Paul Remos hoists his son up in the air using only his right arm to feed a giraffe

Now, that’s one amazing father-and-son team-up!

This photo of Paul Remos and his six and seven year old sons was said to have been taken in the ‘50s at the London Zoo. Paul was described as a “circus strongman”; it’s no wonder, then, that he’s able to do such stunt!

Paul and his sons reportedly used to perform together on the “Wonderful World” revue. In addition, Paul had also performed with “two midgets” as a “theatrical vaudeville act” called Paul Remos and His Toy Boys.

We weren’t able to find any video clip of the performances by the Remoses online, but here’s one of Paul Remos and His Toy Boys performing in the TV series “Colgate Comedy Hour” hosted by Abbott and Costello!
