    I cant believe people here. Criss Angel is not the best street magician but David Blaine. Blaine started the whole thing anyway. Angel focuses on stooge acts such as the wall walker, levitating from one building to another, walking on water, cutting a person in half, and so on... I only know a few things Blaine has done for a stooge act. His card or ring in a bottle tricks, when he duplicated money, making his arm pass through glass, but Criss did that too. People say David did his camera effects on his levitations yeah he did but he actually made people believe he could levitate by the Balducci tecnique. But Angel actually payed actors when he did his levitation from one building to another. The only reason why Angel is more famous is because he has an ongoing season and every season he made had atleast 5 stooge acts. I know people here would say "How do you know he payed actors in his wall walking, walking on water, etc..." Go to metacafe.com search in Criss Angel and read the comments and you will realize that most of his tricks are stooges. Another reason why Angel has more fans is because Blaine is inactive right now. If you guys haven't noticed Blaine only does his tricks in 1 hour long specials. While Angel has a series where Angel creates more stooge acts because he can't think of  new tricks. I have alot of things to say but most are hard to explain here. Im not trying to say that Criss sucks and Blaine rocks. Even though I am a Blaine fan doesn't mean I don't appreciate Angel's creativity.

    They are both very annoying and arrogant.  I can only watch a few minutes of either one at a time.

    Ok, you can't have good television without some editing. And how come you didn't say that David Blaine doesn't use paid actors.No body knows that FOR sure, only his crew does. You can't trust everything Access Hollywood says. Criss Angel's stunts are flipping amazing. He is the real deal. I would like to see your David Blain hang from fishhooks pierced in his back soaring over Las Vegas for 5 hours straight. I'm not mad at all but I would just like you to explain a little more. Thank you

    Criss took Blaine's card through window to the next level. Blaine obviously had a person on the other side of the glass. But Criss did the trick inside of a moving bus. I don't have a problem with Blaine, he's pretty good too...but i just like Criss' presentation better, makes it more exciting. And he's won Magician of the Year numerous times for a reason!!

    i like both and all those who does magic.. just simply bcos i like magic.. but if i had to choose, i pick david cos he's the pioneer of street magic and im used to watching his show.. but that will be the other way round if chris was doin it 1st. anyway, here's hoping for new david magic/stunt show.

    Siegfried and Roy. But i like Blaine too,he almost died in that bubble. Not from the drowning but the time spents in there,muscles shrinking,organs shutting down.

    The Best Ever.
