Topic: A place to see the greats perform
Message: Posted by: Rik Chew (Aug 16, 2006 02:27PM)
I would love to see some of the great, unfortuantely late performers of the past perform their material. I know there may be things like the 'Slydini... as I recall' DVD, but is there anywhere online where performances can be seen. To much I think we see videos of people not performing for people, this is something I, and I think others wouldl ike to see more of, especially the greats like Ramsay, Vernon, Slydini, etc.
Is there perhaps an online resource of this, and if not, I think it'd be a great idea!

??? I really don't understand this post...Do you want to see performances for animals? How would you gauge their reactions?

Most vids we see are people performing for the camera with no audience. Or, we see headless crotch videos. I too would like to see full length magicians performing for real life audiences.
