So here is a bit of a history lesson for those of you new to iTricks. Back in the 1990s NBC produced a World’s Greatest Magic special most years around the Thanksgiving holidays. Five in all, they were star studded events with some of the biggest names in Las Vegas as well as up and coming performers… and I am willing to bet these specials, or their spin offs (such as the World’s Most Dangerous Magic and the World’s Wildest Magic), were what hooked many of y’all on magic. The video above is just the introduction to the first WGM special… they were serious, high dollar productions!

Since we are in a slow news cycle, I am sick (I think I am just sick but we’ll see what the tests say) and it is almost Thanksgiving, iTricks will be featuring performances from the World’s Greatest Magic and the WGM spin offs today and pretty much all of next week although iTricks will probably take off for the day on Thanksgiving.
