Andy Dallas is an interesting character whom many of you should know as a Past President of the Society of American Magicians (2006-2007) but he is also a world renown hypnotist, lecturer, and escape artist. In his early career, Andy performed the "usual" escapes from chains, handcuffs, locked trunks, upside down straight jackets, manacles and more. But he also escaped from many unique, creative and original escapes including his "Triple Death Trap"
Andy is also known as a collector of carnival con games that you can't win and old, mechanical pinball/pachinko games. But in recent years he is best known as the owner and proprietor of the Dallas & Co. Costumes & Magic in Champaign, Illinois. And for my money, he has the best handling and presentation of the iconic "Zombie" ball of anyone in the world.
