Sacre Bleu!! I've wondered when anyone was going to bring back le Petomane! I've read about his work in an underground comic from the eighties (my dad is a huge undergorund comic fan). The comic book was titled "The Compleat Fart" and went into history and lore of the universal human body functions, incuding flatus, mucus, sweat, earwax etc. in an incredibly funny and entertaining way. Much of the book is quite informative as it is researched well.

The section on Le Petomane even goes to his origins as a young lad, how he learned when he held his breath underwater, water would rush into his rectum. He found this gift useful in entertaining his army buddies, then became a professional performer after the war. Kudos to you and anyone else who brings back to obscure acts of centuries ago.

BTW, where is this tribute performance located?

Just a few thoughts my friend:

Dog barking
Celebrity impersonations:
Price Charles
George Bush
Madonna farting
Ages of man:
Baby fart (mess in diaper)
Toddler fart (check pants)
Teenage fart (let it rip)
Courting fart (hold it in, release slow and quiet)
After you’re married fart (let it rip)
Middle age fart (Check pants)
Old age fart (mess in diaper)

Lines: Did you hear something”
Weapons of mass destruction
Something just doesn’t smell right about this
With today’s price of gas, how much is this worth?
Oops, I think I pulled something.
It’s a dirty job, but someone’s got to do it.
Some say this act stinks, some say I’m full of crap, but for those who want to know the whole story, see me after I change. I’ll have something to show you.
I know what you’re thinking, Boxers or briefs?

Fire trick (with lighter)

Play a song

Good luck.

Wow thanks Tony!

The grand finale involves lighting them to Tchaikovsky's 1812...

Hi Nippulini,

It is the Kingston Rowing Club, Hull, UK and it is a 50th birthday party...

I thought it a good opportunity to try a new routine out...

If all goes as I hope/suspect I will be performing it again...


not sure when I'll get to Philadelphia, though you never know...

Cheers,

Corona

Corona:

For a birthday party, I'd end with the song Candle in the Wind.

Tony...add this classic:


Actress Tallulah Bankhead in an elevator let one go...the elevator operator noticed and gave her a glare. She replied to the glare..
"Yes...I did it...I hope you don't think I smell like this all the time!"

Hang on a minute Doug, you told me it was the Queen of England that said that....

I've been telling everyone.

Tony, That song is synonymous with Lady Di over here now, after Elton John sang it at her funeral.....


The Blue Danube is another good one for a call & response type thing.

The Old Ones are really going to like this! You've been diligent in research and have worked very hard to capacitate yourself for this cross-century treat. Have a great time tomorrow evening with your very lucky audience.

That's true. You wouldn't want to risk doing something that was in bad taste. LOL

Just kidding, sounds like it gonna be a funny show.

The intro line is...Let 'er rip!

People talk about gastronomical discoveries. This is (in a deep voice) the day after...

If you put your heart and soul into it, something'll come out of it.

Tony passed all the really good ones. I'll pass on the rest...

Only in jest my silly friend...it was Tallulah. The Queen always blames it on the Footman.

You say the act is "odorless" so I can only assume that the emissions will be electronic or mechanical somehow. If this is the case, then "flight of the bumblebee" seems like a wonderful song to demonstrate your gastric powers, with lots of comedic possibilities. I also think that expelling gas to an overblown orchestral piece, such as Zarathustra (the theme to "2001: a space odyssey"), or something like that would be great as well. Also, a high-tone reading of "Beans Beans the magical fruit" would be nice. Don't forget the classic:

"Arty Farty had a party,
Everyone was there.
Tutti Frutti let a beauty,
And they all went out for air!"

Be sure to look up "Mr. Methane" (the modern day Le Petomane):

I just discovered Mr. Methane today thanks Marvello, and you are right I will be resorting to fakery, including flash paper for the grand finale, I thought of Zarathustra, but have decided to go with the Blue Danube (piano accompaniment, true to Le Petomane) and a rousing 1812 for the fireworks, when I will be attempting to launch myself into the stratosphere....

Thanks also for the poem, I will use it tonight...


A bronx cheer to you all!

There's a great documentary out on him where they show some of the things he used for his act. And they had interviews with people who knew him (including his grandson) plus a lot of of rare footage. Definatly an interesting watch.

I'd like to see that Magicjared, sounds wonderful...

Well the show was a success, not a dry eye in the house....
I even had a lady called Glenys playing the Blue Danube for me...

I plan to do it again tomorrow at a local Cabaret/Scratch night, where I will iron out a couple of things.

I won't describe the act here as I don't want to bore you all,

but roughly, I start with a few impressions, then recite a couple of poems, then two short musical pieces, ending with the 1812 ignition and blast off...

many thanks for all your input...

Cheers, Corona
