    The battle lines have been clearly drawn. Who do you think is the best overall entertainer of all time. This one is for magicians. Laymen need not apply.

    [Edit] This thread isn't really a popularity contest or anything. This is more intended to see who among the stars we enjoy the most, and or possibly draw inspirtation from. I'm well aware there is no way in hell you can compare each of these artists on the same level with fair results.

  2. I dont think you can ask a question like that, every one of those people has a complete different style. In my opinion its like comparing heavy metal to Rap, evey one has different things they look for and like in preformences. They are all very good.

    Penn & Teller
    David Blaine
    Criss Angel
    Jeff McBride
    Paul Harris

  5. its procounced hons clock if that helps he kinda looks like one of the dude with the lion idk there names
  6. Amazing Johnathan
    Penn & Teller
    and of course jeff mcbride
  7. Amazing Jonathan!!!:D
  8. Great list, though I was bothered by the fact that Akira Fuji wasn't on it.
  9. David Copperfield is the best entertainer, and magician...
  10. In my opinion, Derren Brown is about as good as it gets. He is my idol in magic, and anyone that disagrees with me shall feel the sharp teeth of vengeance sinking into their chubby rear of ignorance. Feel free to post your own opinions about him, though. ;)
  11. Ricky Jay.
  12. I think this is a bit of a pointless question really, I don't see the point of picking one.

    If I had to, I'd go with Derren Brown, his TV shows are always very entertaining and his sleight of hand is incredible.

    cwiss angel. but in all seriousness derren brown.
  14. After just viewing Live at the Tom Foolery and reading his book i'm gonna go with Tom Mullica.
  15. Houdini for sure.

    1) every knows him as the worlds greatest
    2) no one will ever beat him (its not possible to)
    3) he was more determined than any one else, both in and outside of magic
    4) he has inspired countless amounts of magician

    I could go on all day about all the stuff he has done
  16. 5) He was fooled by dai vernon.....;)
  17. he was fooled once, how many times have you been fooled by a magic trick? i bet it is more than once
  18. i believe this thread was submitted just to see who the most liked magician is so theres no point in saying that it is like comparing rap to heavy metal ,we all know it but many of us wonder who other magicians believe to be the best (i hope that makes sanse).

    That said i have to admit i love DERREN BROWN ,his character.................his sleight of hand (although he mostly performs mentalism and we dont get to see it)...............Derren ROCKS
  19. hey, wat about david roth?
