Magicians: Life in the Impossible

Synopsis: "MAGICIANS follows four world-class magicians on stage and off, exploring how and why these characters so passionately dedicate their lives to the craft of illusion. Their journey takes us from the most humbling of road gigs to grand performances on the biggest of stages, from finding love to terrible personal loss; and to the prospect of losing everything for a dream others don't understand. As we come to understand why each is obsessively chasing his own dream, we'll discover the unhidden secret: far more fascinating than the magic are the magicians themselves."

my favorite performance

that I've ever done

Was performing

for johnny carson

on "the tonight show."

I think johnny's favorite

trick that I did

Was one that I invented,

the sweet 'n' low trick.

It involves somebody

taking a bill and tearing off

the serial number

So they can

identify it later.

And then I light

the bill on fire,

- ay, yi, yi.

the entire time.

Make sure it's the same.

I do not believe

what I'm seeing.

-Are you guys ready

for some magic?

-Of course.

Can I scoot in here,

so you can all have

a good vantage point?

Somebody have a bill,

like a 20, a 50, a 100?

Write your initials

on jackson's forehead,

So now I can't

switch the bill.

You guys may have

seen me do this one

on "the tonight show."

I did it on "the tonight show,"

both for johnny and for jay.

We're gonna fold this back

into itself, light it.

It's a bill inside,

slightly burned.

Got your initials.

is that cool?

Want me to take this home

and dispose of it?

Appreciate that.

Thank you.

Did you have a dog

when you were little?

- I did.

-Okay, think of it.

When I came over here,

I brought a little dog with me.

It's a little stuffed dog,

and the collar of the dog,

In little beads,

it spells out a name.

If it matches the name of
