||Back in the ’80s, when comedy clubs were at their golden peak, there were a handful of performers whose 8X10 photos would inevitably spring up on the walls of the showrooms. One of them was John Ferrentino. He usually had a hatchet dissecting his head in the picture. John has a fascinating and successful career, continually reinventing himself and adapting his performance to conquer fresh markets with his unique hybrid of comedy and magic and taking it to new places. I recently had the opportunity to interview John and catch up with the latest, somewhat surprising, trajectory in his illustrious career. He also shares some great advice for younger magicians that is sage, simple, and priceless.
