Re: Performing the Multiplying Bottles.

Look up Denny Haney's version on you tube. Or Nick Lewin's. They are the closest to Ken Brooke's. It looks like you have the Indian set of two nests of four. If you can afford it you should try to get three nests of three.

Re: Mullica Auction

When Kaps died, he willed Tom one of his two smoking thumb gimmicks, and the second one to me. Sorry to see Tom has to sell it, but perhaps he's buried with medical bills.

I believe the business aspects mentioned by undercut are the duties of the hired managing staff.

However, a good business background for the AMA President should be required.

Re: Tabby Crabb Sings one of his hits

Thanks for clearing it up. I probably mis-understood him, thinking he wrote it. I guess what he was upset about was that he recorded it first and it didn't go big, then Cash recorded it later and it went big.

Re: Film of Arnold DeBiere doing the Egg Bag!

The evolution of the bag as above has made it one of the great classics any performer should be proud to do. I was lucky to learn it from Ken Brooke with added help from Persi Diaconis, who was in on the handling worked out by Miller and Riser.

Latest TabNEWZ: Here is the plan. It looks like the radiation therapy will be done by the weeks end but I am speculating. Doctor Jose will reveal it to me at the right time but we will 'take over' Mom's house in Americus. We will set up a hospital room in Mom's large living room and get a contractor...

Mac Ronay was one of my favorite acts. He was a Crazy Horse, Paris, performer and absolutely funny.

I booked him for an IBM Convention, but didn't realize he had turned the act over to his son, who showed up. Sadly, he was no where near as good... to me a flop.
