A What's Up? Weekend 04/13/17

Anti-Conjuror Dan Sperry of The Illusionists Causes Pure Mayhem

Magician Dan Sperry, a Minnesota native, became one of the top-10 most googled names after a legendary performance on America’s Got Talent in 2010, leading Judge Howie Mandel to run from his seat. For his act, the self-described Anti-Conjuror swallowed a Lifesavers candy and, with some dental floss, proceeded to cut through his own throat, and then pull out the perfectly pieced together Lifesaver.

Sperry, with his unique style, gives the audience a suspenseful, sitting at the edge of their seat, jaw dropping performance. It’s pure mayhem!

Don’t miss the astounding performances by the world’s best-selling magic show, The Illusionists, on Thursday, April 20th, 7:30 p.m. at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center. Tickets range from $52–72.
