Performer adds twist to drunken rube act

Monday, February 8th, 2010

Kyle Franklin has added a twist to a routine done by many performers over the years as a “flying farmer” or a drunken spectator act. The idea is that someone untrained steals a Piper Cub during an airshow, in full view of the audience, and flies a wobbly routine. Franklin’s twist is to scrape both wingtips. Maybe some other act is scraping wingtips, too, but¬†it has escaped notice until now. Take a look at the video¬†titled “Comedy Act Video.” It is at the bottom of the Franklin Web page.
