Manualist Jim Rotondo, the "Italian Virtuoso", was born in Philadelphia, Pa but grew up in Southern California from 1970 thru 1990. It was there that his extremely rare gift of "Manualism" was born, the unique ability to play songs by simply squeezing the palms of his hands together. Jim can also serenade by controlling the airflow from the nozzle of a Bicycle Tire Pump (K-Mart, $9.99, Black). In addition to his many appearances in comedy clubs, churches, prisons and retirement homes, Jim has appeared on many TV shows including "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", "Good Day Philadelphia" and was recently a finalist on "America's Funniest Videos". Currently the only human on the planet playing hands AND tire pump, his 30 minute "Feature Act" can be seen regularly at the many Comedy Cabaret locations in the Delaware Valley. What? Don't live in the Philly area? My Online Videos will have to do!
