Bio: Harry Houdini was an Austrian-Hungarian-born American stunt performer, noted for his sensational escape acts. He first attracted notice as Harry Handcuff Houdini, on a tour of Europe, where he would sensationally challenge different police-forces to try to keep him locked up. This revealed a talent for gimmickry and for audience involvement that would characterise all his work.

Quote of the day
