Hi, do you have any unusual speciality acts near to you. Just a few miles from my home there is:

I can only imagine what that act is...especially because the site goes to some shopping site. Please check it and let us know where it is.

The link should work perfectly Kevin, and take you to the website of the world's only performing FLATULIST. I notice that on Methane's site there is a banner ad for a sex site, so this may possibly cause restricted access for some people. But 'Methane' is a bona fide act and has been seen and heard all over the world, and once the initial surprise passes one realises there is a certain amount of unique dexterity in the act. Whilst I am no expert on the subject I believe the wind Mr. Methane uses, both to play basic tunes and to blow out what appears to be a talc powder-type substance, is not created by high fibre foods and digestion, but is somehow injested through the rectum into the lower bowel. There appears to be no external device used to 'pump up' the lower bowel, so it is all quite a mystery!

That was a riot...I did have to type in the URL myself, but no big deal. He definitely has an unique act; thanks for sharing.

I'm guessing this is one performance you would NOT want a front row seat for! And I assume for safety reasons he only performs in "non-smoking" venues...

Mr. Methane may be the world's only performing "flatulist" now, but a century ago, the toast of Paris was a performer who worked under the name of Le Petomane. He would come on stage in evening dress, turn his back to the audience, and "produce" music at will.
(The name -- Le Petomane -- translates roughly as "The Fartist"; fans of Mel Brooks will recall that, in Blazing Saddles, Brooks used the name -- Governor Le Petomane -- for his own character.)

For more information on Le Petomane go to Learned Pigs and Fireproof Women by Ricky Jay. A very interesting book...

One of the dark secrets of my past is that I 'discovered' and co-managed a performer called "Elvis Aris (the Amazing Bottom Impersonator)". He did visual impersonations of famous people with his bottom - occasionally assisted by a few props such as a pipe for Popeye or a cigar for Sir Winston Churchill. We once managed to get him a spot on live UK television in which he did Churchill and Elvis Presley.

I promise you, I'm not making this up.... Smile

It would be, er, not nice, - but interesting shall we say, to see any links to 'Elvis Aris' career as a bottom impersonator, Huw. Does anything exist on the web?

I presume his TV appearance was a late night one!!
