Q: What do these guys have in common? Dunninger, Penn and Teller, Ricky Jay, Jamy Ian Swiss, Apollo Robbins.

A: They have been the subjects of lengthy Profiles in The New Yorker.

The latest in this list is Apollo Robbins, Profiled in the current issue (Jan 7) of the magazine, just out on its iPad version, which includes a video of Apollo in action. Delightful reading. (And viewing.)

Wow, what a terrific piece! Mention of Rod the Hop and Bart Whaley, plus significant quotes from Penn and Teller. Thanks for the link!
