Jules Fisher is a Tony award winning lighting designer for plays and theater. He has worked on shows with Harry Blackstone Jr and Ricky Jay, among others. The wikipedia article about him says he is from Norristown, PA.

Mad Magazine started out as a comic book. The first 23 issues were in that format, and #24 was the first magazine style issue. The last comic issue has a letter from one Jules Fisher, of Norristown, PA. Coincidence?

Your furshlugginer magazine is the best for do-it-yourself articles. The one on the veeblefetzer was top-drawer material. As I was looking through an old Erector Set the other day, I found an old left-handed veeblefetzer. The only trouble was that the throttle arm was caked with Mahtosh. Do you think that I could clean it with some good-old Grocket Farsmellnik? Jules Fisher Norristown, Pa.

Jules is also the LD (Lighting Director) that is famous for the dancing hands in "Pippin" Magic To Do
He has attended several of the Magic History conferences and lectured a few years ago. He used tractor lights in the floor to throw a beam of light that the actors could move their hands in and out of.
