Does anyone know if "James Randi" is his real name? I am putting together some research, and would like to find out. Is it a stage name?

I am wondering if his first name was originally Andy, and he changed it to James so it sounded better.

It is not his birth name, that was Randall James Hamilton Zwinge.

Hahaha!!!

Brilliant.

"The Amazing Zwinge"

Would have been great!

:)

My real name is Foley Snorker von Stramming. Do you think that is a good stage name?

Other names he could have plumped for:

Jammi Hamster
Randy Jim Swinger
Z.H.J.Randall
The Hammi Zwingi
Randy Jammy Hammy Zwinge.

The list is endless.

Every time you want to do some kind of reseach, this is usually the right place:

No, that is not the best place to do research, much of the information there is incomplete, biased, or depending on who appended the data, pure speculation or fantasy. One must be careful when using that source, and most every source on the internet and in print.

I remember the amazing Randi on tv when I was a kid. I liked him then.
I'm sorry, but all the different threads on this forum about and surrounding this guy's philosophies and beliefs have long since gone beyond, "ad nauseum".

Maybe "Top Hat" (veteren user of alcohol) has finally put it into proper perspective...
Either way, "the list Is endless". Smile

THere are many sources to find out his name. Easy is to just email him and ask. He has also posted information about his name on his site. Check his achives.

I think he was born old.
He was old back when I was a kid.

I remember watching him on Happy Days reruns.

Yes, quite. (Unexpectedly, this thread is starting to have that "old creative feel" to it.)

Who would have thought ? Smile
