:D

I think the two jays have a nice dose of showmanship, they are entertainers.
Blaine is on another planet, which is all pure effect and looping together reactions...
Strebler don't know.
Pearlman– no character

Copperfield– creative, and a great showman, as well as being technically skilled.

The trouble with the young buckz (whatever the heck those are) is that they appeal to people between the ages of 12 and 26. I hate to break it to you but people like this do not buy tickets to live magic shows, hire magicians for corporate functions, parties, trade shows or for restaurants. The kids will watch Cris Angel on TV (which is fine,) and advertisers love that group, but there is a limit to the number of magicians that will get a big TV contract. In fact it is not more than two or three. You need to structure your style to attract people who will pay you. Thay means those over 35. They like the goofy glitz of Vegas and Branson, MO. They don't like the goofy glitz of Angel.

Yeah, uh Chris, agree and respect the above and all that junk, but to Dogbreath, all of that just went in one ear and out the other.

You'll probably receive a reply going "Naw, [edited] dat [edited], yo, BLAINEZ FOREVERZZZZZZZ!"

u guys are all comparing apples and oranges. You can't compare Sankey to, Copperfield and you can't compare Noblezada to Blaine...etc....Copperfield was almost strictly stage illusions, while sankey's strength seems to be mentalism. U wanna compare Pearlman, a dude who is an incredible card magician, with Blaine who likes to make himself popular by performing stunts such as "vertigo", then be my guest, but you can't compare them...they'll all completely different styles of magic. They'll all great in their own way...except Blaine, personally I don't care for him. Sankey is my favorite artist, but I won't go and say that he's better than any of the others cuz they're beyond comparison. He is just personally my favorite.

Peace out.

I am sorry. I strongly disagree with several statements in your post. The mentioning of Sankey as a mentalist is completely false. Sankey's strength is not mentalism but close up magic with cards, coins, and other everyday objects. Sankey dabs in mental magic, not mentalism. If you want mentalism, true mentalism, get out of Penguin Town and look into Banachek, Annemann, Dunninger, Corinda, Cassidy, Maven, Lesley, Osterlind, Becker, Jermay, Earle, and the writings of Derren Brown.

If you want to be Penguin centric, look into Morgan Strebler, his Liquid Metal, Opener, Closer, and PK Silverware by Banachek, Prism by Maven, the Xpert, and some others...

About Pearlman, see John_Frawley 1 - 100 & Gregor, Nik, scorch, Exodus, Fatal, and others about their opinions of Pearlman.

I agree that comparing these performers is a monumental waste of time. I wish the polls with comparisions will just die.
