He used "Pomp and Circumstance" as his entrance music, and he would allow many bars of that to go by after his name was spoken, before he would burst upon the stage, walking out, taking off his jacket and throwing his jacket to the back of the stage, rolling up his shirt sleeves, stepping to the front of the audience, silencing the orchestra, and saying to them, "Im Harry Houdini.
