So, this has been a great week. I've been performing full time again. Working on the Pier 3rd street promenade the last couple of weeks.

If anyone wants to catch some live magic and you're in L.A./Santa Monica and you can catch me, Frank, Brian, Gazzo, Kasper, or Ron!

Hey Shaun(!),
man, you've gone a looooooong way!
Playing 'the pier of peers'(!).
Congradulations. 👍

Wish you wispy weather, curious eyes, and light smiles.

Gallagher,

Long time....

I have to say that Gazzo is one of the nicest guys I've met, the very best.

To get to perform with him, every day, it's kinda surreal but it's a great time to be working on the street as a magician. There are some amazing guys out in L.A. right now!

Shaun, great hearing!
..you really followed your interests.

You had written that 'classic' thread.
about 'starting to play the Streets',
...some years ago.
It was,..is, very detailed and,...methodical.
,..as well as,...honest.
It would be nice reading: 'Five years later'(!).
"How and Where the Show went."(!...!)

What does your act consist of today?
What attitude are you hitting the Streets with today,
compaired to five years ago?
What are your plans?,...in love with the Streets?
How's the family?
Crazy experiences?
'Bad' Shows?

,...i know,
i'm a noisey guy(!).
But believe it ir not,..
EVERYBODY HERE IS! 😊

I'd enjoy reading more of your storys,..thoughts.
Have a really nice day.

Wow, it's going to take some time to answer all these questions. I'll try to get some photos maybe even a bit of video of me. I've got old videos just not anything too recent.


My show is the same but different. If you were to hear someone calling out: "MAGIC SHOW!, MAGIC SHOW!" "LADIES AND GENTLEMEN I AM GOING TO DO A MAGIC SHOW BUT, TO DO A MAGIC SHOW, I NEED AN AUDIENCE, WITHOUT AN AUDIENCE, IT'S JUST ME PLAYING WITH MYSELF, AND NOBODY WANTS TO SEE THAT!"

Then you've found me. I think my bellowing Magic Show over and over is something that I do that I don't see others doing. But usually now, to get a crowd I'll do a silk vanish over and over while saying that opening line. If that fails I'll stand up on a step stool and swallow a balloon. That always gets a crowd stopped. Then I do a sponge ball routine, rope routine, vanish a borrowed/signed bill, do cups and balls with a hat load, reproduce bill from inside a freely selected orange that has been in a bag in front of audience the entire show. The spectator can cut open the orange and remove bill themselves. Also, I'll add that the spectator holds onto their bill until the moment it vanishes. I guess it's my version now.

That's a brief overview. I am working almost 7 days per week right now. I'm thinking of starting an Instagram page or Facebook page or a blog or something dedicated to street performing.

I'm about to start doing a straight jacket escape as well. I guess that's it for now. I'll try to get more info up later.

You are definitely more professional than I am, (eternal n00b, that's me) but let me address a personal nit that has to be picked;

It's a strait-jacket, you're escaping from a canvas restraint. A "straight" jacket is a corduroy blazer that no gay man would be caught dead in.

Nope, Gazzo has moved on for now, who knows when he will be back but I believe he will, eventually. Chris Randall was here for a week recently. I just met Steve Spill the other day. He is working on a new book, I think.
