Bobby Torkova just told me he was on the bill that night. Unfortunately, his bit -the Cone and Ball - isn't included.

Thanks to Michael Ammar for posting it to YouTube! BTW, isn't that Gazzo doing the cups and balls for Vernon at approx 6 min? Vernon says "He's Great!" Wow...

Jackie Flosso was there too. He was either the first or second presenter. Didn't do any magic, but I remember him being really funny. Had some great lines.

Yup, Gazzo. A master, and very nice guy.

I first met him at a NY Magic Symp where his punch work floored me.

I was sure that it was. He is indeed a very nice guy and I really enjoyed my chat with him! http://bit.ly/GazzoMNW

Michael Ammar originally posted a version of this video on YouTube. It left a lot to be desired, quality wise.

Michael sent me the video and I converted it and made it a private video so only those with this link can view it.
Even though it is still dark (because the original tape was dark) this is MUCH more watchable.

Enjoy,
