About Rafael Portugal

Rafael Portugal was born and raised in Realengo, in the west zone of Rio, 36 kilometers from the city centre. With little financial resources in his youth, he had access to the artistic world through a cultural project in his neighborhood. Today he is one of the best-known comedians in Brazil, with success in theater, television, streaming and cinema.

As a young man, he wrote romantic songs in Realengo. His songwriting partner on “João de Barro” was Leandro Leo, an actor who played in Pesadelo do Sítio do Picapau Amarelo between 2002 and 2005. They met at a bus stop in the neighborhood, when Rafael asked to borrow the phone to make a call to mother. Leandro invited him to attend one of his presentations in the south zone. “I come home and say: ‘mom, I met an actor today, I really wanted to meet him’. My mother got some passage money borrowed from a neighbor. My life was a lot of my mother borrowing money, people around me believing a lot on me.”

Before entering the artistic world, he worked in countless other things as a supermarket stocker and office assistant. At the age of 15, he joined Cia. Atos e Atores, encouraged by his mother.

He started making videos on the internet on the Ixi channel, in 2011, with friends from the neighborhood. Shortly afterward he was called to enter the Parafernalha channel. In 2015 he participated in the Multishow Humor Award, reaching the final.

His success led him to be called, in the same year, to join the cast of Porta dos Fundos, where his career took off. He made his film debut in 2016 in the film Porta dos Fundos: Contract Vitalício, where he played Paulo. In the same year, he joined the cast of the humorous program A Culpa é do Cabral, where he remains until today.

In 2020, he debuted on Big Brother Brasil a humorous painting entitled Cat BBB, which is a success among the public.

He also invested in cinema as part of the films Chorar de Rir, Carcereiros – O Filme, Os Espetaculares, Amor Sem Medida, Juntos e Enrolados, and Tô Ryca 2.

In addition, he is always present in Porta dos Fundos’ End of Year specials.
