That fire was 20 feet in front of them. How would it burn criss. Also criss wouldve been out of the box to get burnt. That was a great trick. I wish i couldve seen houdini do it

he moves into place while the pyro is still going so that is why he would get burnt. What was with him being dressed like a woman?

I think Houdini's metamorphis was a bit different. I believe he was handcuffed put into a bag and then into a box and the box was locked. then they would close the curtain for a few seconds and Houdini was outside the box and the box was still locked then they opened the box and the bag and his wife was their with handcuffs on. Also i believe the spectators were able to examine the box. I haven't seen tonights yet since i live in california but from what you said it doesn't sound the same.

Thanks
Sean

I was impressed. I'm almost positive that they "I was burned" thing was done in the same context as Chris Korn's "accident" on Mondo Magic a while back. It's too make it seem more dangerous, therefore raising the interest of people. I do give him credit for that change though. That was impressive.

His stuff is more dangerous than Houdini's. Houdini always accounted for every risk and was completely safe. Angel, on the other hand, is still safe, while using objects that are potentially more dangerous.

Houdini died from being punched in the stomach. Don't believe everything you read, especially about a magician that "cheated" death all the time. No one's going to say that he died from his kidney rupturing. It's not a manly death, like dying in the water torture cell. In all of Houdini's stunts, he was safe. He was always safe. The man was a genius. He wasn't going to risk his life for something he may not be able to get out of.

yeah but he was more of an escapologist than magician. And Criss is more magician than escapologist.

Yes, but Angel's in more of harms way than Houdini was. That's what the topic was about.
