'MIME' category was created by Gigmasters at Chris Yerlig's request. Probably the most experienced, and one of the few mime specialists, on Gigmasters for the whole nation.

THE SIX STYLES

1) The SILENT TREATMENT. Strolling mime entertainment in traditional white-face make-up and black and white attire. Silent interaction with guests. Comical imitations of passers-by. Ideal for large gatherings and celebrations. Ask about special costuming and additional performers.

2) REAL or ROBOT? Standing completely still for minutes on end, or moving like a mechanical man, people will ask "Is he real?" Some will be surprised to find what they thought was a robot is really alive! A memorable addition to any event with a circulating audience.

3) HUMAN STATUE. Costume and make-up designed to resemble stone or metal. Many character possibilities. Customized to your event.

4) 19th CENTURY PIERROT. All-white historic mime inspired by the movie 'The Children of Paradise.'

5) CHARLIE CHAPLIN. Star of the silent screen.

6) MIME & MAGIC COMEDY SHOW. Hilarious all ages show.

Everyone that attended our automotive event enjoyed Chris Yerling rather he was the “white-faced mime” or the “mechanical man.” His presence during our VIP banquet was the icing on the cake. His ability to interact with any age group is such an asset, as well as his ability to perform flawlessly! I cannot wait to contract Chris for our event in 2012. Carol Dolan

Chris was wonderful--extremely professional and punctual (early!). He was a pleasure to be around, with and without the mime makeup on. I heard nothing but rave reviews about his talent and how fun he was. He was a big hit with the children at our party. I would highly recommend him for any event.
