Peter Marucci wins second Howard Bamman trophy

Congratulations Peter!  

FERGUS - Retired Fergus “magicomedian” Peter Marucci has been awarded the Howard Bamman trophy for the second time by the International Brotherhood of Magicians, in recognition of his 28-year contribution to the organization’s magazine The Linking Ring.

The Fergus resident is the only Canadian ever to receive the award and the only magician to receive it twice.

In his Showtime column, Marucci would outline a new illusion every month and give detailed instructions on incorporating “patter” into performances - his trademark.

Farewell to "Showtime"

In the November issue of the Linking Ring, Peter Marucci penned his last issue of "Showtime," which ran since 1991.  Peter indicates that he is physically unwell, but would love to hear from everyone via e-mail.  His name is listed among the "Sick and Convalescent" IBM members.

I remember meeting Peter, back in the days when Ring 17 was meeting in a deli basement.  He always brought a smile to my face.  I also remember reading his fun submissions in the Globe and Mail.

Peter can be reached at:  pmarucci [at] cogeco [dot] ca

His snail mail address can be found in the Linking Ring.

I'm sending happy vibes to Fergus for you Peter!
