Andreu Buenafuente Moreno (Reus, Tarragona, Spain; January 24, 1965) is a comedian, presenter and producer. He is the founder of the audiovisual company El Terrat, where he has created a number of different television, radio, theater and advertising formats. Since 2016 it has been linked to Movistar + presenting the Late motiv program in which Berto Romero, Raúl Pérez, Silvia Abril, Juan Carlos Ortega, David Broncano and Javier Coronas collaborate.
He started in the sports section of Radio Popular Reus (COPE) at the age of 17 (1982) and seven years later he presented the program El Terrat (SER Catalunya), with which he won the Ondas Award for Best Local Radio Program in 1997. In order to register his own collaborators, he founded El Terrat, a company dedicated to “television, radio, advertising and cybernetics”. During the summer of 2002 he introduced The Island of the Mosquitoes (Cadena SER), a program where witty phrases were mixed with music. Eleven years later, on Sunday, June 30, 2013, he returned to Cadena SER with his friend and partner Berto Romero with the program No one knows anything.
His first television appearances were in 1992 under the orders of Mikimoto in Persones humanes (TV3), Arus in attack (Antena 3) and Sardà in Tot per l’audiència (TV3). Sense Titol 2 (1996), Sense Titol, Sense Vacances (1997) and Sense Titol S / N (1998), all of them produced by El Terrat and directed by Andreu along with the collaborators of his team. Above all, the most successful programs in the Catalan chain were the late show La cosa nostra (1999-2000) – a total of 268 programs from Monday to Friday, whose completion is still surrounded by controversy and urban legends – and an altra thing (2002-2004). In June 2004, this last program ended and Buenafuente accepted the offer of Antena 3 to work at the national level, in a similar line to the program Una altra cosa. In addition, other TV programs and TV3 series, such as Malalts de tele (1997), Plats bruts (1998), A pèl (2002) and Set de nit.

On December 3, 2009, Andreu moved to Madrid to present for a day The Intermediate, replacing El Gran Wyoming, who did the same in reverse. On March 24, 2010, Buenafuente made an innovation in its daily program by issuing an upside-down program – Etneufaneub -, which stands out for its originality and for keeping the same tone it always maintains in the program.3 In addition, Andreu presented live For La 1 the gala of the Goya Awards in the editions of 2010 and 2011, celebrated in the Real Theater of Madrid4 and collaborated in the Pelotas series. On June 30, 2011 Buenafuente last issued its program in La Sexta after 964 programs in four years.
In November 2011 returned to TV3 to present the double program Com va la vida?
