There is a book (hard cover) written by Dorny. He was an artist too... having done a lot of artwork on silks for magicians. The Bang Gun "BANG" silk on the D.Yip Louie bang guns was drawn by Dorny.
A mummy case in the Museum of Magic in Marshall, MI, was decorated by Dorny.
One night, I was on a layover in Chicago, Jay Marshall said, "Let's go to Dorny's Roast."
So I go. The various celebrities that know him all did bits, etc.
The MC noted that I was in the room. He said, "We have an out of town visitor, Pete Biro... Pete, would you like to say a few things about Dorny?"
I said, "I'd like to, but who the hell is Dorny?"
Later, Dorny told me he thought that was the funniest line of the night.
