We remember Guillermo Álvarez Guedes who was born in Cuba on this day in 1927. He died in 2013.
How do you measure Alvarez-Guedes’s impact?
He was not a politician or academic. He was not a singer like Celia Cruz or TV executive like Desi Arnaz. He did not run Coca Cola or create a business empire.
He made us laugh. He entertained us with a very unique sense of humor. He made Cubans laugh about Cubans. And most Cubans needed to laugh in those early days in the US.
Alvarez-Guedes put Cuban “expletives” all over the world! It did not sound like an “expletive” when it came out of his mouth!
