Stefan Kramer Solís (born 19 February 1982 in Santiago) is a Chilean impressionist, actor, comedian and announcer. He comes from a descendant German Swiss family in Araucanía Region,[1] and he's married with the singer Paloma Soto. Kramer is better known in Chile by copying - with a great accuracy - the voice accents, gestures and expressions of dozens of characters from the Chilean media, like TV hosts, singers, politicians, sports players, sportscasters and celebrities, generally.


His first TV appearance was as a contestant on ¿Cuánto vale el Show? on Chilevisión. Therefore, his debut as an impressionist would be in the TVN television show Noche de Juegos, in the comedy section of Ponce Candidato, comedy character performed by Julián Elfenbein.

He has participated in various TV shows like Mekano (Mega), Amenaza Real (Canal 13) (performing Polimorphicuz, a man who suffers multiple personalities), De Pe a Pá (TVN), REC and ¿Cuánto vale el show?, both programs from Chilevisión and hosted by Leo Caprile. In 2006 Kramer has a great success in Huaso of Olmué's Festival.

He took part successfully in the second night of the Viña de Mar Festival in 2008. In a comedy routine that lasted almost 90 minutes, Kramer impersonated around 33 characters. The audience acclaimed and awarded him with two Antorchas (Oro and Plata - English: Gold and Silver Torchs) and a Gaviota de Plata (English: Silver Seagull).[2] Many Chilean TV shows have taken advantage of the good rating that produces Kramer's routine and they have repeated it in uncountable occasions, without the comedian receives some money remuneration.[3]

One of his television appearances was on July 12, 2009, on the TVN's TV show, Animal Nocturno. In this, he personified the most important presidential candidates, Marco Enríquez-Ominami as invited to the TV show, Eduardo Frei Ruiz-Tagle through a supposed live link, and to Sebastián Piñera though another alleged TV link. He also personified coach Marcelo Bielsa, who was received with praise.

In 2010, he co-hosted with Felipe Camiroaga on the TV show Halcón y Camaleón on TVN, with which he achieved great success. During one of the issues of the TV show, Kramer personified Marcelo Bielsa, where he explained the alleged reasons for the impasse that he lived in La Moneda with the Chilean President Sebastián Piñera. Likewise, Kramer previously recorded an personification of Piñera, which caused displeasure within the Chilean Government, as it was held just when the ex-President Michelle Bachelet was invited.[4]

On December 2, 2011, Kramer was again as he had done years earlier at the Telethon Theater, as the first artist of the beginning of the Teletón that year, personified Miguel "Negro" Piñera, brother of Chilean President Sebastián Piñera.

As usual, Kramer appeared in the 30th Anniversary of the Chilean Telethon, but for the first time in the closing of the event in the Estadio Nacional (National Stadium), where he personified politicians and the Entertainer of the solidary crusade, Mario Kreutzberger, the worldwide famous "Don Francisco", the same of "Sábado Gigante". Kramer was recognized by Don Francisco himself and had a great time in the great show. He repeated presentations on the closures of the 2014, 2015 and 2016 versions.

On May 26, 2016, Kramer became the announcer of his own first TV show, called Kamaleón, el show de Kramer, and broadcast by TVN. Also, he was invited by Chilevision in the new version of the TV show El Club de la Comedia.
