Sylvester the Jester. Did he borrow a couple iotas? Yes, let's see, off the top of my head he uses the muscle pass, a modified retention pass, some sound and visual effects to accompany his actions, and probably some other gestures that sleight of hand guys use. Would you consider his act totally original? Entirely. Could I name 4 more? Have your money ready. [/quote] You spoke like these completely original performers were a dime a dozen. I figured I would have a list of 10 from you by now. B Ps. Most of sylvesters gags were taken directly from the work of fleischer, avery, jones et al. All he did was make them performable on the stage as opposed to the screen. I don't know if that exempts him from never having 'borrowed one iota' as his whole act is about replicating someone elses work - albeit in a different media. See, this is fun. [/quote]
