Dr. Norman Gary: Clarinetist, Bee Wrangler

As if the clarinet wasn't difficult enough already...

A retired professor of entomology at the University of California (Davis Campus), Dr. Norman Gary is also a professional "bee wrangler" who has appeared with his bees on television, including The Tonight Show, Scrubs, The Ghost Whisperer, and various commercials. He also holds a Guinness World Record for holding 109 bees inside his closed mouth for ten seconds! Amazingly, he can still play the clarinet, and plays regularly as a jazz and Dixieland clarinetist in the Sacramento area. Check out his personal website here.
