I remember a European magician (Denmark or Sweden) that produced a whole bunch of magic tables during his act....if memory serves me right his name was Samson or Sampson. I would love to see footage of this act for a project I am working on note: not to copy but get a pointer).
I believe the magician in question is not around anymore....?
Does anyone have any info on this?

I saw Samson several times, the first at a Tannen Jubilee at Brown's hotel who knows how many decades ago. It was a very funny act. He weighed 600 pounds when he walked out and only 200 when the act was finished.

I tried several times to book him for the IBM conventions, but July was his busiest time in Denmark and could never come over.
