The Great Ballantine

Mark Evanier has written a nice obit for his friend Carl Ballantine, the comedy magician/actor who has died at age 92. Ballantine's magic was bad on purpose and jam-packed with funny lines. I've seen it countless times and it always put a smile on my face. Unfortunately, there's no great video of Ballantine onstage, so this will have to suffice in giving you an idea what his act was like...
