Spotted: The Great Humble Hughdini at Menlo Park farmers market
If you found yourself at the Chestnut St. end of the Menlo Park farmers market this morning, you were likely to encounter a traffic jam as kids got in line to experience the magic of The Great Humble Hughdini aka Professor Mumblemore aka the Magic Beard. Hughdini has been performing on the Peninsula for many years, designing shows that appeal to adults and children. He’s noted in particular for his sleight of hand. This morning he was making gold coins disappear and appear, sometimes out of his beard, and showing how rubber bands can magically change once around the wrists of youngsters.
