Dan White Can’t Stop Messing With The Roots

Posted by Michael on October 16th, 2018

Magicians appearing on NBC have an advantage over all magic acts on TV because NBC employs the two greatest audiences for magicians: Mel B on America’s Got Talent and The Roots on The Tonight Show. Dan White returned to The Tonight Show recently more or less just to continue his long running torment of Questlove. We don’t even think he was on the show… he just turned up to perform for The Roots backstage.

Seriously, The Roots React To Magic is a special waiting to happen!

Jason Bird On Masters Of Illusion

Are you missing Masters Of Illusion and Penn & Teller: Fool Us yet? Yeah, us too.

Luckily, Jason Bird posted one of his appearances on this season of Masters Of Illusion… and, of course, you can check out full episodes of both shows on the official CW site.

A Little Extra From The Road Trick

Posted by Michael on October 10th, 2018

Ollek Media posted this deleted scene from Adam Trent’s The Road Trick recently on its Vimeo page, which has at least one more bit from the show.

I really enjoyed The Road Trick, by the way. Some of the folks involved with it were vets of Dirty Jobs and it reminded of the good clean fun of that Mike Rowe series. My wife, who hates magic like small children hate spinach and broccoli, even watched it!

97 Year Old Japanese Magician

Posted by Michael on October 5th, 2018

For this Video Friday we are going to present a couple longer videos… including this extended clip from a Japanese show called Knight Scoop which is kind of a nutty version of the old US show Real People. We aren’t sure who is actually being presented in this because the translation drops out (the subtitles say “Mr. ???”) but it is subtitled so you can follow along with this video from circa 2007.

Marc Spelmann On ITV’s This Morning

Posted by Michael on October 1st, 2018

Britain’s Got Talent stand out Marc Spelmann dropped by the set of ITV’s This Morning to perform a little magic with the help of his two year old daughter Isabella. Marc and his wife Tessa, as you may recall, have been very public with their fertility struggle and then Tessa’s cancer diagnosis. Marc spoke more about this in a second segment, which you can see on This Morning’s YouTube page.
