David Copperfield’s death saw

We all know David Copperfield as one of the best-known classic magicians ever and his favorite trick was the death saw a magic act in where he split himself in half using a giant saw blade.

Copperfield used an assistant for the latter part of his body, in order to perform the illusion.

Together they seemed to be just a single person. The secret of this trick is in the table beneath and the tiny gap between the tables that the saw blade can easily pass through.

Passing through the wall

Passing through the wall

Although it may seem like Hogwarts magic, the performance is quite easy. There’s a wall on the stage that looks and feels very realistic.

A magician approaches the wall from one side and the assistants hide him with special screens on wheels. The exact same construction is put on another side of the wall. A few seconds later the magician appears on the opposite side of the wall.

There’s a special V-shaped tunnel going under the wall. That is why the spectators who study the wall and how solid it is, don’t find anything the wall is fine, the floor is not. The magician needs just a fraction of a second to go through the small tunnel going under the wall and stand on the other side of it.

Turning water into ice in a second

The trick here lies in the cup which already contains a piece of ice along with a sponge that’s the same color as the cup. The sponge is fixed to the bottom of the cup and will absorb the water that is poured in. So when the magician turns the cup upside down, the ice falls out into his hand while the water remains in the sponge.

Ladies and gentlemen, and the trick looks like, An illusionist pours some liquid into a cup and a moment later it’s turned into a cube of ice.

Alesha signed the note, Jamie folded it and showed the audience. While he was folding the note, he had a palmed piece of paper in his hands that he instantly switched to. Now, with the signed note still in his hand, he took a bag from Alesha and with the note in his hand reached into the bag, stuffed the lemon, and took it out, showing the audience only one side of it.
