I saw David Blaine at the Paramount in Seattle last night and had a great time. From reading show reports from his 2017 schedule it appears much of the show was the same with a few differences. The show started off with a comedic magician who brought a bunch of kids on stage to watch his act and be a bit apart of it. He was entertaining however his name escapes me.

I had never seen David Blaine perform in person before and I really had not watched much of his tv appearances actually either. I was impressed with how David connected with and engaged the audience. I was surprised by how many people he ended up bringing on stage from the audience to assist in his act. I would definitely go see him again.

Don't mean for this to sound like a negative, it's actually a major positive. In Blaine's touring show, he brings spectators onstage for the rest of the audience to know how to react/mirror the spectator's reaction. Plus spectators onstage is to disprove any faked stunt (ex. ice pick) in his act.

Blaine's television specials depended on spectator reactions. He was one of the first television magicians to put the focus on the reactions. Before his first special, magic shown on tv was mostly stage acts, and only showed the audience clapping.
