He uses other peoples magic, and it only looks so good because he acts so good. No, I don't think he is the best street magician.

In order to answer truthfully you'd have to see ALL of the street performers. I'm sure there's a whole mess of them. Until you see all of the performers you can't truthfully say that David Blaine is the best. But, I'm sure that there's somebody better than he is.

David Blaine is not a street magician. At one time he worked the streets.

The best street magicians are JIM CELLINI and GAZZO, men who know whats it's all about.

Gazzo had a stroke years ago and can still do things with cards that David will, never, ever approach. Most street magic does not involve cards by the way!!!!

David a good magician, and no, I'm not jealous of what he has done for himself or magic in general.

I don't think there ever was or will ever be a best magician, street or otherwise. Some are better than others, but that doesn't make any one magician the best.

It's like saying who's the best Actor. There are none, unless of course you're talking about the Academy Awards, and there no Academy Awards for magicians. Even if an Actor gets an Oscar for best Actor, there are still people who will think someone else should have received it.

It's all a matter of personal opinion of who you think is the best, and everybody has an opinion.

good words Frijid, good strong words.


Like I said, Blaines magic only looks good because he is a good actor. That is why he is not the best

I'm with frijid. david is a very well rounded magician. he does many tricks pretty dang good.

but i think you cant point out the best magician because he doesnt exist. some are more original than others, and you may even be able to say that one magician can do a certain effect or move better than anyone else, and in some cases you wouldnt be lying.

People underrate and overrate him....some people think that he is the man......most people at penguin can do those tricks including me....well excluding some things...but anyway magicians think he just a not so good...but think we did as much work as we did if not more, he just took it a step further...to me he is not the best but he is certinaly not a fraud or at all like the type
