Marcel Marceau

Well, to make a long story short, Marcel Marceau was Jewish!

Since Marcel Marceau's mother was Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also Jewish. His father was Jewish too.

Marcel Marceau (who's full birth name was Marcel Mangel) was born on 22 March 1923 in Strasbourg, France.

He was an internationally acclaimed French actor and mime most famous for his stage persona as "Bip the Clown."
