THE GROSSEST SHOW­MAN

Egyp­tian-born vaude­ville star Hadji Ali demon­strates why his stage names in­clude The Hu­man Aquarium and The Great Re­gur­gi­ta­tor, as he re­leases an un­can­nily large spout of wa­ter from his stom­ach. Other tricks in his reper­toire in­cluded swal­low­ing 30 hazel­nuts and one al­mond, and re­gur­gi­tat­ing them one by one, pro­duc­ing the al­mond on re­quest. He could per­form a sim­i­lar feat with coloured hand­ker­chiefs.
