Jokes & Cigarettes

PREMIERE · 1 November, 2023

Barcelona, late 60’s. Eugenio Jofra, a young jeweler, meets Conchita on a bus. They immediately fall for each other and begin the love story of their lives. Eugenio learns to play the guitar to accompany Conchita, for which he will have to fight stage fright. Thus begins the musical career of “Els dos”. When Conchita has to leave Barcelona for two weeks, she convinces Eugenio to perform by himself. When she returns, Eugenio has become a phenomenon of underground comedy in the city. Little by little, between the two of them, they build a character: the glasses, the black shirt, the stool, the cigarettes and the tube glass, which will become an unexpected success in a depressed Spain, desperate to laugh with this singular comedian who begins all his jokes with “Saben aquell…”
