Danny and Debbie, the onstage stars of “Squawk! The Show,” have been together for more than 20 years, ever since Danny hatched. Danny, a green and red mitred conure parrot, shares top avian billing with Roxanne, the famous painting parrot. Onstage, Danny and Roxanne team up with other exotic birds as Debbie cues them to count out loud, do simple math, and even read minds. Recently, during a live, national-broadcast audition on America’s Got Talent, Debbie and Danny wowed a crowd by barking like dogs, clucking like chickens, and volleying comedic banter back and forth like seasoned pros. At the end, none of the judges flashed their ominous red “X” over the stage, and the usually somber Piers Morgan gave them a standing ovation, a gesture the talk-show host typically reserves for celebrities who can bark on command.
Kyle Marlett, the comedian mastermind in “It’s Tricky” and currently The Original Nerd of Magic, headlines an act with a repertoire of card tricks, optical illusions, and unnerving nostril tricks, which earned him a fancy meal when he hammered a screwdriver into his nose for Jay Leno. The steel-schnozzed spellbinder is a lifelong lover of Charlie Chaplin: his tattoo of the silent great dovetails with his onstage tributes to classic slapstick, from staging mute, gestural tricks to getting digitally remastered before each show. Marlett never lets up his easygoing banter, even as playing cards self-replicate, water bottles spontaneously change color, and dental floss explores uncharted facial territory.
