Mike Caldwell (1926-1995) was a professional comedy magician and MC.


He was famous for his "Caldwell Flip" in which he would land flat on his back with a great thump.

He was known for a comedy routine in which he borrowed a young boy's handkerchief, cut a large hole in it and, after some comic by-play and several failed attempts, restored the handkerchief.
