Wayne Houchin's work as a performance artist, magician, and dare-devil has made him one of the most popular and exciting mystery entertainers in the world. He has performed in more than 30 countries, appeared on NBC’s Today Show, headlined the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, and he made history in the Dominican Republic by stopping time during a live, nationally televised stunt.
Houchin currently stars in the Discovery Channel's "Breaking Magic: The Magic of Science" which has been watched by more than 100 million people worldwide. The second season has aired nearly everywhere but in the U.S. It is unknown when it will be broadcast here though they are in pre-production of the third season.
Wayne has been on a 30 city lecture tour of the U.S. bringing in large numbers of attendees who are fans or immediately became fans after seeing him perform and teach some of his original, signature effects. He entitled his tour the "No Blessings" Tour because he does not want a repeat of the "fire blessing" he received in the Dominican Republic in 2012.
In this podcast, Wayne talks about his work with the Discovery Channel and the success the show has experienced. He also discusses how different it is to perform magic on television and what you should consider before the cameras start rolling.
At time stamp 00:19:38 Wayne talks about his surreal experience during a live morning show in the Dominican Republic when a bowl of flaming oil was poured over his head. He talks about his horrific experience, his surreal ride to the hospital from the TV station, what happened in the two hospitals, his road to recovery and the status of the lawsuit.
