Actually his hands are fine, the rest of his body is tiny though.

But we wont hold it against him

But, my ryhmes are so potent that during this small segment, I've made all the women in the last three threads pregnant.

Joey,

I find this video offensive to anyone who doesn't have big hands or boards with knobs on them to help them play the piano!

Ok... so I'm jerkin your chain.LOL

Can anyone tell me the deal with the guy not wearing pants? Is it part of a regular bit or just this act?

Best,

Tim

He is the virtuoso violinist that can play to the level of the finest ever to take up a bow but prefers a 'monty python' approach. See their other videos. Go to their main site...

Listen to the purity of tone he gets from that violin. Stunning.

The videos are hilarious. But it turns out that there is some controversy. Rainer Hersh claims that Igudesman and Joo stole his material.

Yikes.

Very interesting, indeed. It would seem to be true that Joo stole the basic idea of using sticks on the piano. Nothing else, however, is the same. And IMHO, Joo is much, much funnier. So they didn't steal a whole routine; they just stole the sticks. Hmmmm.

I've seen people play guitar with their teeth, like Hendrix. Didn't make 'em any better than Hendrix, did it?

I don't know. There's a line they might have crossed, I suppose.

But you know, I watched the Ticket to Ride video five times straight, I liked it so much. Do you think Sir Paul is gonna post a video on YouTube accusing them of stealing?

It seems to me like sour grapes due to someone taking your original, simple idea and doing much bigger things with it.

Actually, I'm pretty sure I saw Victor Borge do a similar bit decades ago. BFD.
I thought Igudesman and Joo were hilarious.

You are correct. It's an Old BORGE BIT. But then most things relating to Classical Piano Humor are. Saw him live in Anchorage. Was hilarious.
