When you are saying "Lord I appologize" were you talking to Gazzo?
I am truly blessed to have a job where people are laughing all the time and everyone believes in magic....Come to think of it, I'm blessed to even have a job.

Gazzo is a busker that said that he was retiring and very may well have. He's one of those really raspy guys when performing whose humor is sort of edgy, but he pulls it off so very well.

In person he's a wonderful person. He's just a tad eccentric, not much out of the norm. He's quite friendly though.

His act is certainly magic but his interaction with the crowd, his presentation, is what makes him great.

To give you a tiny example of his humor, these might be quotes, if not they are close:

"Come on up here, little boy, help me with this --- no, no, don't be shy, I'm your REAL daddy. Ha ha, just kidding, it could be ANY of us."

"Go ahead and keep that dollar little boy. It's a magic dollar. If you put it under your pillow tonight it will turn into a TWENTY, isn't that right, Mom?" (he says while nodding his head vigorously.

He has a book filled with one liners like that called "Read Between the Lines". I think you can find it on MagicPitch. I haven't used many of those lines in performance but I bought it and got some real belly laughs out of it.

Found this on Wikipedia:

Gazoo often appears before Fred and Barney in random, often inopportune moments. He refers to Fred as "dum-dum" and constantly causes problems for him. Even when he attempts to help Fred out, he usually ends up causing even more trouble. The only people who are able to see him are Fred, Barney, and the children (because they believe in him). A running gag is that Fred argues with Gazoo while Wilma believes that he's talking to himself. Also, whenever Pebbles says Gazoo Wilma thinks she is sneezing, possibly catching cold.

Because Gazoo was introduced into the show midway through the final season and is considered quite an absurd character, being a futuristic alien that appears in the middle of the Stone Age, he is often cited by fans and critics of the show as being an example of the fact that the show had "jumped the shark." Indeed, the show was cancelled shortly after his first appearance, although it cannot be said that Gazoo contributed in any way to the series' conclusion.


In all seriousness, someone ought to write cellini's and gazzo's biog. for wikipedia.

Saheer, one question....What the %$#@ are you talking about?

Maybe I'm lost or something.

Gazoo was an outer space character on the Flintstones. Saheer misread who I was talking about - or is unfamiliar with GAZZO.

What DO they teach these kids coming up these days? Smile Smile Smile

My first couple months performing on the street I was 50 feet from Kozmo half the time. Frustration and education all in one. Often I wondered if it was not to late to become an accountant.

Things that may shock a busker:

Watching a statue beat up a heckler.

The heckler made him move and threw garbage in his cup.

The statue guy (a rough carachter if I ever saw one) picked up his sword and chased the guy down the street.

Using a hand-held mike connected to a hot-chassised amplifier plugged into the mains while standing in a puddle of water. That will shock a busker.
