Mark spoke and came across very well. Sheila looked beautiful. Joe played his role perfectly...especially with the fire extinguisher.

As always with them....a job very well done!

It was fantastic.

I really enjoy seeing escape work on television that isn't: Oh no! Will he make it?? *poof of smoke* HE'S IN THE AUDIENCE!!! *queue Peter Gabriel music and dramatic lighting*

As is often the case with television, you had the sense of 'being rushed,' but the Cannons made excellent use of the time, giving a great performance.

And yes, this definitely beats out the hackneyed 'Vegas escape illusion disappointingly presented as an escape.'

The Cannons will also be featured on the March 16th episode - performing their full-view "Diamond Plated Steel Box Escape".

Great performance tonight.

My wife made an observation that I found entertaining: Why doesn't he take his shoes off first? He would be more comfortable in the box without them.

Maybe there is a reason not to remove the shoes.

And I think the point is to NOT be comfortable in the box. Smile

Or, not to "appear" to be comfortable.

Mark does a great job of 'filling up' the box...not that he has to try that hard though, that is one tiny box for a guy his size. That is part of the beauty to this escape. The audience is in disbelief that a person can even fit in the box.

As Kevin just pointed out, the reason for not removing the shoes - is to emphasize how small & tight the box is...and it is!

If Mark had removed his shoes, then we'd hear people complaining that he made the escape look too easy & comfortable for himself.

Removing one's shoes first, would make the escape a little "sissy", if you ask me.

Anyone who has ever witnessed the very small (canvas covered) "Brooks Trunk"...has never seen a performer remove his shoes for that one either.

Nice job, Mark Cannon.

My wife made the same observation.
This stunt IS as much a feat of 'enterology' as an escape.

What is it with women (wives) wondering why Mark didn't remove his shoes??

I bet Mark eats less than 30 minutes before he jumps in a WTC, too.
