With the look of a tramp, the libido of a goat and the voice of a wrong angel, Wilfredo is one of the most irresistibly funny musical-comedy characters on the scene today. Possessed of a bulletproof ego, rancid personal hygiene and a grotesque collection of facial and verbal tics, there’s still something charming about this Spanish balladeer and his rich, expressive repertoire of songs, mostly about his effect on the fairer sex. Matt Roper inhabits his creation deeply, undercutting his hauteur and self-delusion with beams of charm and dollops of soul. Tonight he presents a full set and Mat Snead's lovely short documentary about the character, 'Wilfredo Comes to Town'. As the man himself might say, you can’t help yourself.
