What the He%$ was that? Do you have any idea what punctuation, spelling or capitalization is? To answer your question, about 90% of my stuff is MY stuff. I don't use commercialized effects, as they belong to someone else. My shows are original, with original material, and original patter. I don't copy other performer's material and don't even think of copying their styles. What's mine, is mine and I work VERY hard to keep it that way.

Speak for yourself. I am sure Criss is a far better speller than you will ever be, but that is not saying much. Criss does not do magic, he does camera editing and cutshots. David Blaine did magic, legitimate magic that did not need a cutshot every second. Criss Angel is nothing more than a hack, and a poor Blaine emulator, nothing more. I doubt Criss could even perform most of the material in Mark Wilson's course judging from his mediocre basic handlings that I have seen before the cutaway.

Also whether you do all original material is irrelevant, and no indication of skill level at all. Some are magic inventors/innovators, some are merely performers. Few are actually great at both. One can be very successful at being proficient at one, they do not need to be both.

I graded your post... you got an F.

I then laughed for 10 minutes because you said Criss Angel is a better magician than Banachek and Luke Jermay. You do realize that those two come up with a lot of the material Criss uses on his show, right?

HAHA. That's true. At the beginning of every episode, it says, "These stunts and illusions are DESIGNED and tested by Criss Angel, a highly trained professional..." :roll: Give me a freaking break!!! I become less of a Criss Angel fan every week. I literally watch the show so I know what effects to take OUT of my act.
