Close, but not quite right.

I am pretty sure this is another German master from the 70s/80s, Manfred Cattarius, performing with his wife as "Les Cattarius".

They won the German national championship of the Magic Circle in 1978 in the "general magic with music" category. (Incidentally, Mr. Black and Ursula came in second that year.)

If he is German, why isn't it Mr. Schwarz?

...probably for the same reasons a "Mr. Schreiber" became Kalanag, a "Mr. Weiss" - Houdini and a "Mr. Yarbrough".....?!
