Eric Z. Price was shot in the head outside Waldo Pizza on November 30. Amazingly, he survived and continues to recover.
No mere drink and pizza slinger, Price made a name for himself before the tragedy as a magician. The Pitch even gave him an award for Best Bar Trick back in 2006 for his ability to wow with a deck of cards. Of course, he's still in the midst of his best trick yet -- bouncing back from the awful random act of violence.
This Saturday's benefit should help.
The event is a magic and comedy show, featuring Kansas City tricksters Tom Burgoon, Devin Henderson and Todd Lamanske. It all goes down at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Kansas City Improv Club at 7260 NW 87th Street. Tickets are $10.
The show is appropriate for all ages, so rally the whole family to help Price.
