both of them use stooges, or in fact the people they do effects for know that they are going to be walking up to them to do a trick before they actually do, they have to sign a release to be allowed to show them on t.v. So the reactions you see are over acted reactions because the people know this is their 15 minutes of fame. as for camera edits, noone has yet to show proof on angel's camera editing skills. must I bring up the trick that I did a review on that people thought was camera editing, maybe I shouldn't. or what about the self levitation that people thought can only be done on camera, those same people rushed out and bought it didnt they? what about the ring in ice cube trick, that was proven it wasnt a camera trick even though many here thought it was. I can go on and on with this, yet all you magicians who would rather scream camera edit, than scream good job wont listen anyway.

For camera trickery and/or stooge audience, the "pulling apart girl", "Cellphone thru bottle" and "Building flight" are popping into my mind...there might be more...

dude, the pulling apart girl was an assistant, it was more of a gag then a magic trick, they have a picture of her with criss angel at the a&e website. You need to stop worrying so much about criss angel and work on your performances!!!!

And as I have said, it was more of a gag than an illusion, so who cares. Only the people on this forum who have nothing better to do than to criticise someone who is apparently making an impact on their life!!! That's who.

I just want to say my part in this issue:

Notice that nobody is posting posts about David Blaine uses stooges and gimmicks? What about David Copperfield? Lance Burton? Jay Sankey? Nope. Why could that be? Although all of these magicians use gimmicks and stooges, Criss Angel is the only one that seems to have an ongoing debate about him. Why?
It all lies in the presentation. It looks like he doesn't eally care about the magic, and is just doing it for the publicity. There's hardly any suspense, no mystery, he just thinks magic is just making miracles, which isn't true. It's about entertaining the audience. If he's just boring all the time, the presentation gets boring, and people will want to know how it's done. Which then leads to the theory of him using stooges.
Now, if you like Criss, then that's fine with me. But I don't think he's that great of a magician.


I agree, whenever Criss does a trick he seems...bored. Uninterested, unexcited. I also think he's emo, but that's another story.

There are some tricks of his where he NEVER EVEN SMILES. You HAVE to smile, no matter how creepy the trick is. Like, maybe an evil grin at the end. But a smile nonetheless.
