Fidel Pintos. Jorge Porcel led, but he saw that people applauded me.

You know what? He stopped talking to me for a year and a half ", he recalled.

When Néstor Kirchner arrived at La Rosada, Tristán was at the center of the scene, but not only because of his role as a humorist but also because of his great resemblance to the former president.

"I'll tell you: one day I was returning from New York on the same flight as Néstor Kirchner and the commander tells me come on, come on, and it happens to me first. He was wrong, I thought," began his story.

"It was quite common. At first it turns out that Kirchner was also there and when we got down we greeted each other, but discreetly. He was going ahead and I see that he bumped into something. I look at him and yell at him: "Don't imitate me, eh!", he closed the

Complaint days

In recent times it was in the news for issues outside the world of entertainment.

Five years ago she had to go out to defend herself for an alleged case of "sexual harassment".

The actress Rita Pauls, daughter of Alan, the writer, said that she was sexually harassed by Tristán during the recordings of

Historia de un clan

, the strip that was broadcast on TNT and Telefe.

The comedian was "surprised" by her statements and

accused the young woman of "seeking fame" with her complaint.

Taking advantage of a television program, he claimed to feel "outrage, sadness and anguish."

And she said: "I'm the first to be surprised by all this. After three years of

History of a clan

, let her come and talk now… This girl wants to be famous, it seems to me."

That situation led to a "wave" of similar accusations.

The media Cinthia Fernández took advantage of the move to recall a complaint that she had made public in 2007 for "injuries and threats", after sharing the stage with him in the play Más

Jésica's tail touched her and we had to shut up because if they didn't throw us out, "said Fernández.

From Sofovich to Tinelli

Once, when asked about the "gerardization" of television or "tinellization", Tristán defined himself: "

You give Sofovich an apple and a yenga and he keeps the public in suspense for seven hours.

Tinelli buys ideas from abroad. They are not ideas of him. He goes and pays. It's like I went to Broadway, I see such a successful musical comedy and I bring it. Do you understand?", he raised. 

He worked with Adolfo Stray, with Negro Olmedo, with Porcel, with Marrone.

Did it reach the category of capocomico?

"People tell me that I am a capocomico.

There are not many capocomics. They are not left. Gasalla, Pinti. They do,

" he said at the time.

"In my case, I think it did not happen because I did not have my own television program. And a representative. But I am grateful. People laugh with me. A lot. Forgive me for this rapture of vanity," he stressed.
