Randy Burns
a.k.a. The Mechanical Man
The Nation’s Best Mime – Robot – Human Statue

After 27 years of acting like a Disney automaton, some have called “The Mechanical Man” ‘lifeless like’ and even held a mirror under his nose to see if he’s breathing. Others shake their heads in disbelief or even pull the hair on his outstretched hand for some sign of life. After a performance, one elderly man even drew a comparison between Randy and the “people I put make-up on in the funeral parlor”.
