Richiardi Jr.

He became infamous for dramatic and gory stage presentations of classic stage illusions. In 1949, Time magazine noted that these shock tactics had made his act one of the top earning stage shows in New York.

Richiardi made many television appearances, including 24 on the Ed Sullivan Show, the most appearances by any magician on that landmark series.
