Footage of his greatest performances and a revealing interview with the two-time "entertainer of the year" trace the life of the world's most famous magician.
He was a master magician by the age of 16. His showmanship transformed a vaudeville sideshow into modern entertainment.
David Copperfield is synonymous with magic. He has performed for more people than any other illusionist in history, including the legendary Harry Houdini. He revolutionized magic, making it a spectacle on a grand scale and astounding millions with his seemingly impossible tricks. BIOGRAPHY® uses extensive footage from his long career and interviews with friends, family and David himself to tell the story of the man twice voted "entertainer of the year." Learn how the New Jersey native discovered magic at the age of 10 and was teaching others in only six years. See clips from his record run in The Magic Man, where the teen phenomenon sang, danced, acted and created all the magic for the longest running musical in Chicago's history. Watch him perform signature tricks and get a glimpse of his private life with wife Claudia Schiffer.
From his annual TV specials to winning the prestigious Chevalier Des Arts from the French government, this is a revealing look at a unique entertainer.
