Wayne Betts Jr.’s impersonation of a guy who’s “oralistic”

Heh, funny. I met him during Jr. NAD convention at Rochester, NY in 1995. He was a skinny guy with braces back then. Now, he’s a director who aspires to be the next Steven Spielberg. His movie production is at mosdeux.com.

  1. Very hilarous. My roommate at the time grew up oral, and he was very offended that I laughed really hard. I pointed out to him that Wayne did other two clips – making fun of being too “Deaf” and being timid and naive signer. So, anyone, chill out if you ever get offended. :-D

  2. My gosh.. this could be the NEW DEAF Honey Comb commercial! Now we know that people with BIG mouths eat Honey Combs cereal for Breakfast! WOW! Great!

    Pam, do you have that link about other clips? I haven’t seen it.

    Steve – ha yeah, he’d be a perfect candidate for that commerical. :-)

    ..huh, his mouth movement is really bad.
    He get an “F” on his report card!

  5. Awesome job.. Loved every minute of it.
    Oralism may work for some but not for all deaf people.

    Know Wayne since 1993. I never know he could speech (mouthing English)that well! What an impression!
    Proud of his accomplishment (acting and videotaping business). He is one of our promising leaders in the Deaf community.

  8. Heh yeah, if you lip-read carefully, he was supposed to pronounce “appreciate” but he mouthed “pleasure”. Still funny, nevertheless.

    Keith, yeah he is indeed one of the promising Deaf leaders and he could be our “Steven Spielberg” for the Deaf, showing what Deaf people can do.
