Spanish comedian Juan Joya Borja who is famous by his nickname El Risitas has died at age 65 on Wednesday in hospital; local media reports.
The meaning of the EI Risitas is Giggles and Juan Joyas infectious laughter brought him global fame and hes well known as the “Spanish laughing guy”
“The famous clip of him came from Spanish late-night show Ratones Coloraos, where he was interviewed by the host about his ill-fated experience working as a kitchen helper.
In the clip, uploaded on the show’s YouTube in 2007, Borja told Quintero how he once left 20 paella dishes in the sea overnight to clean them, only to return the next morning to find the tide had swept all but one away.
The story left him and the host slapping the desk in fits of uncontrollable laughter – with Borja’s signature wheezing and almost-toothless smile stealing the show.
Years later, from about 2014, internet users began re-posting the clip with unrelated subtitles”BBC
