Daniel Donohue and Eric Siegel were the hottest double act in Chicago—until their rockstar lifestyle forced Eric into early retirement. After several years apart, the two will try to reignite the magic. Don't miss the show one suburban mom called “COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE FOR MY SON'S BIRTHDAY!” Illusionists…they will conjure cards, coins, condoms, and malt liquor. Escape artists…they will bravely elude death—and the LAPD. Mind readers…they will expose the adulterers and alcoholics. (It's them.) “IT'S A BASIC CABLE MAGIC SHOW WITH A PREMIUM CABLE EDGE!”

The magic tricks are fun and pulled off with only a modest gusto — kudos to them for never making a big deal out of any of their own tricks — whether they're telling a story with a deck of cards, making rewarding use of a girl popping out of a box, or making an entire bottle of rum disappear (gosh, I hope that was a trick). But the magic is almost secondary to their comic repartee as adversaries. The jokes keep coming and never stop. Sometimes they're funny; other times, they're funny and clever, too...Highly Recommended

They perform some great tricks throughout the show and one card story that will make you realize just how good they really are. I want to see more of these guys in the future. Hopefully Eric won't corrupt Daniel too bad going forward.

The skill on display is amazing! I loved watching these guys as a team. Definitely, I want to see these guys again, I had a blast watching this show.

Cleverly weaving prestidigitation into a comedic storyline, The New Bad Boys of Magic is certainly one of the first shows that can describe itself as a “relationship comedy with magic.” It's a great concept, and Donohue and Siegel have both the comic and magical chops to pull it off.
