Full Bio

David Blaine was born in Brooklyn, New York. He started doing magic at age four. His first trick was the pencil-through-card gizmo that you can still buy. When he was 10, his mother remarried and moved to New Jersey. At 16, he levitated for his doctor, who immediately wanted to take him for tests. His mother was very supportive of him and his magic, but unfortunately died in 1994 when David was 21.

David became noticed when he would walk up to people and do magic for them. This was a great ice breaker. He then started doing parties for rich people and got into the club scene. That was when he was noticed by Al Pacino. Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro noticed him, too, and befriended him. He then got an agent, made a crude home video with a friend and sent it to ABC. The network gave him an interview, during which he performed magic. They interviewers were dumbfounded and gave him a contract.

David took the magic community by storm with his first ABC special “David Blaine: Street Magic.” Virtually unknown before the broadcast, the name David Blaine was immediately on the lips of most magicians. He topped that by being buried alive for five days, during which he remained on public display in New York City to promote his special, “David Blaine: Magic Man.” He has done to magic what Michael Jordan did to basketball. He has set a new standard for what audiences expect in a magic show.
