Netflix isn’t just a home for stand-up comedy specials and sitcoms that you’ve never heard of — it’s also been expanding into the world of magic and illusion for quite some time. That makes sense, because the recorded spectacle of magic is the same kind of date-night entertainment that the streaming service traffics in.
So when the upcoming street magician show Magic for Humans released its first trailer, we were already pretty excited.

Basically, this looks like a little compilation of street magic reaction videos all helmed by Justin Willman, whose amiability hopes to bolster the series.
He does close-up magic, transmogrifying money, summoning spiders, and making basically anything disappear — all with a joke and a smile. Think one of those late-night talk shows’ “man on the street” segments, but with more vanishing.
Magic for Humans launches on Aug. 17.
