Was Wondering if anyone saw the "Magicians" last night on Craig Ferguson. They were so bad, I don't even know where to begin. What did you guys think?

No that wasn't it. It was sort of a Twilight Zone Flashback to the 1970's. The one guy had a shirt he wore from like 1971 and he did a Zombie ball routine and for the first 15 seconds his partner?? did something I can't even describe. The whole segment was like 94 seconds long. I can honestly say it was the worst piece of Magic?? that I have seen in my life. I Tivo'd the segment just to make sure I wasn't having a nightmare. Before they came on, Craig said they had an upcoming show at a hotel in Vegas in the fall. "The Horror" Leave NOW!! The call's coming from inside the house......

I think we can say with confidence that Jamy will not be doing the Zombie.

Wow. That was brilliant! The poofy (sic) shirt chap looked like a young Oliver Reed.

Larry and Rafael are there names. They have a big illusion show opening at the Hilton in Vegas. I think they have a website, and they might be hooked up with Siegfried and Roy in some way.

Yes, "hooked up with" is the correct phrase, I think.

Any reviews or feedback on his appearance?

A website? Indeed they do. And what a cracker it is:

This Ferguson kid is really unfamiliar with the proper way to showcase a magician. He actually spoke to the guest and let him show he is a human with a personality? Shocking stuff.

In all seriousness loved Jamy's performance

Jamy was great -- his decision NOT to do the Zombie routine was sound.

He did bold effects that will leave the imitative duffers in the dust. It was good to see a master. He may have been a bit nervous but it came across as good energy.

Bob, he could have used a puffy shirt. Just sayin'.

Bravo Jamy, great performance, and the first (recently) in which the magician had an actual dialogue, if not a conversation, on a talk show. What a concept. It was nice to see someone treat the host like an average enthusiastic layman, and the magic as if it naturally deserved to be on television.

And of course, Mr. Ferguson's card choices were sweet. I guess Vernon's claim that for some strange reason, nobody picks the nine of diamonds just isn't true anymore. :)

Very nice for a change, this whole suddenly-developed style of sitting next to the hosts desk and just working.

The best I've ever seen Jamy!

Convincing proof that card magic can be as exciting a genre as any we have. Jamy was wonderful!

I watched Jamy's clip and he did a great job. It seems like Jamy had planned on ending with the card to pocket watch but actually got a two trick encore. I think even Jamy was surprised but that was a great segment and a lot of fun to watch.

Let us recall that for a Scot, historically the Nine of Diamonds is not your ordinary card.

And yes, Jamy kicked ass. :)

It's the best I've ever seen Swiss. Normally he's hard to like, but he seems to have mellowed.
