It must have been around 1984 when I was in elementary school...we had some sort of assembly and this guy did his show. It was magic mixed in with social lessons or something of that nature. It was called Bob Gustafson's Fun Factory Show. I just found one of the tickets in my stuff from way back then and it revived the memory. Anyone ever hear of it?

Bob did (does) a hell of an act. Besides school shows, he had a full evening show as well. I may be wrong here, but I believe he had a show called magic by candlelight....

That is Richard Gustafson (Dick & Joanne), former SAM national president, dean of MAES, who doe the magic by candlelight act. I just saw it again last Labor day at MAES and good as ever.

Good news. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the creation of the Candlelight by Magic act, Dick and Joan Gustafson have graciously agreed to perform the act at the Society of American Magicians Assembly 4 Annual Banquet which will be held on the third Thursday of June 2007 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The act was featured on The Ed Sullivan Show as well as at The Magic Castle and has taken Dick and Joan around the world. If you would like to see this act live, you may contact me for ticket information.

There's is one of the classic, classy acts... worked with them a number of times and they always scored well.
