|Eric Price is eager to start performing magic again at Waldo Pizza.|
This morning, Plog reports that several local magicians have arranged for a fundraising show Saturday night at the Kansas City Improv Club in Zona Rosa.
The benefit will raise funds for another area performer, Eric Z. Price, who has been a featured magician at the original Waldo Pizza for several years. Price was shot in the head while sitting in his car in the restaurant's parking lot November 30.
"He's recovering very, very well," says Waldo Pizza owner Phil Bourne. "In fact, it's a miracle his recovery is going at such a rapid pace."
Price, Bourne adds, has said he plans to return to work at the pizzeria at the end of January or early February.
"But his jaw is still wired together," Bourne says. "They loosened the wires a bit when he put together a group of friends here last month to kick off a new anti-violence campaign called Think Twice."
Price has been in Florida visiting a friend recently, Bourne says. "He still has quite a bit of recovery left, but he's a survivor."
