Two of Mr. Escapes Proteges Meet Up!

Steve Baker, Mr. Escape has had three different proteges over the years. The most recent were Dean Carnegie and Andrew Basso. Any guesses who the third was? Today, Andrew is touring with the highly successful show The Illusionists. They had a great run on Broadway and are now touring across the United States. Dean Carnegie is hoping to revive his escape career shortly after a number of health related issues put him on the sidelines.

Andrew and Dean met up at the Kennedy Center in January. Andrew was performing in The Illusionists to rave reviews. He presents an Upside Down Straight Jacket Escape in the show and he also closes the first half of the show with a remarkable full view Water Torture Cell Escape.
