Determined to follow the road of the show, during the Eighties he changed his original name to the one we know him by, taking inspiration from the star Elvis Presly and alternating work as a manual worker on the stage of the Maurizio Costanzo Show. It is here that, presented as a “metropolitan poet”, he reads his rude and erudite verses in kissed rhyme in the manner of a forced Roman. Appearing in the same literary role also in some episodes of DeeJay Television, the character of the Roman poet hits the audience, who adore him, so much so that Ricky Tognazzi in 1991 he offered him a part next to Claudio Amendola is Gianmarco Tognazzi in Ultra, film with which he won the European Film Award for Best Supporting Actor.

It is precisely on the small screen that the Roman actor manages to cover a vastness of characters, sometimes even contrasting ones: from the lawyer Claudio Bruni in the medical drama White crimes (2008) to one of the leading exponents of the criminal gang de The narcotics (2011).
In the meantime, his presence at the cinema has become less constant, but Memphis will return to frequently contaminate the big screen with his unbridled sympathy and his Roman accent since 2011, when he is one of the students whose diploma was canceled.
