Master Magician David Copperfield

Master illusionist David Copperfield recalls his beginnings as a childhood magician, his very first magic act, and why his early heroes were filmmakers and dancers instead of magicians.  He reveals how he comes up with new ways to astound audiences and the remarkable 100 year evolution of his most famous illusion.  He talks about how he quietly began amassing the world’s largest magic collection, some of his favorite pieces from the collection, and how these one-of-a-kind items tell the entire history of magic.  Plus we discuss some of Houdini’s most famous escapes, the under-told story of women in magic, and the weird and wonderful stories behind some of the most colorful conjurors!

Order David’s new book David Copperfield’s History of Magic on Amazon, Audible, or wherever books are sold.  It’s full of beautiful photos from his private collection and makes a great holiday gift.  Visit www.davidcopperfield.com to learn more and order tickets to Copperfield’s show An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas.  Follow him on Twitter at @D_Copperfield.
