David Copperfield Crimefighter

April 28, 2006 -- MASTER illusionist David Copperfield tricked a couple of gun-wielding teenage robbers and then had them arrested. The crafty conjurer and two female aides were walking to their tour bus outside the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, Fla., after a performance and late dinner when a car carrying four teens pulled up. Two youths jumped out, waving guns and demanding cash and valuables. One Copperfield aide emptied her pockets of $400; the other handed over her purse containing 200 euros ($250), $100, her passport, plane tickets and a cellphone. Then came Copperfield's magic act. He turned his pockets inside out to show the thugs they were empty - despite the cellphone, wallet and passport he had tucked inside. The bandits got in their car and took off. But Copperfield memorized their license plate and. within 10 minutes, cops arrested the robbers and recovered the loot. "Call it reverse pickpocketing," he told the Palm Beach Post. All four teens were charged with armed robbery and are being held without bail.

While he is no David Blaine, I still have a lot of respect for David Copperfield. I grew up with his astonishing TV specials, he’s the Michael Jordan of magic. I think him and David Blaine should have a Magic off. That could be incredible…

For those of you who don’t know, David Blaine is submersing himself in an Aquarium for 8 days in NYC. You can go visit him. I hopefully will get there to say hello to him…

Till next time… “OO OO OO It’s MAGIC…”
