I once saw Shari Lewis do an amazing job of singing and doing color changing liquids on a magic television special...I think it was just called The Magic Show, and she was one of many artists to appear on it including Doug Henning.
Does anyone know of this special, or the routine? I am looking for this specific one, it was truly wonderful.

It was produced in Canada and she was the
mc. It included Flip ,Tomsoni, the Canadian ballet and a scene
from the broadway show Mandrake the magician. She does a color
changing punch routine in the show.

What did Doug Henning do on this??

Doug was in the states already and did not appear
in this show. It used ed fernadez's equipment and
was a Canadian production

If anyone knows how I can see a copy of this show, I'd love to know.
The punch routine was the best.

Perhaps Shari's daughter, who is a current perfomer/ventriloquist can be of assitance in securing this footage.

She has a web site and you should be able to find her site and contact info by surfing the net.

Best of luck!

I bleive that many members will enjoy a visit to this site for a nostalgic look at Shari Lewis' stunning career, and also for a look at Mallory's blossoming career.

Enjoy.

OK, this subject is ten years old, but for anyone who care to have a look this special can now be seen [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXlliivSDDk]here[/url].
The punch effect is at 11:54.

Thanks for the link, Frank. Shari Lewis was so good! One of the greatest vents of all time , imo.

One of the 70's and 80's magic specials I have never seen before .

Mark and Nani and a mylar glitter curtain ... takes me back to that time ... sweet. That really was a superbly performed Asrah levi.

Wow... what a great memory! I designed several things for her for that show including the silk opener. I just remember rehearsing with her in her living room. She was an amazing performer. I'll have to watch the rest of it to see what else was in there!
