Larry Griswold


My wife posted the video link below on her facebook page recently. I had never heard of this guy but his stunts are amazing and to top it off he's wearing a suit.

The Wikipedia article on him states: Laurens (Larry) V. Griswold (September 17, 1905 - August 24, 1996), known as "The Diving Fool", was an American gymnast and entertainer who was involved in the early development of the trampoline.

I had to send that one around. That was back when comedy didn't have to be dirty to be funny. I loved it!

Spread the word, even though it was 60 years ago.
