The Unique Comic Conjuror and Deceptionist -- July 3, 2012

This ad for the Orpheum Theatre in Salt Lake City features Imro Fox, "The Unique Comic Conjuror and Deceptionist."  I like the word "deceptionist."  Fox famously combined excellent sleight of hand and other illusions with one-liners told in a charming German accent. There was an "expert lariat thrower" on the bill who was called Will Rogers.  I wonder what became of him.  From the 03-April-1909 Goodwin's Weekly.
