Houdini spotted in Avignon

A user on the r/Magic Reddit shared this image of a Houdini painting in a pub in Avignon, France. You just never know where you'll run into old Harry!

This, of course, is not a real Houdini poster or even a reproduction of one. It's just a fantasy piece. If you're curious, Houdini was at Keith and Proctor's 58th Street Theater in New York on May 1, 1907.

 Au revoir.


  1. Nice! I got the impression from Houdini bios that France was not a big fan base like Great Britain. But he did perform there now and then.

    1. He performed in Paris several times and was popular. But he didn't tour the country like he did the UK and Germany.
