That's quite a trick.

And for his next trick, he'll make everyone else's 401K disappear.

Good for him. He started out as a nobody and built quite a career for himself.  I guess subby expects us all to get pissed off that someone dared to be successful in life.

It's mostly from his Vegas show.  Given the context, trick is acceptable.

$800 million isn't 'successful'.  More like 'beyond the reach of mere mortals, no matter how worthy'.

Hey, everybody. Just another little reminder that in no form that isn't absolute fiction do I exist.       --- God

I'm just as good at "sleight of hand" movements as him...maybe better.

/it's just that mine involve a keyboard/mouse and several well known porn sites

There has to be a God.  Otherwise there would be no Devil, thus eliminating the only possible excuse that a hack like Copperfield was able to amass his fortune by selling his soul to him.

I don't necessarily agree with this assessment...unless you're talking Kid Rock.

I guess he got dibs on that new island off Pakistan.

Is this the guy who's an alleged kidnapper and rapist?  I get my illusionists confused.

How the fark does David Copperfield have 800 million dollars?

He found the barrels of money Uriah Heep had stashed out in the desert.

I thought that all those accusations against him were proven demonstrably false.  I could be misremembering though.

Of course he is such a nerd and so inept with women that he paid a supermodel millions to pretend to be his girlfriend. When it comes to women attracting abilities he is just like the vast majority of Farkers.

You may be right, I lost attention once it was initially reported.  I would probably be nefarious if I had my own string of islands though, so I dont doubt its within reason for someone who has lived in Vegas for 30 years to do something like this.

I think those were staged to dispell rumors that he's gay.

He says one of the islands has the "fountain of youth" on it.

"Nefarious" would be the kindest word one could say about me if I had a string of islands.  I would Dr. Moreau the shiat out of that place.

Perhaps have your exotic birds act as janitors on the beach?  I found that a bit...unique.

Exactly.  After a certain point (I'd say a few tens of millions), any more than that shows you are a greedy bastard.

Nobody could prosecute due to lack of jurisdiction (private island).  His kind of money buys elite legal protection & plenty of NDAs; they say there have been more rape/imprisonments than the one that actually made the news.

Unless El Diablo is the one true god, and his greatest illusion was the smoke-and-mirrors God of the Bible, to keep Xians' attention diverted, while he plies his tricks, er illusions.

/His audience is afraid to laugh.

Well I made 100 million dollars last year masturbating in public. Respect me.

So what are the odds of him creating a Mistress Miracle?

He always manages to settle. Three or four women have dropped charges here in Vegas. I'm sure he's paying them quite well after the fact. The locals know not to go backstage if invited after a show.

I highly recommend watching this.  Louis Theroux is brilliant, and this episode gets to the heart of hypnotists/magicians/scumbags.

Holy crap.  Toby Keith is worth more than $300 million.

30 plus years of making millions of dollars a year. I know the guaranteed pay out for his Vegas act used to be, might still be, more than any professional athlete got in a year.
