Weirdest stage act ever,

Postby rickoshay85 » Wed Apr 25, 2012 9:27 pm

Joseph Pujol (June 1, 1857–1945). He was famous for his remarkable control of the abdominal muscles, which enabled him to fart at will.

Some of the highlights of his stage act involved sound effects of cannon fire and thunderstorms, as well as playing "'O Sole Mio" and "La Marseillaise" on an ocarina through a rubber tube in his anus.[2] He could also blow out a candle from several yards away.[1] His audience included Edward, Prince of Wales, King Leopold II of the Belgians and Sigmund Freud.

"Le Pétomane" was used as the governor's name in Blazing Saddles.

Totally on-topic link.

You should check out some of his other songs, too. :lol:
