CHICO ANYSIO

"Chico is: an author of books, a writer and actor of theatre, a one-man show, a writer of television comedy, a radio performer, star of radio and TV commercials, a composer; (...) a great artist who works within a sector given short shrift by intellectual elites, but which is of great popular penetration and profound social repercussion."
Artur da Távola

"He’s as simple as a good-morning and happier than two boatloads of sparrows at the end of the afternoon. But how hard he grabs the reader by the scruff of his neck!"
José Cândido de Carvalho on "O tiete do agreste"

"(...) Chico Anísio is not only the extraordinary actor we all admire. He’s also a novelist, a serious writer who has a lot to say and who knows how to say it, and must be read."
João Ubaldo Ribeiro, preface in: "Negro Leo"
