If we were to talk about mime, this guy really takes it to the next level. David Armand, an English comedian, actor and writer, appeared this year on the BBC2 show ‘Fast and Loose’, doing interpretive dance routines to different songs.

You might have already heard of him – he is quite popular for his mime style interpretive dance of Natalie Imbruglia’s ‘Torn’ and he even got to perform with her on stage, back in 2006. His performance is often labeled as ‘Karaoke for the Deaf’ and he used to call himself Johann Lippowitz.

Anyway, in ‘Fast and Loose’, a television series where guests take part in improvised sketches in which each comedian inhabits a certain character or movie genre, Armand appeared in a few episodes from January to March 2011. Two cast members were wearing headphones so they couldn’t hear the song, and then had to guess the title based on Armand’s moves.

Watch the videos below and prepare to be amused. Personally, at one point I couldn’t stop laughing.
