ME: Senor Wences, believe it or not, only had one routine.  He had an
act of about thirty minutes in length and he did it over and over, in
different languages with only minor variations, for over sixty years.
When you saw him on TV, you saw him performing excerpts from that one

He did every bit of it at least twice on the Ed Sullivan Show and
those tapes still exist, but I don't know if they've been released.
Let me ask around.
