“More than happy for this return to the stage, after a year and a half, what I am excited about. Although I am three decades old, I feel nervous and this reunion feels like something new. Seeing an audience live is totally different. Although it is the so-called new normal, I was already getting used to this virtual thing, which by the way, at the beginning was terrible. The fact of telling a joke and not listening to anything, a laugh, a look, was a crazy thing, although then you get used to it ”. With this phrase, the comic actor Carlos Álvarez describes the show that will allow him to be on stage again.
The appointment will be this July 16 and 17 at the Bolívar Convention Center (with a limited capacity of 120 people). “All the measures will be respected and complied with as they should be done. I take care of my audience because I love and respect them. Not like the candidates who, since the end of the campaign until today, continue to gather people without any measures, and about that the mayor of Lima says nothing, quite the opposite of what happens with traveling comedians when they want to entertain the public ”,
To this he mentions that although it sounds ironic “the bread that we saved for May is already over and two Mays have already passed. There is no more bread and you have to go to work. The situation for many is unfortunate and tremendous, not everyone has done business, there are artists and citizens who live from day to day, just let them work. While traveling comedians are beaten when they go to the squares, politicians are escorted, “he complains about his colleagues and adds” it is easy to say ‘reinvent yourself’, but not everyone can do it. The comedians on the street sell masks, but their thing is humor and also people want to laugh, throw off stress and comedians do an excellent job ”.
Álvarez, at this time, in addition to joining the new virtual modality to make presentations, continued with his social work, of which he feels satisfaction, especially because it reaches many children. “We started helping hospitals, bringing mattresses, gel, alcohol, a mask. We did a nice job. We have implemented 60 medical posts, which is where the humble citizen first arrives. We saw that there was not even a wheelchair. That can not be. At the same time, I started a campaign for the free elimination of childhood anemia in cities like Trujillo and Puerto Eten. He went on a personal basis and the Army, EsSalud and a laboratory joined. That information goes to the Ministry of Health so that they have a statistic and follow-up. Each child left with their cookies with iron, fruits, vitamin C. You have to understand that the child who has anemia does not learn, does not grow. It is about helping the children of Peru. They will be our authorities, musicians, teachers, doctors, artists and politicians of tomorrow ”.
