Chris angel

Does anybody think Chris Angel is a fake or a real psychic? Does he have wires, magnets, or something?

"Fake" is too strong a word. He's a mentalist, which means he does psychic-like "effects" (or tricks.)

Generally what you see of such shows as presented on TV do not always appear as they might if you were there in person. A good example of this is David Blaine with his street magic (and I mean the real David Blaine, not the hilarious David Blaine impersonator on YouTube with his two equally hilarious marks.)

Chris angel is a Illiusionist,creating illusions for everything he does. So yes of course its all fake and i really doubt he actually practices any magick art on his own time. And the magic shows like lance burton , etc , are all illuisionist, its not magick what hes doing. Real magick like magick arts refer to the use of manuiplating energy.

Exactly right. People who are educated on ways to manipulate the human mind can appear to be magical if they don't tell you what they are doing. He uses techniques that anyone can learn. Also, most of his tricks on television where he says "this is undedited" is a lie. Just because someone says that the footage you see is unedited doesn't mean they are telling the truth. You want to believe him, and when people say that kinda thing the average person will give them the benefit of the doubt. He seems like a nice guy, I bet he is telling the truth.

Wrong, the show is heavily edited. A lot of his tricks aren't even magic tricks, but heavily edited camera footage. When he goes out "on the street" all of those people in the crowd were hired by Chris Angel. The guy who says I never met Chris Angel before today and I can't believe what he just did is lying.

The stunts and illusions on this program were designed an tested by Criss Angel, a highly-trained professional.

I think this should be your answer.

If it was real, Chris Angel would be locked up inside experimental labs where "they" could find out his secrets :)

I don't know a whole lot about Criss Angel, have barely watched his show, etc....but I do know from what I've seen of him he has been pretty clear that he is merely an illusionist. He admits what he is doing is simple trickery. No big deal. Magic is fun.

But I do seem to remember him getting into it with Uri Geller and some "psychic" trying to make a name for himself. Good for Criss. There's a difference between being an entertainer and trying to make your name or fortune by hurting people or deceivingly them improperly.

True.

If you want to learn about him yourself, go to Vegas and hang out at the Alladin or wherever he's staying nowadays and you can sign up to be there when he films his stuff. They'll make you sign a non-disclosure agreement and you'll leave feeling deflated at what a phony he is.

I hate chris angel he's a fuitbat. I seen this one show on NBC where it was a bunch of illisionist preforming tricks and chris angel was one of the judges. yeah there was alot of gay people on that show i mean litterally gay. when the magicians were sent home the dudes would all hug eachother, my GF was like shake hands like a man. LOL maybe thats why he was one of the judges.
