Ever break out of a box, when two giant metal saws are spinning toward you? Or lie on a bed while swords drop from the ceiling? That's all in a night's work for Jan Rouven
. The German magician brings his act to Las Vegas's Clarion Casino. A mix of Houdini-style tricks and goth music videos, Rouven's act earned him "Magician of the Year" in 2004 (the same award given to David Copperfield and Siegfried and Roy). Jan Rouven talks about evading "death traps," how he first discovered magic, language barriers, and how to appeal to American audiences.
