His "Oprah Meets ..." special from 1995-ish was excellent.

All he needed to do was jump up and down on the couch :)

Don't know if it made the show cut, Ryan, but you can view a clip of it on Oprah's website.

The book test was an online-only "bonus" clip.

I wasn't crazy about the book test. That's not to say I don't think it was effective it a cooler. It was. The presentation just felt lackluster. The same old "when I was a little boy...".
I just kept thinking how dynamic the exact same book test would be in the hands of Derren Brown.

Those links only work in the US, hopefully the clips will show up elsewhere eventually.

Uh, my comment above should read "That's not to say I don't think it was effective or a fooler". Seems I was the victim of auto-correct.

Thanks Brendan. There were also a couple of online-only clips on the Oprah site, he performed a booktest. They're watchable only in the US, unless you use a proxy.

Anyone else surprised that he didn't actually do any magic with Oprah in the broadcast version? On the Oprah show proper in the 90s he did Air Coppers, Haunted Table and The Fan, from memory.
