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.

The great decievers the Devil transforms into an angel of light. So for Chris notanangel is a great trickster. And by the way I heard a long time ago he's supposed to be Christian but I haven't seen anything that proves to me that he's a real Christian

My wife and I saw his show at the Luxor in Vegas. We paid a good amount of money for the 3rd row seats and up to this point we were pretty big fans! Honestly, the show was horrible! We was so disappointed! Honestly he could put on a free show in my town and we wouldn’t waste our time. He’s great to watch on TV but not live in person. I wish him and his family the best tho.......very thankful his son is now cancer free!!!

He sold his soul to a “demon” for popularity through tricks. Chris Angel doesn’t do the magic, the Demon does. Most magicians that accept these rolls end up losing to the demon in one of its tricks. And most magicians that do demon magic always do some kind of magic trick debunking or making fun of Jesus Christ (Christ Angel walking on water and pulling fish out of a basket over and over on separate episodes). Demon magic, don’t entertain yourself or the idea of being in the presence of a Magician. Most are not good news... be observant and see for yourself some of the tricks I mentioned. A Demon can’t help itself but to rebuke Jesus Christ through its tricks. And that is how you explain these Magicians, I researched after seeing one float with no wires before and other unexplained tricks. There was an episode of The Carbonero Effect where a Hispanic Woman’s natural reaction to seeing the Magician make a Mermaid appear near the beach in the water and she was right! Look it up on RUvid, she said “this is the work of the Devil” and she is 100% correct. Guard yourselves and seek Jesus only, AMEN!

So, in other words: Chris Angel has studied every useless form of martial art. What Bruce Lee called "the fancy mess" or "organized despair." How apropos.

Everyone in Hollywood has a story. That's what the audience relates to. That's what sells tickets and CD's. The truth is all these people are deceivers. That's the only reason you know their names. IT's the only reason they get awards and statues..

After watching this insulting video on Criss Angel and reading so many hate comments, I guess master magicians like Franz Harary, Lance Burton, Rocco, Siegfried & Roy, Johnny Thompson, Jeff Mcbride, Banachek, James Randi must be idiots because they all praised Criss Angel. And by the way, Grunge might not have heard about International Magicians Society which has the largest number of members but surely they must have heard about the prestigious IBM ( International Brotherhood Of Magicians ) or Magic Castle. If I remember correctly, Criss was bestowed with the highest honors by them. Criss is admired by all in the magic community. Only youtube magicians & amateur magicians hate him as they are jealous of his success. David Blaine might not like his style, but he respects him as a fellow magician. Copperfield hasn't ever spoken about Criss Angel because he is too self centered. Only Penn Jillette has spoken against Angel in recent times which is kind of baffling as I thought Penn & Criss were good friends. Almost all magicians ( including Copperfield ) while performing on TV used plants, paid audiences, and trick photography. It is common for TV magic. But every one of them have performed live on stage and had tremendous success. We should respect the magic community for keeping this brilliant art form alive for so many years, not target certain individuals because of personal hatred or jealousy.
