Strangest match ever - Jarrett + Raja + Hooters Casino

Postby CraigMitchell » January 25th, 2017, 1:41 am

Because guests who frequent Hooters will definitely want to see a Jarret & Raja magic show

And then a tragically bad promo video which more closely resembles Burt Wonderstone

It's 2017 ... how is it still possible that a magician in a bow tie manages to appear on a Las Vegas stage ?

My nephew says that bow ties are becoming somewhat fashionable in the young hipster set. (but never clip-ons, which are not cool.)

For what it's worth, Raja (the one wearing the bow tie) is not a magician. but a Julliard trained pianist. Jarrett (sans tie) is the magician.

I think there's a fair amount of winking and self-aware irony in the video.

Congrats to Jarrett and Raja, the real work is just starting but I love seeing people living their dreams. Wishing them lots of success!

Oh, sure, put one more roadblock in the way of those of us who are trying to be cool, why don't you.

LVRJ reviews the show ...

https://www.reviewjournal.com/entertain ... -of-vegas/

" So it’s no surprise to find slick showmanship even in the near-desperate setting of this low-ceilinged, second-floor banquet room ... But the collective effort seems dated, a tough fit for today’s Strip, even beyond the venue. This polished, family-friendly act might have cleaned up as an afternoon show back when Rick Thomas and Dirk Arthur were mainstays. But now? ... Unless the duo are simply angling to move to a more conventional theater, they may just need time to adapt. Take a deep breath and loosen the reins on a show that’s too scripted for its surroundings."
