Stand-up is a style of comedy that originated at the end of the Second World War in the nightlife in the United States. At the beginning it was considered a lower division within the world of comedy, but over the years its fame rose. In Argentina, Stand Up Comedy emerged in 2000, when two friends met to start this new scenic language. At that time, it was really innovative in the Latin American country.
This is how Diego Wainstein and Alejandro Angelini began to meet twice a week at Teatro Liberarte; other comedians also participated intermittently. Over time, these friends continued researching books and performing their own monologues in various shows, where they invited other well-known figures such as Hugo Fili, Sergio Limbardini and Martin Rocco. Stand-up comedy in Argentina gained great acceptance, so it grew progressively and rapidly.
