Nice kid: bad tricks
In a show about magic, I was expecting something more along the lines of David Blaine performing a lot of magic. The tricks are few and far between, taking a backseat to the awkward social interactions that the star has with the locals. Adam is very charming in a sort of bumbling way but he is not a great magician. His sleight of hand was painful to watch and oftentimes the secrets themselves were blatantly obvious, even when performing tricks only for the camera that could perfected with better angles or another take. He should stick to Broadway shows where the size and scope and effects distract from his lack of talent.
