Pucho [Pero Why Not?] Fernandez, RIP

I don’t know how his material will hold up, but no matter. I will remember him fondly. Pucho ‘Cartucho’ Fernandez made my friend, fellow sports degenerate and current Herald Boxing writer, Santos Perez, laugh on literally hundreds of occasions in either listening to his material [classic ‘pero why not’ riff], but more often recalling that which [inexplicably] made us laugh back then. Truth be told, we knew he wasn’t any Richard Pryor, but he was ours [Cuban-born] dammit. Just learned that he was the son of the more-famous comedian, ‘Tres Patines’. Godspeed Leopoldo Fernandez.
