It’s all an illusion.
Back in the day, The Amazing Johnathan scored with standup comedy sets which mixed sleight-of-hand magic, gross-out theatrics, and a snarky personality.
These days, he’s somewhat hollowed-out, possibly fighting a death sentence thanks to heart disease, likely addicted to crystal meth, but still up to shenanigans.

Is he using Johnathan for his own purposes, or does the magic man still hold all the cards?
A fascinating plunge into a world where little is as it seems, and everyone is working an angle.
