Posted by Michael on October 19th, 2018

We’re not sure when this was recorded, but the old standard definition TV aspect ratio makes us think it could be at least a couple years old. Nonetheless, here is a Glenn Bishop performance from his debut week at the Castle. Although I don’t know Glenn, I know he is a St. Louis boy just like me!

The Pigeon Magic Troupe Returns

Posted by Michael on October 17th, 2018

The latest installment of the Pigeon Magic Troupe has been posted on the official KBS Youtube page. This is an ongoing series of parody magic performances from the KBS network show Gag Concert.
