David Blaine's BEST TV special to date!
26 November 2013 | by Cpt_JackSparrowSee all my reviews

I must have watched this at least 17 times now. I absolutely love David Blaine and have been watching him since his very first TV special aired. I have seen all his specials and even read his book.

This is by far his best and most entertaining special mostly because we get to see the reactions of many iconic celebrities and watch them be captivated and taken into a magical world and be mystified as many of us have been whenever we watch one of David's epic specials.

Even if his special didn't feature celebrities it would still remain epic but it's always fun to see some great celebrities be scared out of their wits, emotionally touched, mentally drained, laugh hysterically at something they can't believe they just saw and I could go on.

David is truly an artist, the pure fact that he is able to pierce objects right through his body (without a drop of blood to show for it) and drink kerosene just to entertain and push himself past his limits shows just how dedicated he is to his craft.

I await eagerly for his next special and performance.
