He did a United States tour in 1910 and was the first magician appeared at the London Palladium music hall in 1911. He was at one time a highly paid music hall artist. Maurice Fogel, in his teens, was once an assistant.
His shows consisted of large illusions on a brilliantly set stage. Some of his famous ones were "Ayesha, Queen of the Air", a levitation where the assistant floated gracefully while dancing and skipping; the cremation illusion; and the automaton "Vril".
Rameses died almost penniless of colon cancer at the age of 54.
