Well Michael, the Great El Swanno is quite a guy. Along with what chanteyranger mentioned, he also had a high dive act that met with mixed reviews, hence the retirment of the gorilla suit......well actually half a gorilla suit. He would climb to a perch on a 90 foot tower dressed in half a gorilla suit and fishnet hose, leap off, ignite a monstrous fart, and rocket down into a fire helmet filled with lime jello. This inspired both applause and some massive coronaries so you can see why he no longer performs the act.
Well ES.....unhh....unhh....POW. ...... and a Happy Birthday too!!!
