From baffling people on the street to orchestrating elaborate tricks, Justin Willman blends good-natured magic with grown-up laughs.
The six half-hour episodes are Netflix’s first original foray into the magic space. The comedic docu-series follows the funny and likable Willman as he brings his skills as a magician to the strange and misunderstood subcultures of America.
“I’ve dreamt of having my own Netflix series since the early ’90s,” Willman said. “I’m hoping to make a mind-blowing magic show that also happens to be very funny. If in the process we learn something new about the human condition, I’ll consider that a bonus.”
Willman is coming off his Fake Believe stand-up tour of the U.S. and his Comedy Central half-hour special Sleight of Mouth with Justin Willman. A frequent guest on The Tonight Show, Ellen, Conan and Comedy Central’s @Midnight with Chris Hardwick and The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, he has hosted a number of unscripted/game shows including Cupcake Wars on Food Network and Win, Lose or Draw on Disney Channel.
