Throwback Thursday: Miming in the Village

 

Mime at State Street Farmers Market in Carlsbad Village

 

Our State Street Farmers Market is held every Wednesday in Carlsbad Village from 3 to 7 pm (until 6 in the darker winter months). We go fairly regularly for fresh produce but sometimes for prepared foods for dinner when we are feeling lazy.

 

They always have some sort of entertainment, and this mime was there about 3 years ago. Every now and then (I suspect when someone left a tip or stopped in front of him with a request) he would burst into a short interlude on his guitar, then go back to his motionless state. He was pretty good!!

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS,

What a great shot of this mime. It would pay to give him a tip just to hear the guitar play.

He was really good Sheri Sperry - MCNE® 

I stopped by and dropped a few bucks in the pot and he played for about 30 seconds. Heard him a few other times and it was really well done. But how do you stand so still?

Hello Jeff - I think it is fairly common to see entertainers performing their craft. Why not? It's California,  anything is possible.

Great photo, Jeff. I used to see mimes in the NYC subway from time to time... always wondered if they made any real money.

Jeff,

Love the photo, as he does look like a statue.  I remember seeing Marcel Marceau live on stage...Happy Friday!  A

Farmers Markets have become quite the venue and I think they are a really good place for locals to share their services, whether it be produce or something else.

The 3rd Street Promenade in LA is a great place to see lots of street performers.

Hey James Dray 

Maybe he has been there again, but despite all the times we've gone I've never seen him again. Too bad - missed opportunity!

Good morning Jeff Dowler, CRS -  that is so cool.  That takes discipline to stay still.

Hi Nina Hollander 

We used to see them in Boston, too...on the streets and in the subway on occasion. And we saw several when we were traveling in Italy in Florence. Tough way to earn a living.

I never saw Marceau live while he was living, but certainly saw him perform on TV.

Hi Brian England 

They are becoming more like outdoor malls these days - it's not just fresh produce anymore but prepared foods, and other products, too.

I cannot imagine doing this Grant Schneider . Plus having all these people stop by and stare at you, or ask questions.

Jeff I bet several people thought he was just a statute and got a little freaked out when he started moving.

He's certainly dressed to be cooler than if he were in black in the hot sun! Great shot, Jeff!
