José Miguel Monzón, also known as ‘El Gran Wyoming’, ‘Big Wyoming’ is an actor, director and a very popular Spanish humorist. He was born in Madrid, Spain, in 1955.
He has been showman of several programmes, such as “Silencio se juega” (1984), “La noche se mueve” (1992) and “El peor programa de la semana” (1993). Televisión Española (Spanisn National Television) refused to broadcast this last episode because of an interview with the writer Quim Monzó, in which a joke was made about the laboral activity of Elena de Borbón, the King’s daughter. The official reason given was the low ratings of the program.
In 1995 Wyoming returned to TV, but this time he appeared on private Channel Telecinco.The name of the program was “Caiga quien caiga”. He was firstly critical about Felipe Gonzalez’s government and later the government of that time, the Partido Popular, the right party.
In 2004 he obteined another programme in the National Spanish Televisión: “La Azotea de Wyoming”. It was not completely susccessful.
Now he is doing “El Intermedio” on “La Sexta” Channel.
