Tim,

I just wanted to thank you for the laugh. When I saw this, I just smiled.

Do you ever perform this for laymen?

Strangely enough.... no.

Personally, I don't think it came across on the DVD nearly as well as it did live, but from the feedback I've heard, people really seem to be getting a kick out of it!

I did it first at the Milwaukee SAM, just a gag to "set the mood" for 'Runaround Sue' and theme my routine for the Close-Up Show. It went over waaaaay better than I expected!

Eventually I did it a FFFF and who should be in the audience but ROCCO!

Thank goodness he had a sense of humour! He came back afterwards and said he loved it (I'm sure he sold a few extra D'Lites that day too Smile )

The last time I did it was when we were guests at the New Zealand Magic Convention, along with Michael Ammar. Again, Michael's got a great sense of humour too and he didn't make any serious attempt to kill me at all.


Aussies have a tradition of doing parodies, but it really is considered a sign of respect. For awhile we used to close every National Australian Convention with a parody show where various performers would come out and send up the acts of others or have make references to things that happened during the convention. Lots of fun!

I picture a world of love and peace, a world without war where people live together in harmony.
I also picture us attacking that world 'cause they just wouldn't expect it

It's on Runaround Sue.

And yes - it's MUCH better live!
