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.
