CHESTY MORTIMER: Fright Wig & Comb

Belgian funnyman Paul "Chesty Mortimer" Mortier performing his fright wig and comb walkaround on the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in the 1930s.

I'd been doing one for the last 3 years when I found this photo.

That's one scary as hell comb in Chesty's hand. Patrick you do a great job with this bit. Everyone laughs and no one gets gangrene.
