This clip is really fun to watch because it really serves as a half performance/half award acceptance speech for Doug.
First up, is the classic “Sands of Egypt” illusion with actress Lee Meriwether (Time Tunnel, Batman) serving as Doug’s assistant. This classic illusion is a firm fan favorite, and Doug’s natural onstage delivery with it never seems to get old with time.
Lastly, now I’m not sure what a “Georgie” award is, but Doug sure seems pleased to have received one. So, if anyone out there knows, please drop me a line. In the end, Doug’s gracious concluding speech serves as a perfect bookend to a very unique and charming clip.
