Nin - Magical Babe
The real name of the Magical Babe is Ning Tsai, she is from Singapore and is the only woman on the planet recognized as the best professional illusionist in Asia. And today she is not only a successful magician, but also an entrepreneur and just a talented beauty.
Five-year-old Ning was inspired by the tricks performed by Copperfield himself.Having matured, the girl decided to prove by all means that the role of the woman in modern magic can be not only secondary, but also the main one. She created a unique show where she demonstrated the use of non-standard and dangerous objects: swords, sharp spikes, fireballs, chains. And it truly fascinates.
Kio - this is a whole dynasty of magicians, which began the head of the family Emil. He became the first to openly perform in circuses and create grandiose shows with elements of dance, live communication with the audience, pop numbers. He led activities in the USSR, but later began to conquer Europe.
Emil's experience was taken over by his son, Igor, who took the same pseudonym (the real family name is Hirschfeld). The crown numbers of Igor were the transformation of an assistant into a lion and the burning of a woman, the role of which Alla Pugacheva herself once performed. Once there was a trick with a trunk in which Kio was locked and thrown into a pond. But later he got out of the car and stunned the audience.
This magician is one of the best in the history of magic, and his name is in real life David Set Kotkin. The boy began to demonstrate his amazing talents at the age of seven, and at the age of 12 he was already a professional illusionist who entertained the public.later honored to get into the community of US magicians. By the way, in his youth, Copperfield already taught the skills of beginners.
But David was really interested in global tricks, and he began to implement them. Among the most famous and astounding millions of people are tricks such as the disappearance of the Statue of Liberty from view, moving through the Chinese wall and the Grand Canyon, escaping from Alcatraz, jumping from Niagara ... And this is not a complete list of service records, and some tricks are recorded as records.
Houdini, whose real name is Eric Weiss, amazed the audience with the amazing ability to get out unharmed from any artificially created situations. But it all began with card tricks, which ten-year-old Eric showed to the amazed crowd, who admired the boy’s deft hands.
Harry performed grand tricks and worked for a large audience: crowds of people gathered for his performances. In the eyes of the audience, Houdini got out of thick chains, got out of the shackles, got out of the bag fixed under the skyscraper ceiling and appeared in a few minutes at the bottom of the building, got out of the pond, which was thrown with weights on his feet.But the death of the magician was very banal: he died because of peritonitis, although some believe that the death was the result of an unsuccessful performance.
The name of this illusionist is known to many thanks to unusual tricks with the folding of spoons. But initially he was waiting for a different fate: the guy studied at an officer's school, but was expelled from it, since he fell asleep right on the post. The peak of fame came in the 60-70 years of the last century, and the producer helped him to succeed.
Geller's abilities were investigated by scientists who stated that bent spoons are not a trick or an illusion, but a real phenomenon that does not lend itself to the laws of physics. It is still unclear how Uri managed to manage metals, but he also demonstrated a grand trick with stopping the clock in Big Ben.
Harry Blackstone - the real king of spectacular tricks, by the way, has developed the very designs that are now used by many illusionists. He sawed the assistants, literally filled the whole scene with flowers emerging from nowhere, when switching on the famous "floating light bulb" he moved over the heads of amazed spectators, lifted the assistant lying on the couch in the air.
All Blackstone's senior performances were accompanied by lively music creating an atmosphere of mystery and magic that inspired incredible delight to the public. After the death of the great magician, his experience was used by his son, who also achieved success in this matter.
This illusionist in Russia was little-known, but he conquered almost all Western countries, thanks to which he was recognized as the father and forefather of magic, which many used to see it. Werner was born in Canada and, as a young seven-year-old boy, began to engage in a trick show.
David managed to bring to perfection and complicate a few previously performed tricks and develop many of his tricks, making a huge contribution to the art of illusion. But he was remembered by the fact that Houdini himself could not unravel his secret. The legendary magician claimed that he would declassify any trick after seeing him three times. But even after viewing Werner's view eight times, he could not understand what the mystery of the climax was.
The great magicians of past ages would surely have been proud of the modern stuntman David Blaine, who today is famous for his incredible tricks.It all started with playing cards, but, having fully mastered this sphere, Blaine moved on to other tricks, more global and interesting for viewers.
David specializes in death calls, which he regularly does in many different ways: burying himself in a grave, plunging into water for a record time, freezing his body in an iceberg, starving for a long time, reviving a pigeon, and so on. Non-standard methods of this illusionist attract the public and bring him a huge income. And Blaine more than once entered the Guinness Book of Records.
These were the legendary magicians of the world who would make anyone believe in the magic.
