Did You Know?


The Successor (also known as The Next Uri Geller) is an Israeli television competition program in which contestants perform acts of mentalism, illusion, escapism, and other feats before a live studio audience. The acts are judged by a panel, with votes from the studio audience and viewers at home. The original program was created by Uri Geller in 2007 for Israeli television, with Geller also acting as one of the judges on the show.

The program was subsequently remade in the United States under the title, "Phenomenon," co-hosted by illusionist Criss Angel. Versions also aired in Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary, Greece, Turkey, and Russia. The program has been televised in multiple countries worldwide, including Canada, Latin America, Australia, and Finland. See more »

Worse Illusion Show Ever
15 August 2009 | by BlackaceSee all my reviews

The only good thing about the show was having Criss Angel and Uri Gellar calling out the would be magicians on their poor attempts to deceive them. The best episode was when Criss Angel told one guy that he was a phony and was going to bet him money to prove it. The guy obviously didn't bite, but was eventually sent packing. Out of the mentalist (illusionist) on the show, only two of them were really any good. The rest were either terrible, boring or just not fun to watch. Obviously the show has been cancelled, and I can understand why. I didn't understand why they needed celebrities there to assist them. They could have just picked anyone from the audience. Maybe if Uri or Criss had performed some tricks of their own it might have been more interesting. Thankfully this will never see the light of day on DVD. If you missed it, be happy you did.
