Having been singled out twice by now by a guy that likes wearing the garments of the fairer sex, I feel rather apprehensive about joining in. ;0)

That said, Helen, sir, I would just like to set the record straight about one thing, okay? I do NOT have a powerhouse physique. That honor belongs to my little sister.

Thanks for listening.

I do apologise, no offence intended.. I was basing my thoughts on the photo on the front of your website, which does display an impressive muscular build.

Hi,

I got you all beat, 6'4 and 250 pounds. By my wedding day, I should still remain the same height, but be around 225 or so. If I did stage work, I probably would feel better being a little lighter, but probably wouldn't stop me if it was for the right cause. Smile

No need to apologize. The little smilie thingie should have made it clear there was no hard feelings involved.

Kondini,
Thanks for saying I looked the part,but what's the,,,,,why?...For?

I stand 5 feet 6 1/2 inches tall,and from 1973 to 1988,my weight was
between 145 to 148 pounds! I had to work at it to stay in that range!
Looking the part is only a small part of the picture!
You could look like Superman,but if you can't deliver a top notch
performance to back the look..... you go no where! OK,male model....lol
I truley believe if you give a great performance,with style,and command of
your show,..... That's what's IMPORTANT,not size or shape of the performer!!
Just my opinion!

I will admit that I am 5'4". Depending on what type of heel on the shoes I wear, my height can vary up to 5'8". Everyone is crazy if they think I will divulge my weight!

The only stupid question is the one not asked.

Hi Steve, my observations come mainly from audience comments (You know, after the gig and passer by whispers) And like me there seems to be rightly or wrongly a pre concieved image / look associated with being an ea. You are right that at the end of the day you have to deliver the goods but image is what everyone is greeted with when you first go out front, you have this look,air,presence about yourself which I feel goes towards your makeup as an ea and Im pretty sure that this has come about through you doing the work rather than looking to biuld the look. Im not too good at putting this to paper but I know what I meen !!!

Put another way,,,,put an ea in a Police Line up with people from all walks of life and I bet I could point the ea out !!

That sounds like a fun ideal. or put the people from the line up into restraints and see who gets out first.

I'm a beginnner (in escapology that is), so I'm still thinking about looks as far as an escape artist. I'm currently 13 years of age. Last time I checked my height, I was 5' 6" (in mid November) and 120 lbs. This any good?

If it is to be, it is up to me.

Kondini,

Thanks for the compliment,and your absolutely right about first impressions!

My first Manager said,you look the part kid,now dress the part!
Your first impression when you walk on stage,can make or break you,so be
Flashy,then knock them out with your talent!
Some of the best advice I ever got, and I put it to good use!!
Thanks for giving me the chance to make a point........

Flash, with out something to back it up,is like flashpaper..POOF..Gone!!!

No Snickering and laugh from any of you!

I am 5'9" and weigh in at a measly 58Kg. About 128 Pounds.
I wish I could put on weight but cannot, I have a really weird metabolism.
