Two observations. First, it's funny how magicians seemed to be polite and somewhat dapper in days past (although the short sleeved tux is strange). Anyway, that's the impression I always get when I see these old clips. Now you see modern magicians wearing baggy pants and yarn hats just like common street thugs. I know that's a generalization and it doesn't include everyone.

I also realize it's nice to have the wide variety of performers and different personalities.

Second, it's a good thing he didn't catch his hair on fire, it would have gone up like a roman candle.

I have to get me one of those short sleeved tuxes! Must save a lot of time rolling up his sleeves.

That was fun! Thanks for providing that link - Fantasio must be a rich man with all the canes and candles he's sold through the years.

I think he's very well off because of it, but I don't think he's up there with Blaine, Copperfield or Henning as far as riches. He is one of the nicest guys you'll meet and always creating stuff. He still has the first vanishing candle he made that is made from a plastic that says Pepsi all over it.

Fantasio is such a classy guy. I loved it
