Are “Danger Acts” Magic?

Posted by Michael on January 21st, 2020

Miki Dark made an appearance on last night’s edition of America’s Got Talent: The Champions, although he did not do well enough in the judgement of the “superfans” to proceed to the next round. While acts of this variety have been branded “danger acts” on the modern variety competition shows, around iTricks Tower Midwest we see these as an off-shoot of magic, much like escapology is related to magic. Even though we see danger acts as a member of the overall family of magic arts we are the first to admit we do not always share the “danger act” clips from these shows. It kind of depends on the act… when it comes to magic we kind of apply our own Potter Stewart test to it!

However, if anyone wants to argue this is not the case and all danger acts should be excluded from iTricks we would be interested in your reasoning.
