Bob Arno - Europe's Prince of Thieves

Bob Arno steals watches, pens, belts, suspenders, underwear. Even shirts! Funny and awesome!Unlike most other performers in the small, specialized field of pickpocket entertainment, Arno does not present magical effects for their own sake. He does incorporate principles of magic in much the same manner that criminals, con artists, and other street thieves do. And, given that his show is comedy, he is not above preparing a volunteer on occasion to enhance his humorous finale. He has perfected the art to include neckties, suspenders, glasses, belts, cell phones, wallets, as well as watches. He is co-author of the book Travel Advisory: How to Avoid Thefts, Cons, and Street Scams.
