Very fun family show!
17 August 2016 | by kakuraffeSee all my reviews

Camera tricks and editing? Wrong. Michael is not only skilled at some really interesting and fun slight-of-hand that are just hilarious to watch. I never liked magician shows, Chris Angel and others like him just came off as monotone and really boring. But this show is not only incredibly funny but you can tell he put such though into all his work. The negative reviews seem to miss that point completely. I'm really glad I found this show and love watching it with my family. As I need more space, I guess I'll go into the fun fact that I got to meet him once and he's a very sweet guy and that's what I think we need more of instead of disgusting humor that isn't really funny anymore. You can only do so much. This show breaks to clean humor and trickery that has the audience and his "victims" laughing at the end.
