      *** The Ultimate Fake - Jamy Ian Swiss
      An evening of laughs, gasps, and inexplicable mystery!
      If there were such a thing a psychic powers, it would have to look like
      this. Jamy Ian Swiss performs an evening of chilling, inexplicable "mind
      -- accomplished entirely with "slight of mind". Come see for yourself how
      five ordinary senses can convince you that somehow, someway, there must be
      a sixth!

      *** And the Ultimate Real Deal - Todd Robbins
      One of the last practitioners of a quintessentially American art form --
      the side show -- Todd Robins brings us face to face with an oddly
      beautiful mixture of real-life human marvels and classic carnival magic.
