MEET THE EVASONS---THEY READ A LOT OF MINDS IN WASHINGTON, D.C. BUT CAN THEY FOOL PENN AND TELLER?
TORONTO,Ont--(Sept.1) The Evasons are a Toronto couple who make a good
living reading the minds of corporate and political leaders on the U.S.
On Wednesday, Sept.7, at 8pm.ET,
they will challenge the famous Las Vegas magical duo on Penn and
Teller:Fool Us! the popular primetime series on the the CW Network.
Recognized as one of the world's top mentalism acts, The Evasons appear
to be part of an emerging trend which is bringing more magical and
visual entertainers to primetime TV audiences in the United States.
Network TV series like NBC's America's Got Talent, CW's Masters of
Illusion, and Penn and Teller:Fool Us! are introducing a greater number
of magical and visual entertainers to North American viewers. This, in
turn, has meant more exposure for Canadian magicians.
Why is this? Because Canadian magical entertainers are ranked among the
best in the world by other nations. The Evasons are known worldwide for
their second-sight act where a blindfolded Tessa describes in intimate
detail the personal items held up by members of the audience.
Although based in Toronto and Annapolis, Maryland (just outside
Washington,DC) Jeff and Tessa are in demand around the world as
entertainers for major corporate and international conventions.
Born in Toronto, Jeff met Tessa in the early 80s while hosting a fashion
show where she was a model. Tessa was working part-time while studying
at Ryerson University. They have been together since 1983.

NB. A great example of a Canadian magician appearing on a US network
primetime show was Winnipeg's Darcy Oake introducing guest artists from
The Illusionists (on Broadway) on the August 31 edition of America's Got
Talent. Among the other Canadian magicians appearing on US primetime
TV this summer were: Shawn Farquhar, Murray SawChuck, and Vitaly Beckman
(from Vancouver); Mahdi Gilbert, Neil Croswell, Ryan Joyce, and Matt DiSero (from Toronto); and world-champion magician, Greg Frewin, from Niagara Falls.
