According to the show description for this Thursday’s episode, Ellen saw a video of Eric Ross doing a trick. She was so impressed that she had to get him on the show. Ross, creator of Rizer, Election and Conspiracy, will perform and hopefully get to hobnob with Amy Poehler during the taping for Thursday’s show.
This is a major score: Ellen has a great reputation for featuring magicians and treating them well. Check your local listings for airtimes. And check back later in the week, when Eric will dish to us what it was like behind the scenes.
