Still reeling from one of the weirdest weeks/months/times in my life I now turn my attention to mimes.

I have been thinking a lot about mimes recently.

Only because in the show I am currently doing, there is a part where I wear a scary white mask that makes me look somewhat like a mime. (Shameless plug – check.)

Now when mimes are miming, I guess they take requests from the crowd. So when someone shouts “The box! Do the bit in the box!” Do they have to? Is that like “Freebird” for a mime? Or can a mime silently defy the crowd and just climb a ladder that isn’t really there?

Do all mimes need LeCoq training? Can anybody do it? What is a mime’s annual salary?

Please give me something else to do so I stop thinking about mimes.
