Lazarus Benson’s TV appearance is so good it wrecks the sound system


What you’re about to see is hard to watch. Not because it’s gruesome, even though it is about learning magic in time for Halloween, but because the delighted shrieks of the hosts blow out their body mics. Clip mics pick up every rustle of clothing or tiny exhalation of breath, so when Lazarus Benson does his thing – and it’s a dang fine thing, we must say – well, the sound guy doesn’t have a prayer of saving this audio.
