Georges Holmes

[post 401]

I have yet to find any biographical information on the multi-talented Georges Holmes, but this performance is from the French tv show La Piste aux Etoiles, from the same 1959 broadcast as Les Marcellys in my previous post. Also, his first name is spelled the French way, and the few words he speaks are in French, so let's assume he's French. He's a tap dancer, acrobat, magician, and object manipulator. He's quite the human smokestack, and also does one of my favorite "stupid human tricks," the back roll with the cup of water. A variety artist full of variety!
