Meet “The Mechanical Man” at The Big E

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Randy Burns, better known as “The Mechanical Man”, has been a fixture at The Big E.

Burns started his career as part of a mime troupe and now he has become one of the most recognizable acts at New England’s largest fair.

Burns sat down with ABC40’s Dave Madsen and Shannon Hegy to talk about his career, how he got into his craft, and his colorful set of suits.
