Dai Vernon (sorry to name drop) told me that Houdini was a terrible magician. He went on and on about him.

Whom would you say was a better performer (notice I did not say magician) over the course of their ENTIRE career, Harry Houdini or David Copperfiled? But before you respond, please base it ONLY on the following criteria...

*Tools, Knowledge, and Resources available in those time periods
*Showmanship
*Creativity
*Deceptiveness
*Connection with their audience

Now thay you made your choice, why (be descriptive)?

Honestly, Harry quit being a magician and just worked on escapes as his main focus. Copperfield is still practicing and perfecting magic.

David probably the better magician, but even today, arguably, Houdini is more famous and his name is even a synonym in itself for the word magic.
