Check Out: Scambushed!


If you get the chance, please check this out. My pal — and dazzling magician — Gregory Wilson stars in a new show called Scambushed! It debuts on the Travel channel Sunday, December 29th, two pilots running back to back. Greg and his team of grifters pull scams on people, capture them on hidden cameras, and show you how to avoid getting caught by the pros.

Greg — the guy with the beard on your left — is, as befits someone who knows me, a thoroughly disreputable individual who can, as far as I can tell, pick your pocket from across the room. I’ve caught his show at the Magic Castle and I’m still trying to get him to give me my watch back. I’ve set my DVR to pick this up. I hope you will too. The trailer looks very cool.
