Who was Gino Bramieri?
Gino Bramieri was an Italian comedian and actor. He was especially known as a television comedian, but also performed in theatres, on radio, and in about thirty movies. He was nicknamed "Il Re della barzelletta" for his burlesque comic style, which was largely based on his skill at telling funny stories. His jokes were sometimes as quick as a cut and thrust, and bordering on surrealism. They have been collected in a series of books, such as 50 chili fa.
Bramieri was born in Milan, Italy, into a humble family. He made his stage debut in 1943, with the prose company in prose of Egisto Olivieri. He later graduated in accountancy at night school. In 1948 he got married and had a son. Bramieri's career was launched by Erminio Macario, who entered him in his revue company in 1949. In his career, he has performed together with many prominent Italian comedians and actors, including Franco Franchi and Ciccio Ingrassia, Peppino De Filippo, Aldo Fabrizi, Ave Ninchi, Nino Taranto, Raimondo Vianello, Renato Rascel, and Totò.
