Career

Los Hermanos Castro

As a teenager, he joined his cousins' musical group Los Hermanos Castro. The original group started in Mexico City during the late 1950s with three brothers, Arturo, Javier and Jorge Castro, a few years later their first cousin Gualberto Castro entered the group. The group enjoyed a great deal of success throughout the United States, Europe and South America. When the group was performing in a long term contract in Las Vegas, Benito entered the group because if it were necessary for one of the Castros to take time off, the group could continue working. Benito sang harmony and played guitar, but he also gave the group a new "zing" with his on stage antics and comedy. His personality gave the group a new dimension. According to Benito, he "fell in love with a dancer in a show in Las Vegas," they married and he became a "father at a young age."

When Los Hermanos Castro returned to Mexico, Castro continued to play gigs with Los Hermanos Castro, but also formed a musical duo with Kiko Campos. "Benito and Kiko" played in Night Clubs throughout Mexico, recorded albums and still performed together in nightclubs and concerts, when Benito was not performing with Los Hermanos Castro.

Television

Benito created the personality "Kin Kin from Acapulco" for the Mexican television show La Carabina de Ambrosio from 1979 to 1983. His comedy skits portraying a sun-tanned, raggedy cut-off jean, flip-flop wearing beach bum in Acapulco was a take off of Bob Denver's role on "Gilligan's Island." His ability to imitate and mimic others like Bob Denver, politicians and singers opened the door for Benito to participate in another Mexican Television show called "La Ensalda de Locos" (Crazy People Salad). Here, he outrageously imitated people in the public eye and poked fun at their peculiarities so much so that the show was removed from television. Benito had a working relationship with the radio and television personality Paco Stanley and "how terrible it was for him to learn of the death of his friend."

Later in the 1980s, Castro wrote the theme to the television series Anabel, and continued to appear in other television series. He first teamed with Maria Elena Saldana on Paco Stanley's Andale! in 1993, creating the character "El Papagringo." His comedy skits portraying him as the father of Saldana's "La Guereja" character led to two television series, La Güereja y algo más and La Güereja de mi vida, which ended in 2001.

Despite the death of Stanley and the departures of Saldana and Anabel Ferreira (Ferreira returned to Televisa in 2008), Castro continued to appear in other Televisa-produced series.
