Help me please ID this guy!

Addresses new and interesting links to other sites (not listed on the Genii website) that merit attention.

Maybe he was before me time?? I'm thinking Kaps, but the first person to ID this guy is a WINNER!

Sorry about the quality, 8mm shot off the TV.

Not sure: this is the act he did at the Palladium in (or about) 1966, with the rabbitt production at the end. I've seen other versions of that act, but never with the rabbitt (Silvan would later end the act with the cage vanish).
