MAGIC, GAMES, PUZ ZLES, ILLUSIONS, HACKS & SCAMS FOR ENTERTAINMENT PU RPOSES ONLY!

Jim was asked to continue his hypnosis shows at the new location and in 2017 he was asked to produce a weekly afternoon magic show titled Spinnato’s Magic Matinee. The show runs on most Sundays and some Saturdays with guest magicians appearing every week. As some of you may know, a few months ago the Comix Comedy Club re-branded itself as the Comix Roadhouse by adding another venue that features country music, dancing and fun. But the comedy and magic shows continue in the beautiful comedy club theater. This will be my first appearance at the Comix Roadhouse. Should I wear Cowboy Boots and Hat? In a recent conversation with Jim I asked him to share one of his favorite things to do when messing around with friends. He mentioned the Acrobatic Glasses which he learned from Harry Anderson and Turk Pipkin’s “Games You Can’t Lose” book, which is full of similar ruses. The scam is actually very old and goes under many different names. It can be used as a fun game, a challenge or even as a bet to cheat your friends out of their hard-earned money. On Sunday June 2nd, I will be performing at the new Comix Roadhouse (formally Comix Comedy Club) located at the Mohegan Sun Casino. If you come to the show, please stick around and say hello. The show is produced by Jim Spinnato and is called Spinnato’s Magic Matinee. It runs almost every Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Jim is a world class hypnotist and his comedy hypnosis show has been running there for many years. He started out at the Comix Comedy Club at Foxwoods Casino in 2010 until it moved to the Mohegan Sun Casino in 2015. 104 / Rivertown Magazine June 2019

By the way, if you are ever at the Mohegan Sun on a weekend, you should catch Jim’s hypnosis or magic shows. And if you tell him Meir said Hi and you saw this column… I am sure you will put a big smile on his face. Harry Anderson and I were close friends and business partners. Several years ago, I purchased his personal inventory of “Games You Can’t Lose” and had him handautograph every single copy. This is a great opportunity to get an autographed book by a major TV star (Night Court, Dave’s World, Cheers, etc.). You can purchase it at gamblingincorporated.com.
