Funny And Entertaining For The Whole Family
24 April 2016 | by gripper2See all my reviews

This show has some great entertainment value. It is appropriate for all ages and all ages will enjoy it. As some negative reviews suggest, there may be some cutaways, but I'm sure that it is only so the audience sees things happen as the victim saw them so they can be just as amazed. I believe the reactions are real to the same tricks that we see. There may be some editing to enhance certain acts for the audience or cut out parts where the victim may have been distracted so he can make a switch, but they are still tricked into believing what they saw. If you are turned off by a show that does things that you know are not possible, then you probably shouldn't watch any show featuring a magician or illusionist, but if you enjoy a show in which real people have real reactions to impossible things happening before their eyes, then you'll enjoy this show. You can be sure that it took many attempts to fool someone for each trick, but most saw right through it. It's only the few that didn't catch on that made it on the air.
