Psychic Fail! What?! No! Say It Isn’t So!
I saw a clip linked on Facebook. It is excellent! It’s a great example of, in my opinion, cold reading by “psychic” Char Margolis. She fails tremendously! And my new hero, Larry Potash, calls her on it.
Click here to see the YouTube clip of the fail featured on WGN Morning News.
I also talked about “psychic” Char Margolis’ appearance on The Larry Sanders Show. It was in 1998 (I mistakenly said ’97 on the show) during season six. The episode called I Buried Sid had Char, as herself, being astoundingly psychic. Of course, Larry Sanders is fiction, so Char can be written as being so accurate.
Her real world appearance on WGN was much more reflective of reality in showing her fail miserably. At least, that’s what I think.
One of the few musicals I actually like. Sure, it may be the nostalgia thing, but I really enjoy movie. Maybe it’s mainly due to the fantastic, if somewhat scary, performance of Gene Wilder.
And I swear you see a chicken get its head chopped off.
I was right! Again! You do see a chicken get its head chopped of during the “freak out” boat ride. Follow this link and watch the 1:06 minute mark. And this was rated G!
