This is actually a really hard question IMO. Criss Angel vs David Blaine. Super OG or "cool guy Magician." The argument can be made that they aren't the same kind of magician, Criss Angel is obviously a Mind Freak, as he states frequently. David Blaine does a lot of physical stuff, fake drowning, etc. Neither of them do card tricks, I'm pretty sure. Are they magic? Are they phonies? Are they SHOWMEN?
Check out what we thought about it on this week's episode of Because We Got High - Murder, Magic & Money. It's worth it for our show/movie ideas alone.
