Grock CD

King of Clowns - (VAR71)

In his day, Grock was once the highest paid entertainer in the world, and is remembered for his act which combined musical wit and expertise with tumbling and fooling around. Although a very visual performer, he made several audio recordings of his act based on his stage show. Fluent in several languages, he also composed numerous songs and tunes some of which were recorded by L'Orchestre Musette de Grock and are included on this CD.
In 1917, Grock met the young Winston Churchill. Congratulating him, Churchill said "Well Grock, I must say that the best comics in the world are English." "But I am Swiss," said Grock. "Then you must get yourself naturalised at once" Churchill snapped.
