Did anyone else happen to see this guy eating a light bulb on Letterman Monday night?

I saw him. Not bad. I think Dave kind of treated it like a lark. They've had a guy eating a martini glass and another eating a lit cigarette on the last two nights. Maybe I can get on and do my blockhead routine!

I just did the show swallowing and regurgitating cockroaches. I am not a fan of the tone of the show, but the check will clear. By the way, the guy eating the martini glass was Johnny Fox and the cigarette guy was Tyler Fyre from our Coney Island sideshow.

Todd, I just saw you last night! It was great! Really freaked out the audience. However, Dave had to make some comment about Ed Sullivan rolling in his grave. Hmmmm... And I noticed he just calls everyone Magic Johnny. Oh well. By the way, Tyler Fyre's cig eating was awesome! I'm just not that brave.

I missed you! Bigger, I saw everyone else but you. I saw Magic Brian live in Australia when he came for the festival rounds here. He was pretty cool, did a straight jacket and some other magic work I can't quite remember. Does he have a show in NYC?

Brian has performed with the Bindlestiffs here and also has his own show, Barrel of Monkeys. It performs every once in a while. He sometimes works with Tyler Fyre in his Lucky Stiff show at the Pussycat Lounge. When he was filling in out in Coney Island, I billed him as Harry Houdini's Illegitmate Great Grandson. People bought it!
