David Blaine is a unique magician who doesn't perform on stage. With only card deck as his weapon he takes his magic to the open-air. He wanders over the country and walks around in the city streets stopping people to be his audience. During this program he visits various cities and shares some of his thoughts with Leonardo DiCaprio. They say laughter is the best medicine and if that's true then I guess watching this show regularly is just what the doctor orders to be healthy. I saw this program completely accidentally (like it always is with these TV specials) but I was wise enough to tape it. I had so much fun watching it I just simply had to see it again even couple of times.
I can honestly say that I have no recollection of when was the last time I laughed so hard. What I love most about this show are people's different amusing reactions to Blaine's inconceivable tricks. What would you think if a guy on the street would ask for a coin, bite a piece off from it and then spit it back? How would you react if someone would start to levitate right in front of your eyes? I really don't know what to think about this crazy guy and his simple yet unbelievable tricks but at least he kicks the crap out of David Copperfield. His style is so calm, sympathetic and modest. "David Blaine: Street magic" was truly a barrel of laughter and if you ever get a chance to check it out don't miss it. 9/10.
