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.

I dated someone that helped David Copperfield with statue of liberty disappearing. I told my date, oh no nookie unless you spill the beans on that one. 3hours later he did. Audience sat on bleachers that rotated so slowly you could not feel it. Done on moonless night. Black curtain too.

Most people sound really ignorant in this comment section, he has always had a love for magic and question his artistry and illusion surreal fantasy, who also does music. He’s also built a fantastic and admirable empire, since he was only 7x influential and positive...

Went to Vegas to see his show. I was so excited. What a major disappointment, a waste of money and a waste of time. He is such an arrogant person. This made him very ugly to me. About 75% of his show was just movie clips about him bragging about himself. The magic wasn't even that good. The tickets were way over price for nothing. I saw a small time magic act in Reno, this show was 100% non-stop amazing magic, that i would defiantly see again and the price was a fraction of the cost. Personally I am sure Criss Angel could care less what any of us think. He has money why would he even care. He can perform horrible magic that sucks and get rich by it. I did see David Copperfield in Vegas as well. Now David Copperfield is amazing. That's true magic. Criss Angel needs to take lessons from him and be more humble as well.

It’s called Black Magic. He’s not the first one to make a deal with the devil and he won’t be the last. Been going on for over a century. Look at all the symbolism; stars, skulls, crosses, Devil->Angel... there are no tricks to the trade. He’s a sell-out just like everyone in Hollyweird.
