Hilarious physical comedy by the extraordinary Michel Lauzire
********************************

     Inventor? Juggler? Comedian? Musician? There's no single description that can capture the versatility of Michel Lauzière.

     Michel Lauzière from Canada is a true musical original, a "Master of the Unusual". As an inventor, comedian, acrobat, juggler and musician with exquisite skills and charming silliness, the multi-talented Lauzière will bring laughter to local audiences with his five-star variety programme including "The Balloon Man", a signature number that helped to secure him early international recognition.

     "Michel Lauzière - Master of Unusual Comedy" is one of the highlights of the large-scale International Arts Carnival (IAC) summer festival presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. The show will be staged from July 29 to August 1.

     Lauzière was the winner of the Radio Monte-Carlo Special Award in the 2001 Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival, Monaco. Filled with ingenious contraptions, countless eye-popping outfits and hilarious routines, the unforgettable show created by Lauzière will keep audience members laughing from start to finish.

     Not only is the creative humorist able to conjure up the well-known song "O Sole Mio" using water pistols and dishes, but by donning an eccentric helmet plus antenna he can also become a one-man band playing hits like "We Will Rock You". And dressed in his special "hornophone" suit, he can even perform classics by Beethoven, Vivaldi and Strauss.
