'David and Leeman: How to Convincingly Fake Honesty' is a great time all-around. The banter between the two and the audience is quick-paced, the comedic moments have great timing, and the magic is well-performed and highly entertaining. It's well worth the ticket price, and I expect that I will probably go again because the entertainment value was so high.... full review

Great show, it was fast-paced, energetic and engaging. Both David and Leeman were funny and very good at interacting with the audience. There did not seem a point where their energy or excitement to entertain was diminished. Great show for a group of friends.... full review

***This review first appeared in LA Weekly*** For their slick and comical magic show David & Leeman: How to Convincingly Fake Honesty, our two card sharps pour forth a constant stream of smooth patter that is as perfectly timed as their split-second feats of prestidigitation, dexterous legerdemain, sleight-of-hand card tricks and stunts (they explain the difference), sight gags and silly bits of comedy. Frequently calling on the audience to participate, they delight with a series of miraculous routines. The three loose acts include a Dada-inspired entre'acte, and the swift 45-minute show concludes with an elaborate tribute to the charlatan spiritualists who spooked the early 19th century.
