Gregorio Esteban Sánchez Fernández (born 24 October 1932 in Málaga), known as Chiquito de la Calzada, is a Spanish flamenco singer and actor, although he is more famous as a stand-up comedian. Chiquito de la Calzada became very popular in Spanish TV shows (especially "Genio y Figura") during the mid-nineties due to his unique style, strongly based on a surreal approach to jokes and language. Some of his characteristic words and expressions quickly became memes and are now part of Spanish slang. His moves and jargon were so influential to other Spanish comedians, that some TV characters such as Crispín Klander, Lucas Grijander and Nuñito de la Calzada were entirely built around his own repertoire. There is a mod for the video game Doom featuring his voice.
His wife, Josefa García Gómez, died in 2012.
