The (Virtual) Magic Duel  
Live Online The (Virtual) Magic Duel
 
The Magic Duel is launching a live, streaming version. After 5 years of highly rated live shows, this 60-minute, virtual performance will soon pit magical boomer Mark Phillips against conjuring zoomer Ryan Phillips in a duel for the title of DC's Best Magician. More than a magic show featuring 2 world class magicians, the Magic Duel is part AGT, part Survivor and part Top Chef (without the yelling or the food). Delivered directly to your living room, this live, streaming conjuring competition lets audience members choose the challenges, judge each magician's efforts, and vote for their favorite! Audience members can purchase participant tickets to interact directly with the performers via Skype, making decisions that affect the outcome of tricks or having their minds read remotely and in real time! In addition, the format of a virtual show means most of the magic performed will be skill based sleight-of-hand popularized by stars of magic like Shin Lim.
