David Copperfield

An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion

Went for a date with David on Monday to watch the Master himself ( David still maintains Houdini will never be surpassed ). They didn't allow cameras/video/audio in the auditorium, and I didn't wanna get into trouble, so I managed to find some pics online that were of the show and thought I'd share them with everyone .. they're exactly like what we saw at the show, which was very entertaining and pretty awesome.

David Copperfield as I remembered him ( when I was a teen, of course ) - cute, even with the funky Richard Marx hair

He did all sorts of illusions, using many audience members ( many whom were planted, I am sure ), throwing out frisbees and balls and even pickles to us to "give the illusion" of randomness..he's a great frisbee thrower if he managed to get them at all his planted audience members...

Squeezed himself into a tiny space, disappeared and reappeared from different parts of the auditorium, card tricks with a deadly scorpion, passed through a sheet of metal and transporting an audience member and him ( with a polaroid picture taken right before "beaming up", of several audience members from that night to vouch for the authenticity of the "beaming uppedness" ) to Perth Australia with Live Feed going on from there....

Also, there was the impregnating of a woman on stage without even touching her, and Webster his duck was used for several of the illusions but the one that wowed me was when he made a classic convertible car appear onstage amidst a dozen witnesses from the audience..

MY David and his brother have attempted to figure out some of the illusions etc, but I REFUSE TO BE DISILLUSIONED!!! ( Pun intended ) I want to remain in awe of magic and continue to be captivated by even the simplest sleight of hand illusions...
