During my years as a professional magician (1970-1973), I performed as Janus the Magician, Mister Twister the Magic Clown, and Mendell the Mentalist - the latter doing a mind-reading, psychic-phenomena type act for junior-high school students. At the end of each show, I confessed I was a trickster, transforming the event into an educational performance. (See also Escape Artist, Magic Clown, Magic Pitchman, Stage Magician.)
