Johnny Thompson Memorial


The Magic Castle memorial service for our past Board of Director member and one of the truly great and influential magicians in the world was this past Sunday.

Johnny Thompson was known as the Great Tomsoni. He had a wonderful comedy dove act with his wife Pam.

Alan Bursky served as emcee, and tributes and stories about Johnny were plentiful. Pam looked great and was very pleased with the celebration.

Johnny was a great friend and I will miss him.

About Pop Haydn

I am not originally from the 21st Century myself, but have been stuck here by accident--not entirely my fault--with a bunch of other maroons from another very different time and place... Nevertheless, my companions and I love it here and just like everyone else we are just trying to get by in this exciting and progressive era. With a variety show of steampunk-oriented magic, comedy and music, Pop's company entertains and sells a few bottles of Amazing Miracle Oil, Wonder Elixer, or Magnetized Water.

  1. It was a great loss Pop. Dang it. I know we all have to go someday, but for those of us that stay behind, I feel, we must celebrate that life and lift the Spirit of the departed as well as our own. Thanks for your thoughts.
