Hey Tom(!),..a pleasure seeing your work.
I've always enjoyed it.
The Bananas are great!

...i noticed at 'the Castle'
you wore a different costume...🤔
.... there's still that 'tie and jacket' regulation, eh... 😕

I've to admit, though,
I'm still working with your cigar routine(!),...
I 'stole' from a film clip you put up years ago(!..!),..
with Cellini,..at a Busker's Fest.
GREAT ROUTINE(!),..
especially opening with the smoke!

...i never said 'thanks'...
"THANKS!". 👍

I wish you a long run at the castle,..
[ are the drinks for free? 🤔]
Keep rolling,
gallagher

p.s.: For me,..
the 'highlight'' of that old film clip,
was 'the Lady',..at the end,...
manipulating those coins...💋
Great bit.

Thanks for your kind words Gallager. Yes the Castle is still a suit and tie club. I'm kind of digging clothing optional these days as it's regularly in the high 90's in my neighborhood. Sadly Marianne Heller (Cellini's partner), the woman with the coins in the vid, passed away in June at the age of 57. Very sad news.

I'm really sad to hear this.
I had written her, two years ago,
commending her work.

She was VERY good.
Technically,..an inspiration for me,...with coins.
I love her routine.

So many never recognized her.
This is sad new.

Still,...forwards.
And 'thanks' for YOUR inspiration, as well.
(It's great seeing a 'Curb-side Conjure',...crack the Castle walls!
...altho I've read,..,
you've played OVER 25 years there! Great!..!)

I wish you much success,
...with the bananas. 👍

This will be my35 the year of working the Castle! Time flies like a . . . banana,. . . Never thought I would get to say that and have it make sense.

Peace

Love

I had the sound turned off, but sub titles on, for the sake of my significant other.

I like the trick... some day, I hope to have enough disposable income to get it.

If you're going to use "Yes, We Have No Bananas," I might suggest doing the whole song and sneaking a fake tomato and potato into your hands, to be dropped on the bar at key sequences;

"Yes, we have no bananas
We have-a no bananas today
We've string beans, and onions
Cabashes, and scallions,
And all sorts of fruit and say
We have an old fashioned tomato
A Long Island potato But yes, we have no bananas
We have no bananas today

This might bring up that you don't produce "string bean" or "onions"
but I think the humor of dropping a tomato and a potato onto the table
would out weigh that.

(I think I mis-remember the lyrics, as I thought they were; "We have an old-fashioned potato, a new-fangled tomato" which would refer to the fact that potatoes have been with us for centuries, whereas tomatoes were, until the 1800's thought to be poisonous!)
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"
