Re: Slippery Rocks

Short answer...no.

I didn't know there was a Slippery Rocks "trick". Zimmerman performed this for me years ago and told me it was in the Ganson book.

It was a minor miracle in his hands.

Re: Rich Marotta & Twila Zone at the Snapple Theater Center in NYC

I took relatives and children to Rich and Twila's show over the weekend and everyone had a blast. Rich's comedy was just perfect for both the adults and kids. There is also a juggler in the show, Will Shaw, who had some moves I'd never seen before.

Highly recommended.
