db edits out all the tricks that goes wrong like when he does those tricks that just depend on perecentage and statistics. others like david copperfield do it in front of a live audience
You either don't watch copperfield a lot, or you are completely oblivious to other people's performances.
Hint: Copperfield isn't always what he seems to be. Sure you might be sitting in the audience watching, but know that many of his tricks are edited, staged, all that. (When you see Copperfield go to Hawaii or whatever...yeah, that's staged and edited several times).
What I don't get, is all these haters on DB about how things are staged or edited or faked on TV, but then no one ever acknowledges that almost 90% of pro stage magic is nothing but wires, stooges, stages effects, and editing. Most stage magic guys don't really DO a whole lot, really just put on an act while using a bunch of pre-made gizmos and illusions that do all the work. They aren't in anyway better than anything DB has done.
DB's levitation was faked???? Who cares? Newsflash: No magicians do a "real" levitation. It's true! Copperfields levitation is fake too! He's not really flying!!!
