Page 1 of RIP Siegfried Fischbacher (of Siegfried and Roy)
I saw some social media posts from Penn (and Teller) about this last night:
Siegfried Fischbacher: Member of magic duo Siegfried and Roy dies aged 81
Siegfried Fischbacher, one half of celebrated magic double act Siegfried and Roy, has died from pancreatic cancer in Las Vegas at the age of 81
Roy Horn died from Covid-19 complications last May.
Both Siegfried & Roy are now gone. S&R invented the full length magic show headlining Vegas. A very different style but without S&R there is no P&T in Vegas. Pure showbiz and pure class. He was a team. We are a team. As Tolstoy wrote -Successful magic teams are all the same
Might have to watch Father of the Pride - cartoon series based on their lions, I remember it being pretty funny!

RIP, there act was a bit frightening dealing with Lions without a cage.
Even subdued Lions just like cats can be temperamental and might lash out. Been hit with a few cat paws in my time, and they do hurt.
Remember a circus act in Oz, pre health and safety days, and the Lion on a lead, got off it and ran at the crowds, but luckily dived out the tent, for a drink. water not lager, and was re-captured
We thought it was part of the act. LOL

You obviously forgot what happened to Roy.

A good point, forgot about that incident. Rob.
Cats can be real vicious, we used to have a black one we got in the cat and dog home, wife wanted it, and it was a nasty bit of work.
It disappeared one night and never returned, sorted. No more cats.
