Mr. Electric illuminates the Skirball, Sunday

Just a reminder that the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles will host a conversation between magic historian Mike Caveney and the legendary Marvyn Roy (a.k.a Mr. Electric) this Sunday at 2:00 p.m. inside the Skirball's Magnin Auditorium. The talk will be followed by a book signing.

For this final Houdini Art and Magic event, the Skirball is generously offering WILD ABOUT HARRY readers a two-for-one discount on tickets. Just enter the promo code 99731 when booking online or over the phone, (877) 722-4849. Click for more details and to order tickets online.

Houdini Art and Magic leaves the Skirball on September 4, so this Sunday might be an ideal time to visit or revisit the exhibition. I'll see you there!


  1. It was great meeting you at the Mr. Electric talk yesterday at the Skirball, John. It was fantastic seeing and hearing the legendary Marvyn Roy! Thank you for the free ticket -- your timing was uncanny and a welcomed surprise. My wife and I really enjoyed the exhibit, too. Loved chatting with you around Gaughan's repro USD, that thing is just amazing.



  2. It was great meeting you and your wife, Ross. Marvyn really was wonderful and, yeah, John's USD is fabulous. Fun day, and meeting you made it more so. Let's keep in touch. :)
