Joseph "Le Pétomane" Pujol
Birth: Jun. 1, 1857
Death: 1945

Renowned Vaudeville Performer. One of the legends of Paris' Moulin Rouge, Joseph Pujol was one of the most unique entertainers of all time. Popularly known as "Le Petomane," Pujol's act consisted of disciplined, odorless flatulence, a talent learned during his military service. The effects he produced included the various flattus produced by a bride over the course of her marriage, an imitation of the San Francisco earthquake, and the extinguishing of a candle from three feet away. He would conclude his performances by playing "La Marseillaise" through a specially-attached ocarina. At his peak, Pujol was the highest-paid performer in Paris, earning more money than Sarah Bernhardt. Pujol retired from performing after the outbreak of World War I, becoming a baker in Toulon. (bio by: Stuthehistoryguy)
