Every once in a while, our team or orange county casino party crazies known as Aces Casino run into someone at one of our events that really entertains us. It's always been said about our casino party company that we're easily amused, but not easily impressed.
Well, last week, after our latest event over at Catal Restaurant, which is located inside the world-famous Downtown Disney section in Anaheim, you can officially consider us BOTH.
Reason? Well, he's known as the "Fantastic Fig," a magician and psychic that, after looking at him for a moment, reminded me of someone that I had seen on television not too long ago. Then, when Mr. "Fantastic" )who is known to many of his friends in Beverly Hills as Mr. Paul Fegen) produced his trusty cat, "Newton," it hit me.
"America's Got Talent!"
He's the magician that was on the show last year, who advanced to the second round of competition in Las Vegas, a man who charmed everyone at that TV show last year. And, a man who not only charmed the panel of 3 judges during his appearance that day, but thoroughly shocked them with his magical touch.
Well, if you know ME, you KNOW that I'M not easy to impress, especially when it comes to magic. I've studied under some of the best card mechanics in the biz. Let's see just how "Fantastic" Mr. Fegen is....
Wow. Just. Wow.
OK... For reference, let's first show you what "The Fantastic Fig" did to wow the AGT judges on his TV appearance on the popular NBC-TV talent show last season...
Unless the film and vids burst into flame, of course.
