Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Moschitta Jr. (born August 6, 1954 in New York City) is a spokesperson and performer best known for his rapid speech delivery. He appeared in over 100 commercials as "The Micro Machines Man" as well as an award winning 1981 ad for FedEx. Before the category was eliminated, Moschitta was credited in The Guinness Book of World Records as the World's Fastest Talker, with the ability to articulate 586 words per minute. Raised with five sisters, he often remarked that he needed to talk fast "just to get a word in edgewise." At an early age, he acted in local community theater and school productions. In the 1970s, Moschitta attended Nassau Community College, where he studied theater and appeared in over 14 shows in two years, including a production of Room Service alongside Nassau alum Billy Crystal. Moschitta was also a contestant on the game show The $25,000 Pyramid, in which he was paired with comedian Joan Rivers and won $10,500. He returned to the show on a number of occasions as a celebrity guest.show more
