“Master of Unusual comedy”, Michel Lauziere combines his talents as an inventor, showman, musician, and polyglot to dazzle audiences around the world. His bizarre visual standup acts have captivated an estimated 1 billion viewers.

In one of his most famous performances done for the Late Show with David Letterman, Lauziere rollerbladed through a closed street, playing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Symphony No. 40 on 284 tuned wine bottles filled with varying quantities of water. From playing classical music on bicycle pumps to juggling children's swimming pools, he’s taken his unique acts to over 45 countries and performed them in six languages.

During the 1980s, Lauziere chose to follow his natural yearn to perform, leaving his budding career as an editorial cartoonist to start up his one-man show. His programs are not just passive entertainment; rather his creative genius inspires audiences to think up new ways to do something and not rely on the tried-and-true methods.
