Learn more about David Copperfield.
David Copperfield (born David Seth Kotkin on September 16, 1956) is a world-renowned American magician and illusionist best known for his combination of spectacular illusions and storytelling. His most famous illusions include making the Statue of Liberty disappear, flying, levitating over the Grand Canyon, and walking through the Great Wall of China.
Copperfield was born in Metuchen, New Jersey, to Jewish immigrants from Russia. He began practicing magic at the age of 12 and became the youngest person ever admitted to the Society of American Magicians. By age 16, David was teaching a course in magic at New York University. At age 18, he enrolled at Fordham University and was cast in the lead role of the Chicago-based musical The Magic Man three weeks into his freshman year. At age 19, he was headlining at the Pagoda Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii.
David Copperfield played the character of Ken, the magician in the 1980 horror film Terror Train. He also made an unaccredited appearance in the 1994 film Prêt-à-Porter. Most of his media appearances have been through television specials and guest spots on television programs.
His name is taken from the 1850 Charles Dickens novel.
In 1982, Copperfield founded Project Magic, a rehabilitation program to help physically challenged patients regain lost or damaged dexterity skills. The program has been accredited by the American Occupational Therapy Association and is in use in over 1,000 hospitals worldwide.
David Copperfield at one time was ready to open a "Theme" restaurant called "Magic Underground." There were to be two locations, one in New York City and one in Walt Disney World (built in the shape of a Hidden Mickey). These areas would allow "D.A.V.I.D" (Digital, Audio, Video, Interface, Device) to interact remotely with the guests in the restaurant. It was a high-tech videophone system. Other things such as the very table you were sitting at might "Float" around the room and even the waiters were to be involved performing magic as they brought your order to you. Eventually, the New York project ran into trouble and it as well as the Walt Disney World location was aborted.
Copperfield has also attempted to preserve the history of the art of magic for present and future generations by providing a safe, permanent home for old props, books, and other historical ephemera related to conjuring. His vast collection, known as the International Museum and Library of the Conjuring Arts, is housed in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Forbes Magazine reported that Copperfield earned $57 million in 2003, making him the tenth highest paid celebrity in the world. It also estimated that he made $57 million in 2004 (35th) and $57 million in 2005 (41st) in merchandise and tour revenue. Copperfield performs over 500 shows per year throughout the world.
Copperfield was engaged to the supermodel Claudia Schiffer, but the couple parted ways in 1999 after a six-year relationship. There was speculation that Schiffer was not Copperfield's girlfriend, but was instead a contractor working for him. The popular German tabloid Bild published a fax from Copperfield's management to Schiffer, informing her of Copperfield's itinerary, where she should appear with Copperfield, and her fees. Copperfield labeled the fax a forgery. Richard Jeffries, the father of Schiffer's next boyfriend, art dealer Tim Jeffries, stirred up the controversy further when he publicly stated that Copperfield never had sexual relations with Schiffer. Copperfield's retort was that since Jeffries was never in their bedroom, he couldn't know. Schiffer also denied the accusations by Jeffries.
In February 2006, David's father, Hy (who often accompanied David on his many tours around the world), died in San Diego, CA. David set up a website, rememberhy.com, so fans and friends could pay tribute.
In April 2006, Copperfield and two of his female assistants were robbed at gunpoint after a performance in West Palm Beach, Florida. His aides gave the robbers their money, passports, and a cell phone. However, according to his police statement, Copperfield did not hand over anything. (He later claimed to have used sleight-of-hand to hide his possessions. One of Copperfield's assistants wrote down most of the license plate number, and the suspects were later arrested.
David Copperfield said in August 2006 that he has found the "Fountain of Youth" in the southern Bahamas, amid a cluster of four tiny islands he had purchased on July 14th of that year. He claims that the water brings dead leaves back to life, and brings near dead insects back to life. He said he had hired biologists and geologists to examine its potential effect on humans. This claim echoes the precursor to many of his previous illusions and seems to predict what his next illusion will be.
