Not So Impressive Entertainer #17

Captain Constellation

“Clarry was a forklift operator by day at the wharfside fishmarkets and by night he was a closet trekker and amateur astronomer. His love of astrophysics and yearning for space travel led him to a brief but none-the-less spectacular stint as “Captain Constellation”.

He would don his “space suit”, assume his “mantle of the cosmos” and, upon request, impersonate named constellations. His “Cannis Major” was renowned for it’s accuracy, his “Orions Belt” a triumph and his finale – “Crux” whilst singing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”, brought rapturous reactions from the appreciative audience.

His brief but stellar career ended on workers compensation when he slipped a disk during a lunchbreak rehearsal of a particularly ambitions “Big-Bang” impression for a forthcoming “All Star” performance.” – Biography by Wonko

    lol, this still amuses me, mostly for the cacophony of apalling puns littering the bio

  • wonko

    arrgh, the first 2 sentences are clumsy, how about:

    “Clarry was a forklift operator by day at the wharfside fishmarkets and by night he was a closet trekker and amateur astronomer.”

    a little less cluttered I think

  • wonko

    aarrgh, last para should read:

    “His brief but stellar career ended on workers compensation when he … etc”

    “stellar” I thought was a nice touch, and I am not sure I have done a biography with so many “quotes”.

    Clarry was a forklift operator by day at the wharfside fishmarkets. He was a closet trekker and star-gazer by night. His love of astrophysics and yearning for space travel led him to a brief but none-the-less spectacular stint as “Captain Constellation”.

    He would don his “space suit”, assume his “mantle of the cosmos” and, upon request, impersonate named constellations. His “Cannis Major” was renowned for it’s accuracy, his “Orions Belt” a triumph and his finale – “Crux” whilst singing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”, brought rapturous reactions from the appreciative audience.

    He ended his short but illustrious performers career on workers compensation when he slipped a disk during a lunchbreak rehearsal of a particularly ambitions “Big-Bang” impression for a forthcoming “All Star” performance.
