After a NSFW opening, the Drinking Partners start the party early as they celebrate Ed’s birthday while indulging in some Mindful Brewing crowlers. The vibe is already tingling with a fast-paced energy when Pittsburgh’s favorite magician Lee Terbosic joins in. Although Mr. Terbosic does not divulge trade secrets, he does reveal the training and preparation that goes into his act and admits why he had Franco Harris at his Houdini100 event and how he wanted to make Sydney Crosby levitate. The back and forth between the Drinking Partners and Lee Terbosic never slows and offers listeners a rare chance to understand what happens behind the stage; and the fashion choices that the men make for performances, including a confession from Ed that he irons his sweatpants. A charming, banter-full podcast that has something for everyone. Catch Lee Terbosic and his new 52 Up Close show at Hotel Monaco now; for tickets, visit www.52upclose.com. The Drinking Partners will be at Comtra Theatre May 26 for an early show (7pm) and a late-night, college-special show (9:30pm).
