Nate Staniforth performed this week on NBC’s Today Show. The Iowa City-based magician appeared during a segment hosted by Jenna Bush Hager and Kathy Lee Gifford. Megyn Kelley also joined in as the subject of a card trick.

Staniforth is on a media tour to promote his new memoir, Here is Magic: A Magician’s Search for Wonder in a Modern World. Staniforth did not have an opportunity to discuss his book, and the garrulous Gifford talked over Staniforth during much of the segment.

Staniforth performed two acts of close-up magic involving simple, everyday props.
