This shows how many true magicians are in Penguin. OZ PEARLMAN???? JAY NOBLEZADA???? THEY DONT EVEN MAKE THE LIST. Come on. Outside of Penguin no one has ever even heard of them. Copperfield is the best of them. The most creative magician alive is Paul Harris. Any of you read Art of Astonishment at all? People use Paul's stuff everyday. How does Oz make this list and not Ed Marlo, possibly the greatest card magician ever. Dai Vernon anyone? Fooled Houdini didnt he.
Strebler is billed as the hottest new magician in Vegas and could very well be. Sankey is a genious, but again Paul Harris creates better stuff and it hits harder. Bill Malone is great, could be on the list. Ammar is amazing, should be on the list. But at least you got Copperfield on there. Watch David Copperfield: Illusions-15 years of magic and then say OZ is the best! I voted for Copperfield.
Also as far as OZ, who could put him on here and NOT Brad Christian. More layman have seen and been amazed bt B.C. as he has had TV commercials and everything. His training video's even get reccomendations by some of the biggest names in magic!
I agree with everything you said except for the comparison between Oz and Christian. Oz has an off-broadway magic show and lately has been working at a restaurant in New York doing magic for people. All you see of Brad Christian is doing magic at the Illusionist place and sometimes for random people for his DVDs. But the rest, I agree with. Paul Harris IS the most creative man in magic. His effects are unbelievable, awhile Sankey, a great magician, creates effecta that are great, but are all the same to me. All of his tricks use the same methods. For example, The Tap Vanish, Erdnase Change, Bill Switch, Paperclipped Switch, etc. All the rest of the magicians you named also should have been on the list.
