La Trinca




La Trinca

Tariro, tariro

After the success of ‘No passa res!’ and ‘Guaita que fan ara!’ on autonomous television, Televisión Española made a heavy commitment to the comedy of ‘La Trinca’ to lead a comedy show in prime time. This is how the programme ‘Tariro, tariro’, came about, a suggestive title containing the essence of the trio from Canet.

The Spanish audience enjoyed the twenty-six programmes packed with musical numbers, gags and unforeseen interviews with the most popular figures. Toni Cruz, Josep Maria Mainat and Miquel Angel Pascual put their best numbers into Castilian and adapted their best sketches for national broadcasting.

Their success was the verification that originality, warmth and good humour know no frontiers of language. Each week a popular personality was the special guest around whom the programme revolved. Famous people from all walks of life as diverse as Sara Montiel, Narcís Serra, Lola Flores, Núria Espert, Manuel Fraga Iribarne or Pedro Ruiz were some of the stars of the show.

All of them were interviewed in a humorous way by Josep M. Mainat, Toni Cruz and Miquel Àngel Pascual, who tried, successfully, to reveal the hidden side of their guest: those abilities or interests unknown to the general public. Another success of the programme was the zany and original family that had already become famous on Catalan autonomous television and played by ‘La Trinca’. They were the origin of many gags and short stories in which actors such as Imma Colomer, Mercè Arànega, Carme Conesa, Àngels Gonyalons and Alicia Orozco took part.

Barres i Estrelles / Tariro Verano

After the success of 26 Tariro, tariro programmes, the management at Televisión Española once again entrusted Gestmusic to produce the summer version of the popular programme under the name of Tariro verano. The format was practically the same: musical numbers, invited guests and lots of gags. In order to give it a more summery atmosphere, the original family of La Trinca went to a campsite on the coast from where different situations were presented. The central theme, of course, was also to do with the season of the year. Before Tariro verano, Gestmusic produced Barres i Estrelles, a programme with an identical format for the Catalan channel of Televisión Española.
