Jaime "El Flaco" Agudelo (November 10, 1925 – December 21, 2009) was a Colombian comedian and actor.
In 1961 he traveled to Bogotá where he met Fernando González Pacheco, who helped him to make a name for himself while performing on the TV show, Operación Ja ja. Agudelo later worked for Campeones de la Risa in 1966 for two years.
He was one of the earliest cast members for Colombia's most famous comedy show in local TV history: Sábados Felices, which is still running after 39 years. Agudelo worked there ever since until his death. His most remembered performance was portraying a child called "Jaimito". The comedian never sought to retire from the program, not even asking for leave because of health issues (with the exceptions being the instances of two heart attacks).
