image for MSNBC Hires Mime Favorite & Longtime Radio Talk Show Host
"So why does Russia agree with us on that point, you ask?"

Veteran radio mime Henri Gasteau will have his own hour long program on MSNBC, starting 2AM Tuesday.

Gasteau has spent 35 years in talk radio where you only heard the music, commercials and answers to the questions Gasteau gestured to his guest who guessed at his question. He has also had a syndicated show that aired from 3AM to 3:15 AM on every other Wednesday except in February when he did the fundraiser for PBS.

MSNBC announced Thursday that he'll replace a politically oriented show currently anchored by juggler, Sammy "Whoopsa Daisy" Seedless.

He's another liberal voice for an MSNBC evening audience ususally holding his hands far in front of his stomach while miming Rush Limbaugh and circling his right ear while miming former president, George W. Bush. The show compliments perfectly an audience that's already used to a leftward tilt with Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. MSNBC calls him an "avid non-vocal voice for the middle class."

Gasteau will work with Tamron Hall as a breaking news anchor by constantly looking astonished.
