NOT HIS 'FIRST DAY ON THE JOB' ! Isn't it great to watch a performer who doesn't need to think: "Hmmm, now what's the next move?"

Watching this man reminded me of an anecdote of Harris Solomon's. (in "Linking Ring" -- in the '50a, I think)

After WWII, Harris was in Egypt and watched a street magician doing cups & balls. The magician obviously knew how to stop 'em, hold 'em and 'get the money'! Harris waited 'til the crowd had moved on, and approached the performer. With minimal knowledge (on both 'sides') of the other's language, Harris complimented the performer, who replied, "You, magician?" Harris replied, "How do you know?" The man came back, "You watch right cup!"

Harris stopped a street vendor and bought two cups of coffee. As they shareed the coffee and struggled with the language difficulty, Harris slipped on his metal TT, took out a handkerchief and vanished his lit cigarette butt in the handkerchief. The Egyptian's eyes bugged out!. Harris thought to himself, "There isn't a magic shop within a couple thousand miles, and I can get another from Tannen for 75 cents when I return to NYC." He showed the magician the feke and how to use it, and then gave him the TT. The street performer now had a trick that no other magician in Egypt had! He smiled his thanks and they parted company.

Harris later said, " I KNEW he was a real magician. His skin was as black as skin could be, BUT, he did not say,'It doesn't match my thumb!'"

Really like it. He was very smooth with the moves. Got me off guard a couple of times. Thanks for the upload. Love to see performers like this.
