You may know Harrison Greenbaum from his Genii column or his TV appearances on shows such as Last Comic Standing. He sent us the first trailer from his new special What Just Happened? and, well, it is just a little bit different than other specials. First of all, it hasn’t actually been shot yet. Honestly, it is not terribly unusual for a project to have advance promotion even before being completed. The second thing is that nobody has actually asked him to do this special… you can follow his efforts to get his own special at his blog I Want A Netflix Special (But Seeso Or Amazon Is Cool, Too). There are even a couple of really easy things you can do to help Harrison achieve his dream… Help him achieve his dream of a Netflix special, people!
This is the opening (or at least one of them) for The Sooty Show. Chances are lots of iTricksters will not be familiar with the little yellow magic wand wielding sock puppet (‘specially if you are not British) but the show has had a few incarnations and run since the mid-1950s. So why is any of this on iTricks? According to a post I caught sight of on Twitter (and now can’t find) and this Warrington Guardian article, Sooty is the first bear and the first non-human ever to be inducted into the famed Magic Circle!
Jon Dorenbos hits iTricks because of his magic, but he still is a football player by day. The Ellen Show sent him to the Super Bowl this weekend with the show’s executive producer to… well, goof around mainly. There is magic, NFL greats and lots of rear end slapping.
You’ll notice that Jon is still in a cast; hopefully he will get better soon.
From what I can tell, this video is from some kind of Japanese reality show pitting Chinese magicians against Japanese magicians. It has been edited down by Michael Lam to showcase his highlights (which is understandable; plus, he is the guy who posted it to Vimeo). Even though it is mainly in Japanese, it is interesting to watch just to see how quickly some of the trends from US magic are making it overseas.
Somehow while I was really sick (instead of just kind of sick like now) I missed Oz Pearlman appearing on the TODAY Show. He didn’t make a Super Bowl prediction last week to be revealed after the game like many mentalists. Instead, here is an appearance from January 26 that includes a successful Super Bowl prediction!
Haven’t seen a new Justin Flom video in a bit… until he turned up The Rachel Ray Show this week to help a young man propose to his girlfriend. You can read a little more about the couple on the show’s website.
