Some shows are polished and refined. Others are Amazeballs. Eric Dittelman's open mic style playground for magicians, standup comedians, and variety arts acts plays monthly at The Creek & The Cave in Long Island City. It's raunchy and unpredictable, and a total treat to get to see some incredible professional magicians working out new ideas, raw material, and in the works routines live on stage. In this feature for Genii Online, I spoke to Dittelman and some other Amazeballs performers about the importance of a friendly room, the power of live theater, and proving there are a lot of different ways to make magic.
