The humorist Carlos Sánchez died this morning at the age of 68, after being hospitalized two days ago in a Buenos Aires sanatorium to be treated with palliative care for a cancer that he had suffered for years.
In the last hours, the comedian’s treatment had required the use of morphine due to the advance of the disease, according to the medical authorities of the Otamendi Sanatorium, located in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Recoleta.
His daughter Jorgelina had reported that Sánchez had advanced kidney cancer and that for that reason they treated him with palliative care. He was not in intensive care and remained lucid when he was coming off the morphine.
Sánchez was born on July 19, 1952 in the Buenos Aires city of Bahía Blanca. He was not only a comedian but also worked as an actor and singer, an activity in which he began as a child.
He worked in programs of personalities such as Juan Alberto Badía, Juan Carlos Calabró, Moria Casán and María Marta Serra Lima, and was successful on TV in Chile, a country where he was highly recognized.
We also worked on television programs in Colombia and Miami, particularly with the program Firecrackers. His most memorable role is perhaps his lead comedian role in Café Fashion, with Beatriz Salomón.
