The Man Of 1000 Sounds

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A self-proclaimed “vocal acrobat” in New York is issuing a challenge to America: “I dare you to come up with a sound that I can’t imitate.”

The performer – who goes by the name “Zero Boy” – has already fulfilled audio dares including imitating the sound of a feather falling into an empty bucket and depicting a robotic monkey in a Packard with a screaming banshee who has to drive to a cuckoo clock factory and run around in wooden clogs.

However, his favorite vocal performance is acting out all the sounds of a one night stand – including ambient noises in the bar where the couple meets, their clothes unzipping and the dirty deed.

Zero Boy says some audiences freak out at his sex routine because, although he’s not doing anything naughty on stage, it sure sounds like he is.

Now, Zero Boy’s latest project is Zero Boy News, a feature on his website,, where he spoofs current events using his repertoire of bizarre sound effects.

He hopes it leads to his own weekly radio show where listeners e-mail him scenarios to act out on the air.
