Sammy Tramp sings "Mack The Knife"

Sammich the Tramp (also known as Sammy Tramp) is a multi-talented, Chaplinesque perfomer. She is Creator/Founder at Sammy Tramp's Traveling Flicker Factory and Artistic Director/Producer at The Beggar's Carnivale.

I first became acquainted with this special performer a few years back when she was performing as Lulu (see blurry snapshot from 2006!) in "Lulu: a black and white silent play," a live stage adaption without dialogue of G.W. Pabst's film of Frank Wedekind's Pandora's Box. It was terrefic. The Louise Brooks Society encourages everyone to check out Sammy Tramp's various webpages, or better yet, check out one of her live performances. She is based in St. Louis, Missouri but travels all around.

Here's the latest from Sammy Tramp. Sammy puts down the kazoo and uses her mouth to sing "Mack The Knife." Originally written by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill for The Three Penny Opera and made famous by Bobby Darin.
