He makes people laugh by performing live in front of audiences and fans.
Act of Grace
Another finalist is Jon Dorenbos, the pro-footballer turned magician. Dorenbos has performed his magic act in Las Vegas and Hollywood. He amazed the judges when once he predicted what the four judges would draw, even before they drew it! Beat That!

And can anyone even attempt to do what contortionist Sofie Dossi does so easily? She can bend backwards and paint her toes and shoot arrows with her feet, as well! The Clairvoyants continue to confound everyone with their mind boggling mentalism acts. The mentalists from Austria have read minds and got everyone trying to decipher their secrets, and the judges are stumped everytime!
