They all did an exceptional job on the script and the direction was superb. Brown was able to touch his viewers on an emotional level, and he incorporated them in his live demonstrations, which made it even more appealing, spontaneous and compelling.
Brown is a true force to be reckoned with in the contemporary magic and mentalism scene. It is gripping, clever, witty, and thoroughly entertaining.
