heres how i see it best street magician brad cristian all the way
close-up definitly jay sankey
stage-of course david coperfeild

out of the three? well...taking it into anylization i would have to say jay for these reasons... 1. he's hallarious
2.he's created alot of good hard hitting effects
3.he's a good teacher

and i would have to say in second would be brad cristian because the only thing he's missing i a good sense of humer other than that he's an amazing at teaching magic.if it werent for him i wouldn't be able to the pass so amazingly today.

Who on the list does? :lol:

Making teaching DVDs is simple. Making 100's of millions of dollars, one theater at a time is hard.

I fail how someone can say that Jay Sankey, someone who only audience tests 50% of his published material, is a good magician. He has republished the same, lame, stolen routines time after time, letting people believe that he is the person to credit with such ideas. None of his best tricks are original. However, we look at copperfield.... 90% of the tricks he performs are results of his creative mind. He then performs them for millions of people on every continent!!! Are any of Jay's creations that good? NO. Are his presentational skills that good? NO!!! So, Copperfield all the way!!!

You may have a life, but you lack punctuation.

Don't go to bed mad, or you will get up mad.

Somebody needs to learn when a joke has been told.

Sorry, but Copperfield is undoubtedly miles ahead of anyone else. This is how I rate them on a chart:


Copperfield

Blaine

The others.

I do respect Blaine though. While many say he is a poor showman, I think that he on another level of showmanship. Much like Uri Geller. While many magicians say he is boring and uninteresting, laymen are deeply touched by him.

But whatever.
