Harry At His Finest

Posted by Michael on April 20th, 2018

There are a whole bunch of great Harry Anderson routines. Everybody always thinks of his needle through arm, which is amazing, but for my money it is The Grappler. This clip, by the way, was posted on YouTube by Meir Yedid, who was the source to get Harry’s stuff the last few years. If you are wanting a copy of Hello, Sucker or Tricks Of His Trade, well, I think they are gone… but Meir has his books and effects on his site.

Have a great, but safe, weekend everyone.

Goodbye, Harry.

Today Show coverage of the David Copperfield trial leads off our day. Read more from NBC/the Associated Press via MSN, the BBC News via MSN and the Washington Post.

There are a few rumblings out there in Internetland about the new CBS Access show Strange Angel being based on a true story about magicians… it is, but not the iTricks kind of magicians. More the Aleister Crowley kind… specifically Jack Parsons who hung with Crowley and L. Ron Hubbard.

Interesting story from The Sun about the Britain’s Got Talent magician who got this season’s first Golden Buzzer; it seems that Marc Spelmann hassle anti-BGT and Simon Cowell tweets in his past!

Here’s the scoop on the rest of the day: today’s Video Friday is Harry’s day. We are going to share some clips of Harry Anderson, but probably not ones you have seen. We are going to focus on conversations with Harry instead of performance.
