For the last half-century, James “The Amazing” Randi has entertained millions of people around the world with his remarkable feats of magic, escape, and trickery. But when he saw faith healers, fortunetellers, and psychics using his beloved magician’s tricks to steal money from innocent people and destroy lives, he dedicated his life to exposing frauds, using the wit and style of the great showman that he is. Part detective story, part biography, and a bit of a magic act itself, the award-winning An Honest Liar, directed and produced by Justin Weinstein and Tyler Measom, premieres Monday, March 28, 2016 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
