In the last thirty years, a new breed of magicians has entertained us. In 1974, Doug Henning starred on Broadway in the musical The Magic Show. Four years later, street magician Jeff Sheridan published Street Magic - An Illustrated History of Wandering Magicians and Their Conjuring Arts. Web magic sites started with magic stores in 1994. David Blaine's first TV special appeared in 1997; his latest was only a few weeks ago. David Copperfield and Penn and Teller have appeared almost non-stop in Las Vegas for years, along with Criss Angel and others.
Who's your favorite magician today? Who would you have liked to see perform in the past?
