off. Alberto Olmedo was a comedian of his time. He made a laugh for decades from the TV screen, from the cinema and in the theater. He made a laugh in a way that today would not be viable.
The role of the woman in her sketchs was, at least, insulting. It was another time, yes, but it helps us to see how much (or how much little) we have evolved since then. In his career, Alberto Olmedo immortalized several phrases, some of which today would be unacceptable.
Do you want to prove how much our way of understanding humour has changed? We leave you four phrases that Olmedo couldn’t say today.
