Asia trip, Winning “Wizard Wars” and performances in Las Vegas

——————————————————————————————–

What a month February was for us! We spent the beginning of the month in Japan & Thailand and the trip was amazing. We’d racked up a lot of frequent flier miles traveling for the show all of these years, and we decided to use some miles for a special trip since I’d always wanted to visit Southeast Asia. We had one day of exploring in Tokyo & Narita, Japan and then 2 weeks in Thailand with stops in Bangkok, Chiang Mai & Phuket. The entire trip was incredible and I will be posting photos and video from our adventures on my Youtube travel channel and my travel blog. The photo collage below shows some of the highlights of our trip!

Asia

While we were over in Asia, our episode of “Wizard Wars” aired on the SyFy channel back in the US! What amazing experience that was, creating magic with random objects and competing against other magicians on national television. In the end we won both rounds, fooled the judges – including Penn & Teller – with an original magic effect and took home the $10,000 grand prize! We got lots of great press for our win on Wizard Wars, including articles in VegasNews.com and on VegasChatter.com. If you missed our episode – “Silly Rabbits” – you can view it on demand on SyFy.com/wizardwars or download it on iTunes. Stay tuned for another blog talking about what it was like creating and performing magic under such pressure, with a look behind the scenes!

Also this month we performed at Wonderground, a show featuring magic and variety performances each month in Las Vegas. It’s always a fun scene, especially with so many magic industry friends in the audience. We even got a chance to try out a brand new magic effect with an egg, inspired by our winning routine on Wizard Wars.

If this month wasn’t busy enough for us, we also did an interview and performance on Channel 13 KTNV “The Morning Blend” here in Las Vegas. To view the full segment and see us performing some brand new magic, click on the link below the photo.

 Around Valentine’s Day we were also featured on CNN.com in an article called “SoulMate Stories” and the story of how we met was featured in the February issue of MAGIC Magazine, the largest publication for the magic industry. For now we’re enjoying being home in Las Vegas for a few more weeks before we head back to Disney Cruise Line to headline on Disney Wonder in the Caribbean & Bahamas this spring!
