Believe me, I know what you must be thinking: Mimes? She's telling me about mimes from the '70's? Yawn.
Ah, but these aren't just any mimes. They are Shields and Yarnell and they were EVERYWHERE in the late '70's. They appeared on the The Red Skelton Show, The Muppet Show, and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. They performed for two American Presidents and Queen Elizabeth II, as well as on a tour of China with comedian Bob Hope. And Shields and Yarnell--a mime couple--had their own primetime show on network TV! I know! It was a crazy time in America!
