Sometimes the semantic gap between UK and American English provides
great comedy. And let’s face it, no-one deserves to be mocked
more than Uri Geller.
The spoon-bending fraud has crawled out of the woodwork again with
a new TV series in the US, modelled on a similar series he did for
Israeli TV. The show is called Phenomenon and aims to find

NBC has announced Phenomenon, a new reality competition series that
will follow mentalist Uri Geller and Criss Angel Mindfreak
illusionist Criss Angel as they search for
“the next great mentalist,” will premiere on Wednesday,
October 24 at 8PM ET/PT.
