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.
