Heralded by The New York Times as “a latter-day Houdini,” David Blaine has redefined magic around the world with his unique, intimate, close-up style and his challenges that have set new boundaries of human endurance.
The world’s most famous magician and endurance artist who has captured several Guinness World Records for his feats, David Blaine amazes audiences around the world with his awe-inspiring body of work. Having first come to the public’s attention through the documentary Street Magic, Blaine is an extraordinary artist who has followed in the footsteps of the great Harry Houdini by pushing himself to the limit and showcasing the strength that lies dormant in all of us. Blaine, who was one of only two speakers to receive a standing ovation at the 2009 TEDMED Conference, is the center of many high-profile, televised stunts, including being buried alive, living underwater and hanging in a glass box over London’s River Thames for 44 days. He dazzles audiences with his unique brand of magic, making a powerful case for the role that creativity plays in all of our lives. Blaine has been featured in many articles as well as on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, Charlie Rose and Larry King Live. His 90-minute special, David Blaine: Real or Magic, premiered on November 19 on ABC to rave reviews. He took viewers into the homes of some of the world’s most high-profile people for their up close and personal reaction to his magic—leaving many stunned and questioning what is happening before their eyes.

Beyond Magic: Up Close and Personal with David Blaine
I’ve worked with a lot of A-List speakers/musicians over my career, and David Blaine has to be at the top in terms of approachability, flexibility and outright genuineness. He was an programmer’s/event planner’s dream. David was the PERFECT closing keynote.ExactTarget
David Blaine pulled out all the stops and completely captivated our audience of 3,600 with his enthralling stories, amazing demonstrations, and genuine likability. One attendee summed it up best by saying, 'I experienced a wide range of emotional, cognitive and visceral responses...all very worthwhile.' David Blaine was simply a sensation.The Richmond Forum
I can honestly say this was one of the best evenings of this lecture series that we’ve ever done. David Blaine was wonderful. The audience loved it, our sponsors loved it and our staff loved it.AT&T PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
It is not easy to reduce to a state of complete silence a room of 10 super-opinionated, garrulous newspaper journalists and advertising executives..But David Blaine managed it…I fully expected him to be an unbearable show-off; a brash, doncha-know-how-clever-I-am Yank. I was wrong. As usual. He was not only warm, engaging and charming, he was electrifyingly brilliant.The London Telegraph
His stunts provide an excellent way to assert his incredible self-control: he trains precisely, obsessively, and maps out every aspect of his environment months in advance.The New York Times Magazine
So impressive, in fact, that viewers will find themselves sometimes speechless, sometimes shouting with excitement, sometimes shaking their heads in disbelief and sometimes trying to keep their eyes from popping out of their heads in wonder.
