David Copperfield

By January 13, 2007

Follow me on:

David Copperfield talks about foiling robbers in Florida, his start in magic, creating illusions, televisions specials and his "fountain of youth" in the Bahamas.

"You know, something, I owe CBS a bunch of specials, but I'm having too much fun performing live shows,'' Copperfield says in a recent article. "I did more than 20 specials over 20 years, and I've gotta go back and do one, but I'm just having so much more fun in arena shows, interacting with the audience."

In another recent story, Copperfield says that it's lonely at the top and the article's writer agrees that "when Copperfield asserts that he's the greatest illusionist of our time, it's less a byproduct of braggadocio than it is historical fact."

When referring to David Blaine and Criss Angel, Copperfield says "their TV shows and specials will never be a substitute for the stature of a stage show." But he adds that anything that generates more interest in the craft is welcome.
