Spanish comic playwright. He was one of the most successful playwrights of his era. He wrote approximately 300 dramatic works, both sainetes (short vignettes) and longer plays, often in collaboration with Pedro Pérez Fernández or Enrique García Álvarez. His most ambitious and best known play is La venganza de Don Mendo (Don Mendo's Revenge, 1918); other major works include La barba de Carrillo (Carrillo's Beard, 1918) and Pepe Conde (1920).

Castellanos quotes birth certificate

Sy Scholfield notes from his Wikipedia entry that "Muñoz Seca loved palindromic numbers [so] he often claimed that he was born in 1881. He also claimed to have been born at 10:15 pm, 'the normal time for shows to start.'" See: "Biblioteca teatral" by Valentín Azcune (CSIC, 2007), p. 84: "Propalé e hice constar en todas mis biografías, incluso en la oficial, que rige los destinos de mi destino, que había venido al mundo el 20 de febrero de 1881, a las diez y cuarto de la noche, hora corriente de comenzar los espectáculos."
