Great idea!
6 July 2014 | by kellyhostetterSee all my reviews

This show cracks me up. I typically prefer the raunchier shows, but this is hilarious while safe to watch with the whole family. Michael is amazing! "Oh yea, that's just a dealer window." Michael performs magic without telling the participants. Then he comes up with hilarious explanations for what happened, while the participants try to wrap their minds around what they just saw. Michael is charming and not too hard on the eyes either. Most episodes center around some sort of shop or office, and michael pretends to be an employee and confuses and amazes unsuspecting customers or coworkers. Do yourself a favor, and start recording this show. It can be watched out of sequence, so no need to worry about catching up first!
