Jorge Porcel 1936 - 2006

Jorge Porcel, the portly Argentine comedian and TV host who leered with gusto at the scantily clad women who surrounded him in his show, died Tuesday night at Mercy Hospital from complications from gall-bladder surgery. He was 69.

For years, Porcel's baby face and trademark leer were a staple of Spanish-language television comedy throughout the world in To Bed With Porcel, a variety show that mixed raunchy humor, music, double-entendres and buxom young women. In the United States, he was seen on the Telemundo network.

Until Telemundo sold out they have some good stuff on. Glad I got to catch his stuff.
