VIDEOS: Moving Making Funny

Back in the early days of our courtship, Beloved Spousal Unit invited me to see Mummenschanz - described in a brief Wikipedia article as "Swiss pantomime troupe who perform in a surreal mask- and prop-oriented style."  This hardly captures their rich, creative, and profoundly funny sensibility.  Their work is timeless.  I came across them again this morning and it was as though no time had passed at all since I first saw them.

These 1st two videos were shown on The Muppet Show.

This last, longer video shows some of the troupe's theater-based work (with visual shout outs to the folks who make it at the end).
