My Favorite Magicians

I'm glad to hear that The History Channel's mini-series Houdini starring Adrien Brody is a huge ratings hit.  Magic is as popular as ever. My favorite modern illusionists are:


David Blaine -- From cool street magician who hung out with the stars to endurance performer, he's always entertaining.


Criss Angel -- His Mindfreak show was great and he did some of the best levitation tricks I've ever seen.

Penn and Teller -- I love them. They know how to entertain.


David Copperfield -- He took magic to a whole new level.


The Foodie Magician Josh Beckerman -- He's totally New York.
