Tony Slydini (September 1, 1901 – January 15, 1991) was born Quintino Marucci in Italy, but he became famous worldwide as simply "Slydini".
He was a master of closeup artistry, mentoring and inspiring many of the great names in modern magic.
Not only was he an incredible manipulator, he was also a master entertainer.
My favorite routine is his classic BALLS OVER THE HEAD comedy classic...

I LOVE Slydini! I count him as a major influence. I'm so grateful to Dick Cavett for the well recorded episodes of Slydini performing, preserving some of this legendary magicians work.
