Happy B-day Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, better known as Molière. Molière turns 396 this month.
If you don’t know about his life, you gotta go on my tour. If you don’t know about his death, you gotta read my book.
Here’s a little preview: Molière pulled a Dick Shawn way before Dick Shawn.
Who was Dick Shawn? Are you kidding me? Stop what you’re doing immediately and watch this clip from It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
Anyway, good ol’ DS put that much energy into everything he did, and had them laughing all the way to the end, and beyond! During a comical performance at UCSD (that’s right, Trevor!) he had a heart attack on stage and died. For several minutes everyone thought it was part of the act. Dick Shawn was always pulling pranks like that of dubious taste (hey, sounds a lot like me). But not this time, bucko, it was for realsies.
Now, I bet you can’t wait to read about Molière’s final act, can you?
I’ll guide you to his final resting place on my VoiceMap tours of the Père Lachaise cemetery, and recite stories from his life. See funny pictures and text from our picnic together in The Chairfather book.
The passed have never been more alive!
Book a lunch date with the fallen famous NOW!
Really, it doesn’t matter. Their agendas are quite open.
