The return of traveling comedians to Peruvian television has generated divided opinions among the viewing public. The first to turn around were those hired by Panamericana, who had Kike Suero among their ranks, Edwin Aurora, Mondonguito, Cholo Peter and Pompinchú. But the latter caused a great controversy by giving up said space just two days after its premiere.
Said comedian said that the reasons for his departure were due to the fact that he disagreed with the payment that they were going to give him, which he described as a tip and that, in addition, he did not like the idea of not having his own program, since they only went to be a sequence of “Saturdays with Andrés”. After his words, the Panamericana board of directors decided that this space would no longer go on the air.
