Keen, Henry

He was once The Great Foscarellie


Henry Keen was once the famous stage magician The Great Foscarellie.

From the late 1950s up to the early 1980s Henry was one of the most famous stage magicians of the world. He had shows in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. In 1977 he was even invited by Leonid Brezhnev to perform in Moscow.

His shows where never really innovative but the way Henry Keen performed the old tricks (and sometimes reinvented them) where spectacular and had the flair of the great Las Vegas magic shows of the 1990s.

In 1955 he married his assistant Arleena (Abigail Frisk). She died 1956 during childbirth as did the child, a little girl. Henry never remarried again but had several affairs.

In 1987 he retired from the stage, claiming that his fingers where growing stiff and slowly. Since than he sometimes performs for charity events, mostly for children, and now and than in small theatres in Gotham Village.

He is a member of a magic Legacy called Oder of Splendor.
