Justin Willman will be performing live at the Landmark Comedy Works in Denver August 18–20. Willman, who has appeared on The Tonight Show, DRUNK HISTORY, and Chelsea Lately, is a magician who incorporates modern tech gadgets into his comedic magic tricks.
One recent example of his unique approach involved asking Siri to teach him a magic trick during his acclaimed Comedy Central special, Sleight of Mouth. As many iOS device users will tell you, Siri isn’t always . . . “accurate” when it comes to interpreting verbal commands. Playing on this possibility for misunderstanding, Willman tells Siri that he has a napkin and a banana, only to have Siri interpret banana as bandana and create a sleight of hand based on those items. The result is a tongue-in-cheek dig at Siri, a bit of physical comedy, and a great tech trick that leaves the audience amazed and laughing.
Denver Tech Entertainment at It’s Finest
As Arthur C. Clarke famously noted, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Willman turns this statement on its head, asking in his YouTube series Magic Meltdown, “In a world filled with endless technology, when you have everything — literally — at your fingertips, is there still magic?” Of course there is, and the magician/comedian launches a series of tricks and sleights of hand to prove his point, using technologies such as a Bic lighter, a computer mouse, and USB flash drives. In one trick, he even changes a Hummer into a Fiat 500!
