What do you really know about Criss Angel? He's one of the most famous magicians of our time, but Criss Angel's story is interesting outside of magic, too.
Here's the untold truth of Criss Angel.
Most magicians get their start as kids. After all, when you're a kid, adults are much more likely to applaud your efforts - even when they can tell that you just switched the cards behind your back.
But some kids are blessed with parents who support their interest long enough for them to cultivate some serious skills. Well, Criss Angel must have had some incredibly supportive parents, because he started practicing magic at the age of 7 and never gave up on it.
According to Biography, Angel, who was still called Christopher Nicholas Sarantakos back in those days, first became interested in magic after his aunt showed him a card trick. He later said he was drawn to the "incredible sense of power, that an adult didn't understand how it worked, but I did."
Angel practiced until he had enough material for a whole show. By the age of 12, he was all ready for his first performance. He even collected a ten dollar fee for his services. So what's the takeaway here? Criss Angel became a magician because he liked having power over people, and he was pretty much always in it for the money. Basically, he was already living the American dream before he even hit puberty.

Chris Angel is the most untalentet magician i ever saw, he is where he is because he is very reach, uses lots of camera effects and fake publicum, there are many magicians out there wich work very hard and hardly make a living out of magic.the quality of the playing cards and theyr price,talk alot about what kind of person he is.reach on the outside but empty on the inside.there is no passion in what he does and he doesnt deserve to be recognise as a magician.

Still can't like this guy. He just doesn't seem genuine to me and we know magic isn't real. That means don't be such a dramatic cocky hot head about it. I also find the religious symbols and such to be very cheesy. Nothing more annoying than a 'bad boy' who also wants to be god boy. I can also see what the ex-girlfriend was hinting at with the rage episodes. I could easily see him being a spousal abuser.

Criss loved having power over IGNORANT people meaning that he has the knowledge which is what he thinks is power and the people that don't know are still trying to figure it out its all just entertainment other than that its all just an illusion only certain people will fall for him so that is ok for some people but he is making money off his publicity stunts its all just a scam lm@o!

Having a short fuse & being a perfectionist/control freak go hand in hand. Criss is a very kind man & loving father. Holly Madison is 'who she is', and that's why she said those things about Criss.

@willie beamen of course it was a work unless Blaine was a pearl diver which he isn't I've never seem the trick you're referring to but I bet I can tell you how it's done. As I said all modern magic tricks are variations of old stage presentations. The trick now is to make people think that street magic is filmed live without editing or photo shopping it is it's been exposed and the audience's are mostly insider's all the celebrities are in on the tricks both Blaine and Angel have been exposed by insider's and magicians who revealed their methods

@racccongenocide1842 and that "work" is really easy when you don't have to worry about things like paying rent and eating. And you don't have to worry about these thing when you are born Into money, therefore you have time to play with magic tricks.
He did tons of work
