Singapore’s premier illusionists J C Sum & ‘Magic Babe’ Ning will be appearing on this week’s episode of Asia Uncut (Episode 10). Besides chatting with host Jon Niermann, the magic duo will be showcasing their unique brand of “urban illusions in the city”.
Asia Uncut airs on Asia’s largest regional network Star World that reaches over 200 million viewers. The talk show is the first one-shot mainstream avenue to reach the majority of English speaking people in Asia on an entertainment network.
