Daily WOW: Kyle Eschen magic act is pure genius

The Daily Catch - published on 07/25/16

Last week, Penn and Teller had magician Kyle Eschen on their show Fool Us. His magic was not overly stimulating and he did not fool Penn or Teller, but he was still captivating from the moment he took the stage:

His dry wit and awkward demeanor, which at times has a Norman Bates quality, turn a magic show into a comedy act that would have had Steven Wright clutching his side. Heck, he even got famously silent Teller to lol. The most impressive part of Eschen is that he’s been performing consistently funny acts since he was 15:

We can’t wait to see where Kyle’s career will take him after this success, but until then we say WOW.
