Eschewing cheap gimmicks and camera trickery, Wondershow brings renowned touring magicians together for an evening of underground astonishment, bolstered by international superstars and top-shelf variety acts. Brooklyn-based charlatan Vinny DePonto wows with his sleight of hand and mind-reading abilities, and late-night TV regular Jonathan Burns shows off feats of flexibility that have enabled him travel to six countries inside other people's luggage. Also appearing is Asi Wind, winner of the Merlin Award for "Most Innovative Show"–an honor whose previous recipients include Penn & Teller, Criss Angel, and David Copperfield. In addition to keeping a busy schedule of shows and upscale private events, Asi is also serving as an advisor to an upcoming David Blaine TV special. David F. Slone ESQ emcees the night's proceedings, instructing the audience how much to loosen their collars for face-melting routines by "The Prima Ballerina of Burlesque" Aurora Black.
