Any one who ever came to NY's mecca for magic for its 15 year rein would have met Bob Porter, or Robert F. Porter.

He was a native of North Carolina who came to NY to get into showbusiness. He performed as a comedian in clubs throughout the NE... New York, Maryland, Pensylvania, Mass, Conn, Canada, etc., until the night club business withered away. We first met at NY's National Association of Gagwriters, or NAG, as it was known. I met him when I was a teenager and we stayed in contact all these years. When Dorothy Dietrich and I had The Magic Towne House on 61st Street and Third Avenue we hired him as our door man in charge of admissions. He was a good friend, and loyal and trustworthy.

In recent years he was in bad health. We stayed in touch on a regular basis by phone and often when we had bookings in New York City we would meet and have dinner somewhere.

We will miss him.

Bye, old friend.

We are thrilled we were able to bring The Grim Game to the world! Thanks TCM.

My sympathies to his family and friends. It is tough to lose someone who had such a good friend for so many years.
