No. Heaaall no. I also hate:

Ventriloquists
Mimes
Clowns
I might watch a shirtless hot-guy juggle, but he'd better be good.

I like Lance Burton. Unfortunately, these days the only way you'll see him is at his theater in Las Vegas.

Went to see a comedian hynpotist. He was hilarious and amazing at the same time.

Saw David copperfield 15 or so years ago. Also a great show.

I saw Copperfield 2 times once in Vegas and once in Atlanta and both times were great. You can't have magic on TV it comes off as a camera trick but when you see it in person and the magician/illusionist makes a person disappear right in front of you or a car appear in mid air, then your wow'd. But you have to like magic first.

I always want to know how it's done, I don't mind being surprised at first but then I want to know how the "magic" works. They don't explain it (naturally) so I really don't enjoy it.
There was a TV show where they explained how some tricks were done, that was good.

I actually enjoy LIVE magic acts....but not so much on television. It just loses something when you don't see it in real.

I would like those things if I knew they were real. But since they are most likely only tricks, I couldn't care less.

I subscribe to that, especially clowns, most of them are outright annoying.
