This article was in the Washington Post in January.

After I posted this, I googled the chat mentioned at the end of the article which is here. It's a bit long, but if you liked the article, you might like the discussion.

Someone tries to emulate The Great Zucchini and fails Here.

Wow, that was funny. And it reminded of a horrible birthday party gig I had as a kid. The parents tipped me I had such a hard time with the young kids :) .

Odd coincidence: I saw the Great Zuccini today at a kid's party in my neighborhood. He's a favorite of kids in the area (my daughter included).

The guy looks like a truck driver or homeless man in dirty T-shift, jeans, and baseball cap. He's an absolutely abysmal magician.

However, and frankly more importantly for his audience, kids LOVE him. He gets them going and manipulates them really well with lots of shouting and call backs and lots and lots of laughs. He's very popular--I think my daughter has already seen him at three or four parties in the area.
