I have been intermittently watching Ricky Jay's performance on video--taped of course in 1996 off HBO.

Now that my tape is literally threadbare, it causes me to wonder whether there are any protracted plans to resurrect the show?

I doubt anyone in this forum see Ricky on a regular basis, or has any intimate knowledge of his future plans. But if anyone has an idea of the if, when, and should those eventuate--the where--Ricky Jay and His 52 Assitants can be seen in person, please let me know.

hmm. I haven't talked to Ricky in a while. He's quite a busy man. Especially since he finished his current stint on Broadway last fall. I am hoping he comes to Steppenwolf and that I see him in May at the collectors if its in Chicago. He's a great guy.

Hi Ron,

There's somebody who sells "52 Assistants" tape on eBay.

I think he charges $49.00 for it.

I haven't bought one because I don't know if he copied off TV and, is selling it without permission for big money.

Where we live we are limited to television programs we can get, and I've never had the pleasure of seeing Ricky work.

I've contacted HBO several times, to ask if I could buy a taped copy of the show, but they have never even sent me a reply to my request.

Good Luck & Good Magic! ...... Manyfingers
