About David Copperfield
Hailed by audiences and critics alike as the greatest illusionist of our time, David Copperfield has elevated the ancient art of magic to new heights and redefined it over the past few decades. And now he is bringing his magic back to Vegas for a special show at the MGM Grand David Copperfield Theatre located inside the MGM Grand.
The man behind such illusions as the Statue of Liberty disappearance and walking through the Great Wall of China, Copperfield began his career in magic as a child performing illusions in his hometown of Metuchen, New Jersey. He began performing professionally at age 12 and became the youngest person ever to be admitted to the Society of American Magicians. So advanced in his years, by sixteen Copperfield was already teaching a course in magic at New York University.
During his years at college, Copperfield was cast as the lead in the Chicago Musical, “The Magic Man.” Copperfield acted, sang and created all the magic in the show, which eventually became the longest running musical in Chicago history. Due to Copperfield's impressive illusions in the play, he was chosen to host and star in “The Magic of ABC.” During his time on the show, Copperfield created and performed impressive, mind-boggling illusions before a live audience. Since then Copperfield has gone on to baffle audiences all over the world performing over 550 shows per year to sold out audiences.
Some of Copperfield's most famous tricks and illusions include making a duck magically appear in a bucket held by an audience member, having a deadly scorpion choose the card picked out by another audience volunteer, or transporting himself and a fan to a Hawaii beach.
