He Is an expert ventriloquist He Is an expert panto-mimist. Ht la an accomplished musician. And he can yodel like no one else this side of the Swiss Alps. All these talents Yonal puts to good use on the Golden Casino's stage, as he keeps audiences in a hilarious uproar night after night during his act. A couple of his funnier bits are a portrayal of a young father trying to put the baby to sleep, and a sidesplitting conversation with his own stomach. His yodel-ing act, during which he returns his echoes from the surrounding mountains, really has to be seen to be believed. In Europe, where Yonal is an all-time favorite, he has played at the most famous clubs, listing such names as the Moulin Rouge, the Folies Bergere, the Alhambra and London's Cafe de Paris among his credits. He also has television credits in England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Egypt.
