The OnlineSeats Las Vegas Series: Get David Copperfield Tickets or Get Magic-ide

David Copperfield may have been the subject of parody on Arrested Development, but the man who is known for his flair for the dramatic has shown he is not without a sense of humor. Recently he paired with Funny or Die to “threaten” Harry Potter and JK Rowling with an “Accio Cease and Desist” sent via certified owl.

Sometimes it is difficult to remember, but Copperfield is a consummate performer and has even tried to bridge the gap between illusion and acting. Lest we not forget, his IMDB list includes an appearance as Ken the Magician in the Jamie Lee Curtis Canadian horror vehicle “Terror Train”. Now, spoiler alert, Copperfield’s Ken is not the killer, this time, but then he did not have a reason for revenge! So, perhaps Mr. Potter and Mrs. Rowling should watch out before David goes all Copperfield on them and drops the Statue of Liberty on them.

Seriously, “David Copperfield vs. Harry Potter” is comedy gold. The world’s most successful magician has a little fun with the world’s most successful author with a little help from an Internet genius laugh factory. Now enough of my alluding to its content, the clip is below:

Now, his show at the Hollywood Theater in the MGM Grand Las Vegas is going to be far less of a farce and feature much more amazing illusion, so find your David Copperfield tickets for any of his performances at OnlineSeats and enjoy an evening with the true master, or else watch out for a 151-foot copper statue floating mysteriously overhead.

The OnlineSeats Las Vegas Series: David Copperfield Tickets Not David Copperfield Television Special

Way back at the end of June a man in a red jacket walked across the Thames River in London. This was a stunt meant to promote his new BBC television show Dynamo: Magician Impossible. The stunt did not quite have the effect he (Dynamo) hoped though. The National, an English-language publication based in the Middle East, questioned whether or not the age of the illusionist, or at least the televised illusionist, is over.

Now, David Copperfield has seemingly been immune from this suggestion. Yes, television served as the medium by which he made his career, a career in which may have made him a billionaire and allowed him to purchase a group of 11 islands in the Bahamas and renamed them “The Islands of Copperfield Bay”. For those who do not know, despite his impressive history as a magician before he even turned 18, his big break came after a chance meeting with an ABC executive in 1977 that led to Copperfield hosting “The Magic of ABC”.

However, Copperfield has avoided the small screen since 2001, after the Magic of David Copperfield XVII: Tornado of Fire earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Art Direction for a Variety or Music Program. Instead, he returned to the stage and sold David Copperfield tickets to 500 performances a year. This made him one of the highest grossing solo performers in the world while the networks and cable stations flooded the television schedule with a new generation of illusionists.

There was Criss Angel, who executives felt had the edgy style to attract the metal and hard rock audience, coming to the stage with crazy hair, eyeliner, modern hard rock music blasting in the background, and women in bikinis. There was David Blaine, who seemed to specialize in the equivalent of magic marine camp stunts, standing on a small platform for days, encased in ice for days, not eating for days, etc.

Now, every trend had its backlash, and perhaps this backlash came quickly. Perhaps the ultimate sign that the time of the illusionist on television had passed was when the cult classic comedy Arrested Development took aim at David Copperfield and other illusionists. The character Gob (George Oscar Bluth) is the founding member of the “Magicians’ Alliance” and a narcissistic screw up.

So, while Angel and Blaine were busy on televisions, Copperfield has succeeded touring the globe and occasionally taking up residence in Las Vegas. Currently, David Copperfield is performing at the Hollywood Theater in the MGM Grand Las Vegas, where he is outperforming Criss Angel’s competing Cirque du Soleil production.

David Copperfield Tickets for Las Vegas at the MGM Grand This Week

David Copperfield is Las Vegas and he has returned to the Strip to grace the stage at the MGM Grand and amaze the audience with his vast array of illusions and prove to a new generation that he is illusion in Vegas, not Criss Angel.

Yes, Criss Angel may have a show with the backing of Cirque du Soleil, but Believe will never quite live up to the man that has earned over $1 billion in ticket sales throughout his 40 year career and has stopped his on going “Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion” world tour to reside at the Hollywood Theater and put on an incredible 15 shows a week for the rest of the year 2011.

His show is quite Spartan in comparison to his main illusionary adversary, no troupe of contortionists, no multimillion dollar set pieces, and no backing from the most creative minds on the Las Vegas strip. No, David Copperfield tickets for an “Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion” are quite straightforward. He stands in the middle of the room on a circular stage, exposed with nothing more than his incredible mind to stun the audience.

And the audience always leaves stunned. His shows are legendary and have withstood the test of time, which is why they continue to sell out around the world and why he is always welcome back to Sin City.

This week he is playing two shows on Thursday, two on Friday, three on Saturday, and two on Sunday.
