Manny Pacquiao Belts it out on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

Posted by Levine Communications Office on November 4, 2010

On Monday November 1, 2010 LCO Client and World Championship boxer, Manny Pacquiao was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Manny Pacquiao is an extremely talented athlete and known as the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world. That’s not all though…he’s also an actor, singer, and a congressman in the Philippines. So, on Monday night he did more than just talk with Jimmy Kimmel, he entertained the audience with his voice. This time comedian/actor Will Ferrell joined him for a duet of John Lennon’s classic, “Imagine”.

“Manny is one of the best boxers competing today. Not only is he a very talented athlete, but he is also a very caring and humble person. He is a man of unflinching integrity and someone I am proud to call a good friend.” —All-Star NBA Champion and friend Ron Artest

Support the Heston Stamp Petition

Posted by Levine Communications Office on October 7, 2010

Charlton Heston, an icon of epic proportions, Academy Award-winning actor, philanthropist and political activist, could soon be featured on a US postage stamp. Starting today, when Heston would have turned 87 years old, longtime publicist Michael Levine, founder of LCO – Levine Communications Office, is organizing a national petition effort to commemorate the life of one of Hollywood’s greatest leading men.

The petition will raise awareness nationally to convince the Citizen Stamp Advisory Commission that Heston deserves to be placed on a postage stamp. Fans throughout the country are invited to send an email, letter and/or sign the petition in support of the effort to successfully implement this historic Hollywood figure into the US postal stamp collection.

“If Hollywood had a Mount Rushmore, his face would be on it,” said Levine, “A postage stamp would be the next best thing.”

Heston is one of the most dedicated and talented actors of our time.  His films are highly regarded as some of the most successful movies in motion picture history. Heston earned two Academy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, three Emmy Award nominations and the Kennedy Center Honors: Lifetime Achievement Award. As a respected actor he was a six-time president of the Screen Actors Guild and president of the American Film Institute. In 2003, Heston received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Bush. In honor of Heston’s wide-range success that exceeded beyond his Hollywood career, Heston is a more-than-deserving figure to be featured on a US postage stamp.  To sign the petition and to learn more about the Charlton Heston stamp petition visit (www.CharltonHestonStamp.com).

The Man Behind The Nose

Posted by Levine Communications Office on August 10, 2010

Bozo the Clown is arguably the most famous clown in the world. The man behind the nose and outrageous makeup goes by the name of Larry Harmon. As famous as Larry BOZO Harmon may be for entertaining children, his silly antics, and comical appearance, you may not know as much as you think about this iconic character. For example, did you know that Bozo the Clown ran for president and that two assassination attempts were made on his life?

In his new book, written with Thomas Scott McKenzie, “The Man Behind the Nose: Assassins, Astronauts, Cannibals, and Other Stupendous Tales”, Larry Harmon shares things he would have never dared to tell when you were younger and allows us to fully understand the world of Bozo the Clown. “The Man Behind the Nose: Assassins, Astronauts, Cannibals, and Other Stupendous Tales” is published by the Igniter Literary Group and includes an introduction by Neil Strauss and Anthony Bozza.

“Sure, you know the giant shoes, the red bulbous nose, the big ruby smile, and the twin shocks of red yak-hair bursting from the sides of his head. And obviously you know the many clowns inspired by him, from Ronald McDonald to Krusty the Clown. So perhaps it’s time you learned about Bozo, and the man behind the nose. Because the wild, inspirational stories in this book are all true. As real as the nose on your face.”

I was headed for a white lab coat and stethoscope until a jazz singer in makeup pointed me in a direction that would lead to a red nose and wig.

I’m surrounded by laughter. If you’re with me you’ll notice giggling, chuckling, laughing, snickering, and cackling. Those sounds of joy are like music to me, symphonies of happiness.

Few things on this planet burn as quickly as heavily processed yak hair. And when that hair extends about nine inches from either side of your head and is curved upright, thus forming a bowl, that any stray spark or floating cinder can ignite it. One minute I’m joking around, the next I’m a human tiki torch.

Sometimes in like, certain doors open. And if you walk through them, things will never be the same.

For such a graceful man, famous for being so light on his feet, he sure made a lot of noise as he walked across the empty sound stage. Or maybe that was just my heart pounding.

I knew I wanted to leave my mark on this earth. Ultimately I decided that was best achieved by wearing size 83 triple-A red shoes. because people would never be able to forget the marks of those footprints. But it took a while to reach that conclusion.
