what the world has to say about mr yellow...
"...we didn`t get much time to chat on Saturday night but I would like to thank you most sincerely for your contribution to a wonderful evening. "Mr Blue" was just what the party needed & we have since received numerous compliments about him, not just from our guests but from everyone who was involved in the celebration. Once again, our sincere thanks for helping us make our special evening even more special."
Ray & Sue Birch. September 1999
"Many thanks for supporting the school on 28th November 2002. You made a BIG impact on parents & pupils. I received calls from junior school heads commenting that pupils were very impressed & full of tales about their interaction with you."
Roger Burman - Headteacher Howden School. December 2002
"Mark Wallis, as the "Yellow man" has been known to the Tourism Bureau for several years & has always been VERY popular with visitors to York. Mark was employed by York Tourism Bureau as entertainment during the launch of the new York brand, for which he proved highly successful. We would have no hesitation in using his services again or recommending him to others."
Kay Hyde - PR Manager for York Tourism Bureau
"In short, York locals love Mr Yellow & think he's a hugely important & recognisable part of the city culture - a bit like the Minster, the Jorvik centre or the city walls. Since his debut five years ago on the streets of York, Mr Yellow has caused comedy chaos by interacting with the public in the ultimate street performance; he's been on TV; taught workshops & featured at corporate team building days; & his image has appeared on buses to promote the 1997 Year of Photography. He even made the finishing line of this years London Marathon."
The Journal Magazine - January 2002
"He has tremendous movement, coordination & control of his body; this chap sets the standards I'd like my patients to achieve. For them that's not possible but from a medical point of view his performance is fascinating. When I watch him perform I see not only a talented artist but someone who demonstrates considerable physical skills; the way he uses his body & body-language, those powers of coordination are exceptional."
Dr Piet De Boer - Leading UK Orthopaedic surgeon
"Wallis's ability to startle & captivate onlookers is as much to do with his physical & mental preparations as his vivid Yellow top, trousers & shoes. Fundamental to his ability to remain motionless for several minutes are his Yoga sessions & Tai Chi, a Chinese form of slow movement he practises every day. The combination, he says, has toned his body, given him infinitely greater balance & muscle control, & enhanced his powers of concentration."
The Yorkshire Post - May 1998
