Tune into Canada's Got Talent on CityTV tomorrow night to watch Atsushi compete in the live finale!


From the May 12th article "How Calgary magician Atsushi Ono wowed his way to the season finale of Canada's Got Talent" by Eric Volmers in the Calgary Herald

They are going to make me even funnier or make me cool or whatever.”
