Oh my gosh, you do NOT want to skip Piff the Magic Dragon! I saw his show in Las Vegas last year, it is one of the funniest one-man magic shows I've seen - right up there with Harry Anderson and Mac King. (I think Amazing Jonathan was funny, but not really a magic show.)

I dunno Jeff. Is "Piff's" show/character substantially better/funnier than what we saw on P&T's Fool Us show? Because that left me really cold. Actively kinda hated it.

Well, the character's the same. He's a grumpy British guy dressed in a silly costume. Thought I found live his material is much better and well extremely well-thought-out, where the stuff he did on TV is good but not on the same level.
