Nate Bargatze's father is a magician, and Nate was always excited to help out as an assistant at his shows. But, as he would later learn, not all magical assistants are created equal, and some are better than others at keeping the mystery alive, and not everyone is invited back for an encore.
Nate Bargatze is a comic who's appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. His one-hour stand-up special, Full Time Magic, was recently broadcast on Comedy Central.
