I seem to recall seeing this on one of the many TV specials. Does anyone recall which one?
I was also fortunate enough to see it live in the late 70's when he worked a theater in the Village.

Any help would be appreciated.

I saw him when he was on tour with The World Festival of Magic and Occult in the 1970's. The saw literally stopped the show. ;)

(HBO/Showtime?) "Chamber of Horrors" - hosted by Vincent Price - in the early-mid 1980's.

It's available on DVD. (also clips are on "Youtube")

I saw Richiardi in the early 1970's at Madison Square Garden's 'Felt Forum': "The World Festival of Magic & Occult" show. Also saw him later at a dinner theather in Westchester county, N.Y.

It's a performance I'll never forget.

Mike Caveney worked with Richiardi in the early 80's.

My question is: Where is Richiardi's actual BUZZ-SAW these days? Who has it?
