"Sometimes the trick does not go well. During one performance, we could not make it in time and I cut my finger, I have a scar. But since then we worked on our mistakes," said Ginger Light. 

In addition, the artists have prepared a special show for Kazakhstan but did not share the specifics. 

"I really talk a lot being on the stage as I am a comedian. Sometimes, some confusion occurs because of poor interpretation. That is the reason I rely more on visual tricks to eliminate such situations occurring because of big and small language barriers. That is why we have prepared a special Kazakhstan video for Kazakhstan," said forger Harrison Greenbaum.

At the end of the press conference, the artists assured that the audience would not be bored as the live performance cannot be compared to what is shown in films. 

"Our show is visual. We interact a lot with the audience and attempt to make their pastime better as much as possible. Nothing is better than to watch the show with one's own eyes. It is much better to watch live shows what we saw in films," said magician Ginger Light. 

The artists noted that it is an honor for them to perform in Kazakhstan, and they look forward to stepping onto the stage, so to demonstrate their best.
