Who, in your opinion, is the best assistant you've ever seen and why?

Before she started calling herself "Luna," Lisa Shimada was the best assistant that James Dimmare ever had: poised, professional, beautiful, classy, and proficient.

Possibly Pam Thomson (Tomsoni & Company) is amongst the best. She has the most defined, thought out and well acted character imaginable.

I'd Say Teresa from Murray Hatfield and Teresa's magic show in Calgary.!!!!!

I've seen it numerous times and am in awe every time of how well they work together and the way they present themselves.

You're the best, Murray!

My vote is also for Pam (Hayes) Thompson. Stage magic is a piece of cake for an actress. After all, it is theater.

You know that the strangest thing is that her role is the assistant from Hell.

(When I worked military bases, I had too much experience with real assistants from Hell. It is an experience you wish you could forget. After the fire, as soon as the stitches heal, and you get the casts off and the law suits stop ... )

I have a few: Tanya (from Ayala and Tanya), Jinger Lee (Kalin and Jinger), Sarah (Nathan Burton), Teresa, and my assistant is a very hard worker. I think that any assistant male or female deserves as much credit as any of the names that we listed above. I mean come on guys, lets face it, they make us look good.

I vote for Tina Lenert's male assistant in her classic cleaning lady act! He had great sleight of hand skill in his own right. ...and what a romance! Oh wait, nevermind.

As real assistance go, Pamela Hayes Thomson has far and away the best character development of any assisant I have ever seen. She sets the bar for other assistants.

Shimada's wife Diana during the Parasol Act. Luna learned much from them alright.

I think that Jinger is probably the best I have seen in the last 10 years. Before her I always thought Gay Blackstone did a great job

Am I too "Old School"? when I think of "great" assistants, the one that IMMEDIATELY comes to mind is Nani who assisted her husband, Mark Wilson!
