In his typical show, he portrayed the characters Cagliostro, Eulenspiegel, Munchhausen, and Punx, whith each having an appropriate costume and different presentations.

Punx was as artistic as he was controversial. He would go to great lengths to produce a perfect presentation. Some magicians resented Punx, because he would only allow those that he deemed able to perform is pet routines the rights to perform them.

Over the years he contributed articles to Genii and the German magic magazine Magie and Magische Welt.

Bill Palmer translated several of Punx's works from German to English including Magical Adventures and Fairy Tales, Fourth Dimensional Mysteries and Farewell Performance.[1][2]
