Monsieur P.T. Issimo
Issimo was found as a baby in a basket on
a doorstep in the back woods of Romania
and was raised by a traveling circus who
stole him from that same doorstep and
raised him as their own.
A well known competitor and contemporary
of P.T Barnum, Issimo's famous puppet side
shows toured the whole western hemisphere
for over 100 years before his enterprise
was closed down due to illegal and
falsified puppet immigration papers.
He has since gone into a semi reclusion,
and acts only as a secret impressario for
a small company called Les Sages Fous from
back woods Québec.
