MAGICIAN HEADLINES GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH

zing200"The Greatest Show on Earth" aka Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus has revamped its' show for 2009 and 2010 to feature a magician as the star performer. Alex Ramon began performing magic eight years ago when he was only fifteen and is now the "Zingmaster" for the all new Red Tour of the circus called "Zing Zang Zoom." Ramon told the Tampa Bay Tribune, "I'm the very first zingmaster in Ringling Bros. history," Ramon said. "So the first question is, 'What's the difference?' I am going to be doing the announcing, as a traditional ringmaster would, but I'm also going to be performing magic and illusions throughout the show. It's a very big change for the circus."  One of the featured effects in the new show is an elephant vanish. For more info on Zing Zang Zoom, visit the Show's website. According to Richard Kaufman at Genii, Jim Steinmeyer is the magic consultant for the show and is in Florida working with the team as they get ready for the tour.
