Have you got any TRUE
funny stories to add here?
Here's two more:
1) I got a phone call about ten years ago saying, "Do you do ALL kinds of functions? If so - would you do a funeral
!" Puzzled, I said, "Err...sure!" Unsure at what stage - if ANY - would be appropriate - I ended up doing the 'After Funeral PARTY'
. I arrived at the house and all the guests were laughing, drinking and dancing. I thought, either they HATED him and were getting their own back, or he said, "When I die - have a ball!" Worse still - the darned body (in upright coffin) was OPEN
in the room!! I wickedly thought about complaining, "There's a guy in the corner who refuses to pick a card!" Odd day!
2. At a magic lecture (in New York circa 1999), this chap picked up one of my books (with my photo on the front), flicked through it, perused it, read parts of it, saw more photos of me inside, flicked through it once more...and finally looked up at me and said, "Is this book any good?"
