The links take you to an interview of Jimmy Grippo and slide show. There are two parts to the interview. The third link is a short video never aired or seen with Jimmy Grippo performing table side.

Pete
Glad you liked it.

I am really studying Jimmy"s history. A magician said he bought a book about the ?stories of magic and that it said how Jimmy Grippo got his job at Caesars Palace. The story went that he did a trick for this person and the person was so impressed that Jimmy got the job.

That is so far from the real story I have awaken. haha.

About "The langage of the eyes": Very good plot and also a good cover for the break control!

Geno -- what a great Christmas present! It's a shame that there's not more video of Geno available so those who don't know him could better appreciate this great magician.

Geno, is the rumor true that you're working on a Grippo book? When do you expect it available?

Many thanks,
Roland

Hi Roland
I am hoping to complete a book about Jimmy Grippo with the help of Jon Racherbaumer. Maybe you could give him a nudge.
