I do not understand the French love for slapstick. How the same people who have such a love for fine art, who are so expressive in their language and style, can be into things like this.....

Ah well.

Well, this guy is in fact from Quebec, Canada. He used to be part of a comic duo called "les fou bracs" (could be translated by the f** crazy guys). They did all sorts or weird numbers like that including: using trmaploines to change pants within 2 seconds, getting in a giant ballon (he was inside the ballon!),playing Mozart's songs with a bicycle pump ...

The duo dissolved a long time ago. I guess their kind of humor didn't please everybody.

@Ben - what's his name?

Long time reader, first time poster - thank you Vowe, this delightfull silliness has absolutely made my day!

As an aside, wouldn't it be amusing if this guy opened LotusSphere to show that IBM has a sense of humour and isn't limited to a serious Patrick Stewart quoting the St Crispins day speech...

I know it's a bit late, but his name is Michel Lauziere.

I am writing a blog about the Blue Man Group (that I rediscoverd thanks to Vowe) and they so remind me of the "Fou bracs"... I came across this post while digging some info on the guys...
