Shark Tank

Douglas was hired by Jarrett & Raja as a magic / creative consultant for their featured spot on the hit TV show Shark Tank.

Initially, Douglas was brought in to lend his “magic eye” and magic knowledge for Jarrett & Raja’s appearance on Shark Tank. First, Douglas worked with Jarrett to redesign the method for how the girl was going to appear in a custom made, clear fish tank piano (built by the guys from the hit TV show Tank’d). This illusion would be the climactic finale to their live performance for the Sharks. Doug was at every rehearsal to help with blocking, staging, and dialogue as a routine that might be performed in 3 minutes live, had to be trimmed to 60 seconds for television. During one rehearsal, Douglas got to “jam” on ideas with J&R’s director, Phil McKinley, (Showstoppers and Spider-Man: Turn of the Dark) who shared his incredible insight and expertise, ranging from the overall presentation, to some key details of the performance.

From years of pitching shows in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, Douglas shared his knowledge and some marketing secrets to help prepare Jarret & Raja for the question and answer segment, which is often the most important part of the pitch to the Sharks.
