Beginning Wednesday, March 23 truTV‘s hit hidden-camera comedy series returns with the back half of its sophomore season as magician Michael Carbonaro unleashes his unbelievable illusions on a slew of new and unsuspecting individuals! Carbonaro may be a magician by trade, but at heart he has a love for playing tricks on people – which often results in hilarious and unbelievable reactions from the public.

In the midseason premiere, “EggShaq,” airing next Wednesday, Michael welcomes viewers back with a collection of illusions that have bystanders questioning everything they know!

While at a bowling alley, Michael demonstrates a hazardous pro-bowler laser technology while also revealing the mystery behind “beginning bowling balls.” From there, Michael shocks a seasoned musician with his lengthy spit take, but that’s nothing compared to the midseason premiere’s final hurrah!

As the premiere comes to a close, Michael pulls out the big guns with a super-sized guest star when Shaquille O’Neal stops by to help Michael with a special plan!

In our exclusive clip, Michael offers viewers a sneak peek at his prank on an unsuspecting fan in which Shaq drops to lend a hand! Here’s the story, Shaq is coming in to check out a new product that he is considering endorsing. It’s up to Michael and the fan to sell the product to Shaq, who is expecting a live demo of the product – a machine which is supposed to increase a chicken’s egg production.

However, things quickly take a turn for the worse leaving the unsuspecting fan in a very interesting predicament to say the least.

What’s in store for the poor unsuspecting fan and just how will he react when all is revealed? You’ll have to tune in next Wednesday to find out!
