About Rafi Bastos: Unfamiliar Territory

Rafi Bastos is a 6’7” tall Jewish-Brazilian comedian with an accent like Dracula and a rapidly growing social media presence. In his home-country of Brazil, Rafi is a trailblazer of comedy, social media and is one of the first comedians to pioneer the art of American-style stand-up comedy in Brazil.

Rafi’s 17-year comedy and acting career, before coming to the United States, garnered many firsts and was covered in an interview on The Joe Rogan Experience. After setting more than a few records, he opened a stand up comedy club and continuously created National controversy by challenging Brazil’s oppressive laws surrounding freedom of speech.

Rafi’s videos of his stage performances, music videos, interviews and sketches have had more than 370 million views on his YouTube channel alone. Among his many credits, Rafi has three comedy specials on Netflix: Arte do Insulto, Péssima Influencia, and Ultimato. He has starred in movies, had his own controversial talk show, been an in-field journalist and hosted reality shows (Ultimate Beastmaster for Netflix). He is the co-founder and owner of Comedians, the largest comedy club in South America.

Let’s just say Rafi has done almost everything in Brazil and now he’s in the UK to do it all with a fresh perspective - in unfamiliar territory.
