On Tuesday, December 23, Syfy will present a season one marathon of Wizard Wars from 6PM to 12AM. Wizard Wars returns Thursday, January 29 at 10PM.
Wizard Wars is a reality competition show in which teams of magicians create and perform original magic routines before a live studio audience. Their acts are judged on creativity, deception, and showmanship. Vegas headliners Penn & Teller head up the judging panel, alongside magic critic Christen Gerhart and World Champion of Magic Jason Latimer. Wizard Wars also features four “home team” magicians—the “Wizards”—who return every week to take on new teams of “challengers.” Wizards include street magician Justin Flom, stage illusionist David Shimshi, mentalist Angela Funovitz, and con man Gregory Wilson.
