Dear magic friends!

I do a newsletter 4x a year for my fan club of Harry Anderson the magician. I was wondering if I could get some help from you all concerning his magic tricks, ability etc... Can you please take time to answer 5 questions for an article I will be writing in the next issue of my Harry Fan Club newsletter? I will be compiling answers to rate what magicians think about Harry.
Here they are, and thanks for your help. Any questions please e-mail me at harryandersonfan@yahoo.com
-------------------------
1. What trick routine/illusion do you feel Harry is MOST noted for?
2. What category or "type" of magician would you classify Harry Anderson as?
3. Which is the easiest illusion of Harry's one can perform?
4. What is the most impressive illusion/trick that you have seen Harry perform?
5. Would/Will you visit Spade and Archer (his magic and curiosities shop) in New Orleans in the future?

Thanks for your time!

I think "Geek" is... more of a persona than a type of magician, Payne. Smile
If anyone sees my sanity, please return it to

me.

No, there is a definite sub-genre of Geek Magic. Needle through Arm, Swallowing Razor Blades, Eating Napkins, etc.
Mullica's Nicotine Nicompoop certainly qualifies as geek magic. In fact, he failed to place at a FISM Comedy magic competition as the judges thought he was actually eating the cigarettes and napkins.

1) Needle through arm
2) comedy/geek
3) Shadow card or Gang of 4
4) Tippy
5) If I go that way.
6) Geek is a real style of performing. I'm not sure if the purists in the form prefer the term.
7) Mullica's routine rocks
8) D. None of the above
9) The train leaving from Denver will arrive first.
10) Who is Harry Anderson again?
