God bless Michael Palin & Colin Firth. The Michael Palin Centre for Stammering Children is a great source to help stam mering kids and promote reserach. Another great source is the website of the Stuttering Foundation ( because it provides many free resources. The site also has a list of "Famous People Who Stutter" which includes people who stutter or have stuttered in the past. Some of the names are Bruce Willis, James Earl Jones, Emily Blunt, Marilyn Monroe, Peggy Lipton, Tom Sizemore, Jimmy Stewart, Rowan Atkinson and many more. Interesting!
