Biography Timeline


Although he was an international favorite for decades, his main career was made in the United States, where he arrived in 1934 or 1935. In addition to live performances at nightclubs, he appeared regularly on TV variety shows, including frequent appearances on CBS's The Ed Sullivan Show, where he was a guest 48 times, on Broadway, in Las Vegas casino theaters and in feature films. Much later in his career he was introduced to a new generation of fans on The Muppet Show. His last TV appearance was on The Very Best of the Ed Sullivan Show #2, a retrospective in which the nonagenarian talked about "Suliban" and performed a brief spot of ventriloquism.


These catchphrases were incorporated into a record Wences released in 1959 by Joy Records (New York), featuring the songs "S-All Right? S-All Right" and "Deefeecult For You – Easy For Me".


In the early 1980s, a Tri-State Honda dealer's commercial featured Señor Wences with Johnny. Pedro's "s'awright" was a voice from the elaborate glovebox. Señor Wences would point out all of the car's features to which Johnny would reply, "Ees Standard", "Stan-dard!", and "Nice!" This may have been Wences final commercial appearance. It was shot in Puerto Rico because its star declined to travel to New York. Tony Belmont, at the time the President of Alan Freed Productions, was his agent and manager throughout the 1980's, and he secured Wences a spot performing at Ruth Eckerd Hall, among many others. In 1986, he made a guest appearance on The Garry Shandling Show.


Wences received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the US National Comedy Hall of Fame in 1996, and the ceremony was immortalized via video through the National Comedy Hall of Fame.


In 2009 Señor Wences was featured in the ventriloquist comedy documentary I'm No Dummy, directed by Bryan W. Simon.
