I've been asked by a TV producer to find a small handful of performers to participate in a talent show. The taping date is scheduled to be Oct 25, in NYC. Travel may be part of the deal (and I'm not doing the negotiating).

There is one other requirement. Your significant other will also be along for the ride. (S)he should not really approve of what you do.

If you're interested, PM me with your contact information. I'd like to know what you'd do with 2-3 minutes (sorry, it's still a TV show). And I need your real name and phone.

Sounds interesting Harley!

(I'm retired!) but, your, "I'd like to know what you'd do with 2-3 minutes....." reminded me of Mark Leddy (who booked talent for the old ED SULLIVAN TV show in NYC--"way back when".

The Sullivan show gave almost "unlimited" (???) time to the young rock & roll bands, but often (usually !!!) cut the novelty acts to a minute (sometimes 2 minutes).

Magicians will remember the late Karrell Fox, who was definitely a very successful talent.

Karrell told me that Mark asked him what he would do, if he (Mark) booked him for the Sullivan show. Karrell told me that he replied to Mark: "I'd S**T!" Mark responded: "You're booked!" (and, he was!)

I remember that Karrell did the ancient sucker bit with three large cards (two with blue 'spots' and one with a red 'spot'. The three cards were covered with a cloth mat, then the two blue cards were removed and the audience thought that the red card was left. Of course, the card still in the mat had "fooled" on one side, and "fooled again" on the other side. Karrell had chutzpah!!!
