Who invited the first pantomime?
The first person to pantomime was Uourg. His mate, Jueuf, looked at him and grunted. Uourg did not understand what she meant by the grunt, so he shurgged his shoulders. Jueuf in turn did not understand his shoulder shrug, but it still officially qualifies as the first official pantomime by definition. All of this took place in central Europe in what is now northern Italy during the 208 century BC. There is no video evidence of the first pantomime due to the lack of technology during that era. There is, however, audio evidence of both the grunt and the shoulder shrug, but that energy has mostly disapated in atmospheric heat.
