See Doc Eureka Wonder's
(that's me)
Miracle * Patented * Wonder
Snake Oil Spectacular
(that's the over-written title)
full of anecdotes and antidotes handsomely contrived for you, the viewer
(that's the too-long tag line)
as well as the Hanlon-Lees and Whipflash
(among others)
at:

The Wild West Show
@ the PA Renaissance Faire.
May 26 and 27, 11am to 7pm.
Info: 717-665-7021 x132
www.parenfaire.com

As a performer, last year's show was some of the most fun I've ever had, and that was in the pouring rain. If you're in the area, (exit 20 off the PA Turnpike, 15 miles north of Lancaster, about 1 hour from Philly) and want to stop by, leave me a voicemail at 212.501.4692 and I should be able to get you a comp.

I got the part!
An American Film Institute (AFI) film (that means free), entitled:
"The Dance" written by Craig Horning
directed by Annabelle Frost

They were looking for an aging street performer father who used to have a good act ... ok, so that might be a bit of a stretch.

one foot in front of the other, Robert ...

We have just finished performing 2 days(sponsored)with our Jazz Marionettes at Jazzfest.
Our crowds weren't QUITE as big as B.B. King, Paul Simon, or the Neville Brothers for example, but we did have fun. Kelly.

We've had a good week media wise, I got 1 front page, 2 x page 2's (all different projects), and, believe it or not, was the key player in a major sports controversy.
But the big news is Lee Galea's short movie "Pacman", starring the Prof. is short-listed for the Directors Award at the St. Kilda Film Festival.

I'll be performing the Acme Miniature Circus this Saturday (6/23)for free at Theatre Double, 1619 Walnut Street in Philadelphia. It's part of the RAT Conference. After me will be a series of short plays, as well as an Open Mike! Come check it out!

WHEN: SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 2001 8 pm
WHERE: THEATRE DOUBLE, 1619 Walnut Street, Philadelphia
COST: Free

There are no reserve tickets, so get there early! Theatre Double is small!

The Acme Miniature Circus -- An authentic Victorian style flea circus. Trained fleas perform Spectacular Circus Stunts As Seen
Before (And on top of) The Crowned Heads of Europe. Part
performance art, part sideshow, and part entomological derring
do. This show has received rave reviews and sellout crowds from
Boston to Brazil. Come see the show that the Minneapolis
Star-Tribune called "A Wacky Witty Creature Feature" and about
which the Los Angeles Times said "Adam Gertsacov holds the
audience (and the performers) in the palm of his hand."

There was a picture of me on page two I think of June 8th USA Today and a feature article in the Youngstown Vindicatoron the 9th of June.

I suck. I'm really bad at juggling and no one likes me accept for the press and Brooks and Dunn. I love the science of performing. I like women.

I hear bikeboy's really good, though. I hear he shoots stuff out of the anus.

Question

Did I just see Jeff Mosche doing several of his magic routines on WSJ (Wall Street Journal Report) on ABC just a few minutes ago... or was it just an illusion?
