I think he is Incredible! I got to go see him live in Branson Missouri! It was awesome! I got an autographed picture of him (my dad got it for me cause he got to be an assistant to him on stage) And he gave it to me! But yeah, incredible Illusions!

I think he is great, Im not sure about being the greatest. There have been so many great illusionists. Houdini, Blackstone (Sr. and Jr.), Chun Lin Soo. Even today we have some greats, Lance Burton, the Pendragons, Penn and Teller. I dont know for sure.

I have a feeling that, in the end, David Copperfield will end up being in magic what Muhammad Ali is in boxing. A very memorable performer, well known by people everywhere, responsible for creating a spike in interest in their field, and widely considered the greatest by lay people. But never among the top 20 of anyone who know's list.

He is very good and one of the most famous magcians alive today but there are people who are better than him. Dont get me wrong, hes still great, I just think there have benn better ones.

How do you define "Greatest" though. Some say that Thurston was the greatest and that his personality and presence on stage was unparralleled even to this date. Blakstone's presence was also considered phenomenal and I know someone who went to his show 3 times just to figure out how he made a miniature horse appear on stage (his understanding and use of misdirection was that good). Houdini, depsite not being the greatest still has his name remembered and called out when you ask someone to name a famous magician. Doug Henning was the best known magician due to his television appearances in the 70's and he is credited with taking magicians out of long tails and bowties and into the 20th century. Because of the exposure one now gets with television, Copperfield has certainly become one of the best known illusionists of our time, he is certainly the highest grossing illusionist of our history but is he THE GREATEST? Something to ponder.
