Its Mime! It's French! It's Marcel Marceau seeing things that aren't there!

World renowned performer Marcel Marceau brings to you two hours of dramatic tripping as only he can. Minutes before gracing the stage Marcel will drop enough high quality acid to ensure the strangest of improvised theatrics - never before seen or unseen . .

Tickets are selling fastly.

       And how do you know he won't just lie on the floor giggling for 8 hours?

       giggle.

       Watching mime is too much like a bad trip, as is.

       How about if the audience took the acid and Marcel did crank? I'd pay for that.

       Since when were we ever given a say about having mime artists thrust in our faces? Give him Ketamine, that's what I say, and lots of it.

       there's a saying "when on ketamine don't dance near a bookshelf" which probably doesn't apply to mime artists with no props. Worth remembering though.

       At the end of the performance, [UB]? I'm not too sure, but I doubt it would be coherent.

       Oh so it's OK to trap mime artists in large glass boxes but it's not OK to give them mind expanding drugs. Is that what we're saying here? Is it? Is it?

Did you really think that this was a good way to get a croissant? Really?

       Remember, mime is money.

       Remember, slime is runny!

       Mimes actually have a really precise art. If you added LSD then you'd just have a tripped out guy flopping around and I can see that en mass any weekend of the schoolyear at my college. Speaking of which there is an inordinant amount of mimes in my school's theatre department. PS. I like apricots.

       This is a fantastic idea, but have him drop an hour or two before, so he's good and freaked out by the time he comes on stage.   

       Alternative: Have audience trip, and watch a tripping mime discourse on his trials and tribulations with tympanis booming on random occasion in the background. Release a dozen bats halfway though.   

       We're in bat country...

       Look, he's acting like he's trapped inside a melting box.

       Why was this fishboned?
david_scothern, Sep 09 2005
  

       Because mimes are a plague that must be eradicated.
coprocephalous, Sep 09 2005
  

       I've never understood the popular loathing of mimes in the US (as exemplified in many Gary Larsen cartoons); is it because they look silly, or because they approach people and annoy them?   

       Personally, I find telemarketers more annoying...
Adze, Sep 10 2005
  

       Give them acid alright, hydrochloric though.
benindubai, Sep 10 2005
  

       [d_s] - It's probably because watching other people tripping gets really boring after not very long, mime artist or no.
