I've always dreamedof being a magician.

And then I have slowly realizedthat that is impossible,

because the only professionalmagicians out there are male,

and the womenwho do magic are witches.

Hopefully,we've burned them.

But I am a woman.

[screams]

Why?

Why, why?!

[audience members cheer]

I thought...

[laughter]

"You got to do somethingto get into that magic world."

So I've been studyingmagician assistants.

And I thinkI've got it down.

So, I put togetheran audition,

and if there are any magiciansin the audience...

[scattered cheers]

Well, take a look.

Okay.
