Most of his work is in the School for Scoundrels set. To see an incredible performance of his work check out the Gazzo Uncensored video.

i'd say from my experience of him (met him when he visited my club) he is a pretty good magician, but i was much more impressed with his banter and the way he controlled the crowd.
He's a nice guy, and for him to be still doing what he does after all he's been through is pretty amazing.

Gazzo is a great street ENTERTAINER... oh yes, he does magic too.

He can keep 200 people for half an hour with just the Cups and Balls.

Gazzo makes about US$200,000.00 a year JUST FROM STREET PERFORMING. Yes he is the best. If you ever have seen his cups and balls routine that Dave V mentioned you would know just how good he is.

Most of us can run a C & B for maybe 10 mins. he runs it for 30mins and never repeats a thing. GREAT!!

Welcome Dave.

Gazzo will usually do a few other effects, maybe with cards or hankerchiefs, but he is famous for his cups and balls.

I want to add, that he is not doing strolling magic, with his stealth pen, for 200,000 people, hoping they will let him keep the dollar. He sets up a table and does his routine as if it were a small stage show.

You can see some of Gazzo in Cellini's Art of Street Performing 3 Volume series. Get the entire series, you will not be disappointed.

Yes and it helps us to remember that before Gazzo became the God of the streets, there was Cellini.

As a side note, many of Cellini's and Gazzo's friends are trying to get them off the streets. Cellini may be done with it, but when I talked to Dan Archer this weekend, I was under the impression that they were still working on Gazzo. Street busking is a hard life, and I know that Gazzo has had a stroke.

Yes, Gazzo says he's done with the streets, and moving indoors to corporate gigs and a possible venture with Danny Archer they're calling "Beat the Cheat." I think it's a "casino night" style show with play money. It sounds like it be a perfect fund raising type of event and much more fun than the typical "silent auction" fund raisers.

Gazzo is a British magician, with a quick wit and a beautiful cups and balls routine. However, I do find that some of his humor is geared towards more of an adult audience.

His cups are huge and he produces tennis balls as a final load under the cups (6 balls!). But that's not all. As the finale to his routine, he produces a giant grapefruit from under his hat!!

His routine is done in a standing position and he uses his own customized gibiciere to hold the loads. The gibiciere is available for sale elsewhere (but you really have to look long and hard for it). I bought mine for about $260 USD.

His cups are huge, true, and very heavy (need to build your mussles). I got to see a set that Bill Palmer owns. They will load far more than a tennis ball or a baseball. He loads six very large oranges and then the grapefruit.

Gazzo makes the pouch he sells and it takes him several days to make. He charges about 500 dollars for his (great price for a hand made leather item of that quality). You can get one that is sewn instead of hand laced on his site for less. And there are one or two places where you can get a knock off for less.

Until I can justify the expense, I will stick with my camera bag that I belt to my front.
