Hat Pilfering Producers

The 1st time a producer asked me to organize and collect $ for a group fire show was in Edmonton ... after it was over, I went up to the producer (Dick Finkle) with several thousand dollars ... he told me to "do whatever you'd like" with the proceeds. He wanted the performers to make the decisions on where the money went or how it was used. Dick was a giving, generous man and a consummate producer.

On the other side of the toonie, I watched another producer put most of his profits (from similar group shows) up his nose.

It seemed that when certain producers start seeing all that money (which as we all know only looks like a lot) they figure out sometimes elaborate ways to get their hands on some of it.

If this becomes a trend, I'm gonna do cruise ships instead.
