View Full Version : Mondo Magic

A & E is running a show called "Mondo Magic." It features magic performed on the street, in bars, and the like.
I have to say that, after seeing two of the episodes, I was not all that impressed.

That title sounds familiar, but I do not know if I have seen it before.
The best street magic I have seen on television is Urban Magic with David Acer.

Some of the stuff is all right, but some of it is weak, some of it is almost painful to watch. There seems to be quite a bit of reliance upon gimmicked items, and less reliance on skill... but occasionally Korn does a few moves that look pretty polished.
The guys have shot episodes, in New Orleans, Boston and Washington. I don't know if or when any future episodes will be aired.
