As audience members, we only see the glamorous side of being a professional magician: commanding a stage with charisma and brilliance. But the reality of being on the road and working in a different theater every night doesn’t have the same sheen, as you can see in a vlog from Alex McAleer.

The mentalist is currently touring the UK as part of the Champions of Magic stage show. His first video goes behind the scenes of the production with a big dose of McAleer’s dry British humor. The vlog also includes a surprising amount of insight into the dietary habits of Sam Strange, who is also on the Champions of Magic tour as half of the gonzo Young & Strange duo.
