I went to see a magic show, and what I found was a disheveled man in a dirty jacket making the kind of lame and unfunny racist jokes Tea Partiers email each other. Bit of a shame, as the things on the web about Mr. Lovell would lead you to believe he is/was a unique talent. His card-handling was messy and rushed, and it certainly felt as if he wasnt really present and didnt care about the show. I left feeling genuinely sorry for everyone in the audience who paid for a ticket, and for Mr. Lovell.
