A History of Magic

David began performing at age 10 around his neighborhood in Metuchen, New Jersey as “Davino the Boy Magician”. By the age of 12 he was admitted to the Society of American Magicians, becoming the youngest person ever to have done so.

David saw magic as a way of getting girls, and fitting in with the other kids when he would otherwise be too shy to talk to anyone. David first appeared on television in 1977, on a show called “The Magic of ABC”. Between 1977 and 2001, there would be 20 David Copperfield TV specials, and most of his TV appearances were on his specials or as a guest on another program.

His Broadway show is 1996 broke box office records, and during this time he also collaborated with Dean Koontz, Joyce Carol Oates, and Ray Bradbury for an anthology of fiction called David Copperfield’s Tales of the Impossible. A Sequel called David Copperfield’s Beyond Imagination was released in 1997.

According to Copperfield, his childhood heroes weren’t magicians, but were stage performers like Gene Kelly and Orson Welles. “They took their individual art forms and they moved people with them… I wanted to do the same thing with magic” says Copperfield. “I wanted to take magic and make it romantic, and make it sexy, and make it funny, and make it goofy… all the different things that a songwriter or a filmmaker gets to express.”
