chaplinfortheages:

Reblogging  A post I did a couple of years ago, the history behind Charlie Chaplin.

chaplinfortheages:

The true heart and core of Charlie Chaplin was - a clown - his gift of pantomime set him apart.

Chaplin the clown was also descendant of:

Joseph Grimaldi (pictured in the top right hand side)

Grimaldi was one of the greatest English pantomimes. He first appeared in England in 1805. His clown, called ‘Joey’, specialized in the classic physical tricks, tumbling, pratfalls, and slapstick.

He was known for his expressive face and body, and unique sense of comic timing. He performed in full-length pantomimes and developed the pantomime character of Clown. Grimaldi was famous and influential in his time. (sound familiar?:)

Another great influence on him at a very young age:

The impact upon him of working alongside the great but now forgotten Spanish clown/mime artist Marceline when he was 10 years old.

Also the history of his style:

Commedia dell’Arte

Italian form of popular comedy characterized by improvisation and a collection of stock characters, flourishing 1550-1780.

Perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it.
