“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.
He began his solo career in 1989, after working with a partner for a few years. Since then, he has performed in more than 50 countries, on the 5 continents. He has done TV shows, festivals, corporate events, commercials or one-man-shows in over 400 cities, including Beijing, Hong-Kong, Tokyo, Seoul, Singapore, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile, Lima, Bogota, Caracas, Mexico City, Miami, New-York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Toronto, Montreal, Paris, London, Rome, Milan, Monte-Carlo, Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Marrakech, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin, Munich, Oslo, Innsbruck, Zurich, Vienna, Budapest, Athens, Dubai, and Istanbul.
Michel Lauziere has presented his full show in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Japanese. Also, for TV appearances, he can perform short visual and musical numbers, learning just a few efficient punch lines in any language!
With numerous appearances on the most prestigious television networks in Europe, Asia, South America, North America (guest on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and on the Late Show with David Letterman) and with several viral clips on the Web, Michel Lauzière ranks among the most appreciated visual comedians in the world.
Artist of universal appeal, Lauzière is one of the few comedian-performers who can charm and entertain audiences of all social backgrounds, all ages, and all cultures.
Michel Lauziere takes us on a fascinating tour of how he has taken every-day objects we might find stashed away in our kitchen drawers and converted these items into surprising musical instruments from a turkey baster that changes pitch with a simple squeeze to his homemade “spoon-a-phone.” As he logically points out: “My instruments are so simple, why should they wear complicated names?”
Wowing the audience with his “Symphony of Kitchen Objects,” the unpredictable performing artist demonstrates various ways of harnessing and combining his unique orchestra. His outrageous inventions and the resulting entertainment factor might just make you see your mundane possessions in a new light.
