ELLEN DEGENERES CONTINUES TO SHOWCASE MAGIC

According to MonstorsAndCritics.com, Ellen Degeneres continues to include magic in her shows whenever she can and she has a Really Big Show planned for TBS in late November. "In "Ellen's Even Bigger Really Big Show", the comedian will intro a slate of fresh talent that includes magician Hans Klok, celebrity impressionists and more.  The show will be taped on Thursday, Nov. 20, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace and will air on TBS on Saturday November 29th."   According to the article, all of the acts are  "hand-picked by DeGeneres."  The live show will begin at 7 p.m. (PT) on November 20th and the television edition will premier on TBS at  9 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. “We decided to bring the show back to Vegas because the first act we booked is a ‘brother-sister pole act,’” said DeGeneres.  “Apparently Vegas is the only place where you can get away with something like that.”
