Columbus, OH- (May 29) 2x Winner of TV’s World Magic Awards, Michael Griffin Escape Artist (http://www.escapeguy.com) appeared on America’s Got Talent Monday night inviting Howard Stern the newest judge to tie him up on stage. The King of all media admittedly didn’t know knots while bantering with Sharon Osborne. The Boss of Bondage looked at Howard’s handy work and began to shake violently, falling over in his chair, slithering out of the ropes in 26 seconds. He did not escape to the next round and is challenging Americas Got Talent to a live REMATCH.
Speculation of possible sabotage surfaced within hours of the videos hitting the web. According to Writingshares.com “I think it’s possible the show sabotaged him on purpose because they want to feature that kid act from St. Louis that was seen in the previews.” Griffin, remarked later that he wasn’t happy not being allowed to do his more famous signature acts, instead being forced to perform the rope challenge, insisting that if you don’t get tied well by someone the whole thing unravels. The Escape Artist is not ruling out a “Do Over” match with America’s Got Talent.
