Harry Anderson (Dave's World, Night Court) performs his stand-up magic act for a packed house in this Showtime special. The self proclaimed braggart, scoundrel and thief cons friends and the audience in a hilarious and mesmerizing stage performance. Harry Anderson shows his true gift, the slick smile and sharp words as he performs some of his most famous magic routines. He insults the audience while taking their money, he sticks a needle through his arm and the finale is the age old three card monte with a twist, the cards are two feet tall! This is a unique performance, its fun and fast. The con man segments that break the routine into small segments are fun games, though if you've seen Harry perform on "Cheers", you've seen them before. A fun cameo from John Laroquette comes towards the end. Be sure to stick around for Harry's exit from the club where he lifts a line from "Guys & Dolls", and goes one better by actually performing the silly warning/miracle on the street outside the club. Catch this one on video if you can, it's worth it!
