The Key of G Demolished


Of note:  Rochelle Wisoff-In-F-Fields conducting.

On drums:  John Nixon, who posted this picture, thanks!

A one-a and-a two-a and-a three-a …


During his act with Harlequin and Pierrot, Bonzo fell flat … right into the piano keyboard after playing his favorite tune, “Allegro Molto, Choclo Molto.”

Suddenly, a man in black ran to the piano, reached over, grabbed at the two legs of the stuck Bonzo in the keyboard.  He pulled them apart.  Dummy legs!

Harlequin and Pierrot gasped.  “Who are you?”

He threw off his top hat. “It’s ME!  BONZO!”  He sat down and played his favorite song.

Pierrot exhaled.  “How did you do that?”

Bonzo continued playing.  “Boys, if you want a leg up on the competition, remember — get TWO!”

  1. Now in memory of Chuckles we observe a moment. Sounds like he had four legs. Hahahahaha.

    First up this week, and a real show-starter! Nice one Kent.

  5. That sets the tone for this week, I think. What a showman this Bonzo is. I love those magic shows where you think, “Wait, how in the world…?”

  6. vbholmes says:

    He had to have more than two legs to pull off that trick…good one.

  7. Performers – always clowning around
    good moral to performers

    Chuckl3s was always so full of unexpected surprises. A clown who could channel his inner magician!

    A seriously good magic act! And a fantastic last line!

  10. Two legs up on the competition is twice as good as just getting one leg up. Good stuff, Kent.

    How fun and so very clever. the first FF I’ve read this week. I’m laughing and you’ve set the standard high for all of us. Good one! 🙂

  13. And the sound of nervous laughter is drowned by the Ba-dumpa-dump of the drums. 😉
