Starting in 1960, Wilson's parents, pioneering TV magicians Mark Wilson and Nani Darnell, appeared on their own show - and later as guests on shows like Saturday Night Live. In their signature Allakazam trick, Nani lay enclosed inside two cars of a miniature train with only her head and feet showing, and Mark proceeded to cut her in half....

Hughes, who calls himself a "standup magician" (really, it's even his Twitter handle), is the master of ceremonies at the hour-long Insomnia, so named because he wants the audience to stay up at night, trying to figure out the tricks behind the magic....
