If you asked me who my favorite performer is — of any industry and from any point in history — I would immediately say Jackie Chan.
1. He’s classically trained (look it up).
2. He’s internationally known.
3. He’s a bonafide, chart-topping pop singer (look it up).
4. He’s a film director.
5. He has his own stunt team. (Do you? Didn’t think so.)
6. Up until very recently, he did his own stunts.
7. Oh. And he is an actor who has starred in 123 films (and counting).
I can’t think of any other performer in the world who can say they’ve accomplished all these things.
Happy birthday, Jackie Chan. The world of arts and entertainment are better off because of your involvement.
