Is This A Magic Act?

Posted by Michael on June 3rd, 2020

I mean personally, I do not think I can quite categorize this as a magic act… but that is kind of how Jen and Daiquiri billed themselves last night on America’s Got Talent. We’ll see, I guess, if they continue their magic theme in future appearances.

Shin Lim Tries To Fool P&T Again

Posted by Michael on May 22nd, 2020

We went looking for two time America’s Got Talent champ Shin Lim to remind everyone AGT returns next Tuesday. His latest post is his appearance on Penn & Teller: Try This At Home. He has, of course, fooled the boys a couple of times… So serious question: Is Shin Lim the undisputed king of TV competition magic? If not, why not? Who can rival his record?

So, this is a holiday weekend in the US… and we are taking off early. Plenty of magic for y’all to catch over the weekend with Masters of Illusion, Magic Caught On Camera and Street Magic all on in most markets over the next coupe of days. Plus, don’t forget Greg Frewin and Liberty@Home performances on YouTube (not to mention plenty of others). We’ll see you Tuesday!

Dania Diaz joined Marc Spelmann as the two magic acts on last night’s semi-final round of America’s Got Talent: The Champions. Neither the viewers or judges decide who goes through at this point on the show; the rather nebulous group of “superfans” is in control and they were not in a mood to put any magicians through last night.
