Adamcadabra

Yes, I'm serious. Deal with it.

Today: David Copperfield


In April 2006, Copperfield and two female assistants were robbed at gunpoint after a performance in West Palm Beach.

According to his police statement, Copperfield did not hand over anything, claiming that he used sleight-of-hand to hide his possessions. [source]

Idea: David Copperfield Facts.


As computer-generated ghosts flew into the audience at the end of his 16th television special (1995), I thought: "David Copperfield must be out of ideas." Sure enough, he disappeared onto the touring circuit afterward, re-surfacing only in 2001 for a mediocre 17th special, in which he stood in a fire, levitated a sofa and performed an illusion he bought the rights to.

[sigh]

You're David fuckin' Copperfield! Magic's Houdini! I've seen all of your specials. I know your potential. Get your head in the game!


I was sold on Copperfield after seeing his Death Saw illusion, a spin on the ol' saw-a-person-in-half trick.

So cheesy, so awesome — like fondue.

It's even better in person. I saw him perform it live in Tahoe.

  1. david copperfield is my favorite magician, i hate when others rag on him.

    i think every magician that doesnt fly sucks.

  2. david copperfield changed my life. after my parents took me to see him at the pantages theatre when i was five, i became a fanatic; i recorded every special (they remain on vhs) and, for birthdays and christmases following years later, i got magic tricks. ive had my birthday at the magic castle in hollywood and the shortlived 'wizardz' dinner show at universal citywalk. i still have all of those tricks. for years i thought my calling was illusionry.

    i boycott adamriff for mocking the magic.

    especially for hatin' on copperfield. he flew over my head, on the mothafuckin' realz. I HAVEN'T SEEN YOU DO THAT, GUYS OF ADAMRIFF.COM.

    in tears,
