Topic: My run in with Bobby Reynolds

Well, I just got back from doing a trade show in Vegas last night. On the last day of the show this guys walks up to my booth and my girl goes into her pitch and when I turn around it is the legendary showman Bobby Reynolds. So, of course I spend the next 2 hours talking to him about old sideshow stuff and he even does a few ballys right there for me. He inparts a bunch of great information to me about some stunts that I have been working on and tells me that I should stay away from others. What a great end to a long few days of pitching my show to buyers. You can't beat great stories from a guy who has seen and done quite a bit.

Bobby Reynolds is a true living treasure. I had the chance to spend time with him several years ago at a Showman's League convention in Vegas and I could listen to him for hours. You are a lucky guy.

I had the pleasure to sit and chat, (more like LISTEN), with Mr. Reynolds last year in Fresno, CA at the "Hocus-Pocus Magic Shop" Swap Meet.

I'm hoping he will return, as the next one is this weekend on the 19th!
