Magic For Humans (Netflix) – Premieres 17th August
A comedy where in each episode magician Justin Willman performs tricks to members of the public that are all tied together with the theme of a human emotion.
In the show between doing quick magic tricks to passers by, Willman also performs some more elaborate tricks that either take inspiration from old psychological tests through to some more complex takes on street magic. As he performs the tricks there’s a fair amount of playful mocking going on, as well as some left field adult swim sounding segments like “Magic for Susans” which has a Tim & Eric feel with it’s jingle.
Altogether the show goes along at a decent pace, and the tricks performed are all entertaining, making it a surprisingly pleasant bit of viewing.
