Hey all!
It's been a while since I have posted any work on here. I am in the finishing and building stages for a new show/character and thought I would share here..
The show revolves around an inept Safari 'Know-nothing-Know-it-all' character (me in a large prosthetic nose and Safari outfit) who attempts to teach people about different animals (puppets)..
It all goes wrong, of course!
Anyways, here is the test make-up of the Character.. more progress pics to follow!

It brings back memories of Steve Martin in "Roxanne." I haven't thought of that movie in a long time. Yours is a FUN costume that immediately grabs attention. I love the mustache!

Thanks Tim!
Most of my shows these days are adult shows; so I wanted to put something together to make me more marketable to kids and families.. So I appreciate your comment about it being fun and attention grabbing!
It has been a long time since I have seen Roxanne as well! But it's a good one.. I am a big fan of Jose Ferrer in Cyrano as well - which goes much further back.
Back To Roxanne - It was filmed in British Columbia (I'm located near Vancouver) in a town called Nelson.. They have a big mural dedicated to the movie in their town square..
Thanks again for the kind words!

Hi Russo!
That sounds like a lot of fun.. One could almost turn it into an Abbott and Costello-esque bit!
another approach/extension would be teaching how to spell with words that end up being other letters:
Example: 'E' as in Eye (i), 's' as in See (c), 'C' as in Cue (Q), 'A' as in Arrr, 'Y' as in You (u), 'E' as in Ex (x), 'W' as in why (y)..
Wow - 70 years as a performer!!
That's incredible! I value your advice and feedback a lot!
Thanks again!

I used to have 1 figure teach the other- and I could stop any arguing - if a child(or even an adult) is availabel then I'd have them teach "Rusty"(my RagAmerican friend L-O-L)another bit for"J or K"- 'oh that's your girl friend?' - "NO"says the child -'Oh yes,I saw you kissing her'.Also when the figure is asked to say the ABS's fast - the figure would say half -then da da da da ,then you'd to stop him and ask him to say it correctly. Have a few effects & ideas -glad to share- go to 'search' and put in 'russo'(also a lot of personal comments - if you wand to wade through them- L-O-L)- majority from the Gospel Magician forum - don't own P/C - use where I work p/t(to make up for cost of living !!??)- so, off line from Thurs PM to Mon AM -- Ralph(russo)Rousseau

The costume and make-up look great. I'm sure the show is, too.

Has anyone done the "fist" figure like "Johnny", with Ventrioquist Senior Wences and "Alright" ???? - Also know Max Terhune and "Elmer"?? - Max and I worked for and together many times in the late 60'-early '70's. We (WIfe and I) knew Edgar Bergen and"Charlie" in So. Calif.(L.A.) -- if you don't know who they are - 'google' them - they were a lot of fun. Ralph(russo)Rousseau
