IN REGARDS TO DAVID BLAINE
Described by howard stern like the greatest magician that ever lived, David Blain single-handedly redefined magic after producing and directing his original Street Magic TV special when he was just twenty-three, which Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller called “the best TV magic special ever made.” “. the New York Times noted that Blaine “took a craft that’s been around for hundreds of years and made it into something unique and fresh”, while The New Yorker claimed “he saved magic”. Over the past two decades, Blaine’s nine primetime specials have seen him buried alive in New York City for a week, locked in a six-ton block of ice for three days, survived standing atop a 100-foot-tall pillar in Bryant Park for 36 hours without a safety net, endured 44 days indoors of a transparent box in London on nothing but water, and had over a million volts discharged at him continuously for 72 hours from seven Tesla coils. Blaine also spent a week submerged in a sphere-shaped aquarium at Lincoln Center, before breaking the world record for freediving live on the Oprah Winfrey show where he held his breath for over 17 minutes. In addition to the millions who have seen him on television, Blaine has also performed live in front of over 20,000 spectators in arenas around the world. He played intimately for every sitting US president, including barack obama, bill clinton and George W. Bush as well as a number of international leaders and personalities such as Henry Kissinger, Michael Bloomberg, stephen hawking, Mohamed Ali, among others. His TED talk has become one of Bill Gates personal favorites and is widely regarded as the most telling testimony Blaine has ever given on the subject of his remarkable career.
