Red Skelton’s More Funny Faces (1984) with Marcel Marceau
In short, Red Skelton’s More Funny Faces is a short (46 minutes) live performance on the stage in Canada. He performs some of his classic jokes and routines. He share the stage with the great mime Marcel Marceau, and one bit with All the Land. It is literally laugh out loud funny, and highly recommended.
