273 Rafinha Bastos

2 months ago

Rafinha Bastos is the Lenny Bruce of Brazil and he has the court orders to prove it.

He has been sued and had his life threatened over jokes he has made in Brazil.
His hard hitting, head cracking jokes earned him the titled of most influential person on twitter in 2011, Barrack Obama was number two.
He is a film and television star in Brazil but he loves stand up comedy above all else, which is why he now living in Los Angeles and bringing his comedy thunderbolts to American stages. I am happy to now call this man my friend even though he thinks all Americans have the same color lips as is the color of their skin.
This is a mystifying to me as is the fact that Americans spell Brazil with a z and Brasilians spell Brasil with an s.
Some things in life will remain a great mystery but great comedy rises to the top and that is why it is my pleasure to present to you now the one and only Rafinha Bastos!
