Posted by Michael on May 31st, 2017

Indonesian escape artist Demian Aditya impressed the America’s Got Talent judges with his exciting and dangerous stunt on last night’s season premiere.

The Road Trick Mini-Review

Red Bull has released another clip of The Road Trick, which is available to watch or binge watch on Red Bull’s website and on demand channels. Having watched about half of the series so far, I can say that it is completely worth watching for any magic fan. Half travel show and half magic special, magician Adam Trent journeys through Europe trying to see if magic can transcend cultural differences. Directing the TV crew following Adam is Dirty Jobs veteran Dave Barsky and I personally found that The Road Trick has a kind of charm reminiscent of Dirty Jobs. It is great “rainy day” television; perfect for watching while you lay on the couch all afternoon.

This video is actually from March and I am not sure how we missed it (although that whole hospitalization/recovery period thing probably had something to do it) but it features Ryan Oakes’ appearance on Harry Connick Jr’s talk show Harry. You can always see more of Ryan over on his official website. For more of the HARRY show, check your local listings.
