Cantinflas, el Charlie Chaplin de Mexico


The one and only: Mario Moreno Cantinflas. A man so popular that Charlie Chaplin even was quoted to have said he was “the greatest comedian alive.”

Known for his razor sharp quips, Cantinflas played his most iconic role as that of a social satirist vagabond. He openly ridiculed the Mexican bourgeoisie to their face in such a way, known as “cantinflear”, that the characters on the receiving end would initially think his remarks a compliment, until much later when the weight of his stinging bite were processed, but by then he had already moved to another conversation.
