Magic Shop for Magic Tricks
Magic tricks and illusions have been performed throughout history for not only entertainment, but also as a method of cheating in gambling (often times with card games). Harry Houdini is prehaps the most famous magician of all time. His blend of traditional sleight of hand card tricks and elaborate escape stunts kept his audience guessing. He was well known for his handcuff and straigt-jacket escapes, but his most famous trick was his Chinese Water Torture Cell. Though many of today's magicians perform more elaborate stunts, they can't quite reach the level of awe and mystery of Harry Houdini.
More current magicians (or illusionists as some prefer to be called) include:
1. Criss Angel, whose A&E show MindFreak is a huge hit
2. David Blaine, known for his endurance and escape stunts
3. David Copperfield, who tours the world putting on elaborate shows
4. Lance Burton, whose long running Vegas show is a hit
Types of Magic Tricks
Sleight of Hand - These magic tricks include traditional card tricks and other magic tricks that have a close up audience, such as cups and balls. Many beginner's magic tricks are sleight of hand.
Illusions - These magic tricks tend to be more elaborate stage tricks such as cutting a person in half, disappearing tricks, etc.
