Storyline

This is the 17th and last CBS Copperfield TV special, introduced by the host Carson Daly and produced six years after the 16th and penultimate one, The Magic of David Copperfield XVI: Unexplained Forces (1995). It is the only TV special with a feat broadcasted live (in USA only) from New York City (the place where both David Copperfield and Carson Daly are present) at the end of the broadcast of a free show performed, filmed and edited three months earlier, in January in a theater in Memphis, Tennessee. The TV special is officially titled "COPPERFIELD - TORNADO OF FIRE", but is better known as "The Magic of David Copperfield XVII: Tornado of Fire", in which "Tornado of Fire" is a reference to such feat, which is not an illusion or escape but a test of courage and endurance, filmed in long take and no more repeated.

Amazing Magic!!!!
4 September 2017 | by senddogsnowSee all my reviews

This is one of the best specials out of the bunch. I have dedicated an entire YouTube channel to the amazing works of this incredible illusionist, Mr. David Copperfield, called "David Copperfield Channel"

The best illusion both here and also from his live show, where he & a selected audience member disappear & reappear half way around the world, absolutely amazing.
