Ten years ago today, the original Human Blockhead left this world behind. He was 94. Here are videos of his last performance, done a month before at our wedding:

Thanks so much Todd. I had heard these were up before and then I was never able to find them. Perhaps I just dreamed it but had the opportunity to see them up in Coney before at the Melvin tribute. Regardless thanks for sharing (or sharing again).

My boss, John Bradshaw used Melvin's Fraddy Cat routine , with permission, for years in his shows.
One of the last living 10-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.
