I Hate David Copperfield
Geoff Williams’ I Hate David Copperfield Trick is an ultra-visual, ultra-practical, and ultra-cool handling and presentation for Larry Jennings’ wonderful “The Close-Up Illusion” trick. This is a miracle that you will carry with you all of the time and absolutely will blow your audiences away. This looks like real magic…even to YOU as you do it.
The performer asks, “Would you like to see the I Hate David Copperfield trick? Do you know why I call it that? Because “I Hate David Copperfield”. I actually don’t hate him. He’s a really nice guy and a great magician… it’s just that every time people find out I’m a magician they start comparing me to him. “Can you walk through the Great Wall of China?” “Can you make the Statue of Liberty disappear?” “Do you date a supermodel?” That last one hurts the most. So I decided to do something Copperfield can’t do. A close-up illusion that happens right before your eyes.”
The performer then visibly and cleanly melts one card through another in a manner that looks like trick photography… but live in person, and 3 times!
“The ‘I Hate David Copperfield’ Trick is Williams’ take on Larry Jennings ‘The Close-Up Illusion.’ That classic is one of my bread-and-butter routines, but my jaw dropped when I saw what Williams did with it.”
