I watched it....I laughed...but I'm not sure which of the two choices would apply. Maybe it's just "schtick"....I doubt he would do many kid shows...

I really like the line about how, since magicians are always trying to make things float, when he gets to outer space he's going to attempt to make things not float.

And forgive my impertinent curiosity, but how the heck did you find this guy, Dustin?

I'm almost ready to spring for $20 for the t-shirt.

I said "almost."

I was leaning toward the coffee mugs myself.

Actually, I've long been a huge Bowie fan, and the references, beginning with the name "Wizardo Stardust," are really obvious here.

I'm thinking that the tune "Life on Mars?" would provide an excellent background to his program of not-floating stuff.

Impertinence forgiven: I got his URL through an old friend who must have known that I needed a good laugh! In fact, I'm laughing right now just thinking about the video clip!

I've never seen him better.

The music was great.

I liked his total command.

It's a God awful small affair indeed.

The video shows no small talent for comedy and a good deal of underatanding about what makes and act work. Would that act work at FISM?

It's cute, in a demented way.

But does anybody remember Judy Carter's act from the mid-1970s? Some of these same ideas, but tied together in a half-hour set that held together brilliantly. (I don't know that anyone had ever levitated a celery stalk before Judy.)

But Wizardo has Judy beat in the coiffure department, I must say.

Two thumbs way up. One of the best independent films I've seen since Sundance.

Of course. :D

The sawing a man in half was a bit much though. I recall her getting someone to hold a roll of TP for a trick too. Was a while ago.
