Marcel Marceau

For those of you who might not be aware, Michael was a great fan of Marcel Marceau... Marcel Marceau was probably known as the BEST mime ever... Michael has always admired him for his talent, the level of emotion and passion the mime put in his work and how he could express emotions by simply miming...

The Mime died in 2007 at 84 and unfortunately, some of his belongings have to be sold to pay off creditors, including his most famous outfit, that of his most famous character, Bip.

For an example of a sketch by him, here is The Lion Tamer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWbtGAF_gXc&feature=related

Also, here is a short report saying how the Mime inspired Mike and with a few images of them together in 1995: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xj8oIrdGNiw&feature=related
