Ricky Jay / Remembering Peter Scolari

Friday, 29 October

This week Sotheby's auctioned off The Ricky Jay collection — a portion of the rare books, posters, and objects chronicling the world of magic, carnivals and eccentric characters — which the master sleight-of-hand artist had collected over his life. We're revisiting portions of our interviews with Ricky Jay.

Also, we remember comic actor Peter Scolari, best-known for his roles in the 1980s TV sitcoms 'Bosom Buddies,' opposite Tom Hanks, and 'Newhart,' with Bob Newhart. Scolari died last week at the age of 66.
