Default Un Chiste (Re. Podcast 4)

Re. Podcast 4

¿como es? = What does he/she look like?

Un chiste corto :

Un pinguino entra en un bar y se dirige al camarero.
"Perdone ¿Por casualidad ha visto Usted mi hermano?"
"No sé ¿Como es?"

Does that mean "What does he look like?"

Yes, I think so -
I gather it can mean both : What does he/she look like ? (physical appearance)
and : What is he/she like ? (character)
Am I right ??

(In the joke the former meaning is obviously the intended meaning)

A mí, tienen todos el mismo aspecto.

Una pregunta para los españoles sobre "a personal":

¿Por casualidad ha visto Usted a mi hermano?
