Are there any good female theatrical pickpockets working today?

When I was about 18, I had a front row, aisle seat, for Harry Blackstone Sr.'s 1001 Wonders show in the old Davidson Theater in Milwaukee. I was a member of "the committee", and, stood next to Mr. B. He "taught" me his watch steal! (hee hee)

I had learned the "hot chairs" bit from Clem Magrum, and was doing it. The watch steal got added to the routine!

Ha! I must be getting old! No! I AM OLD!

I forgot to say that, I haven't heard of any ladies doing pick pocketing.

When I was young I went to a show where people dressed up and acted like celebrity's that had passed away. Such as one guy that looked like elvis and sang and danced. Another was Merlin Monroe. She brought a guy up and stage and did a bit where she sat on his lap and kinda acted as if she was coming on to him. By the end of the show she had is watch and wallet

Diana Zimmerman did a nice pickpocket act back in the early 80's.

AnhDao is Apollo Robbins' wife. She is an excellent pickpocket. I don't know if she does a stage act.

My wife steals money out of my pockets all the time. :)
