If it’s November Sweeps than it must be time for the next David Blaine special. Tonight ABC rolls out the newest Blaine special, titled “David Blaine: Real or Magic”. Blaine has in the past been buried alive, stood in the middle of electrical fields, and frozen in a block of ice. Tonight it appears Blaine’s taking on another unbelievable challenge, entertaining A-List actors. ABC’s description of tonight’s special is overflowing with big time celebrities.
David Blaine returns to primetime television in a groundbreaking new special David Blaine: Real or Magic, this November on the ABC Network.
David Blaine’s signature brand of street magic mystifies the most recognizable celebrities in the world, including Jamie Foxx, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Ricky Gervais, Katy Perry, Woody Allen, and Robert DeNiro, to name a few. He goes into the homes of Kanye West and Harrison Ford, Will Smith and Olivia Wilde. He visits Stephen Hawking at his office in Cambridge University. Blaine also travels the world, astonishing people from all walks of life with never-before seen, inconceivable magic.
The special has bigger talent than the Daytime Emmys. Blaine has a celebrity for every demographic. He even visits scientist Stephen Hawking, which feels like a SNL bit, but according to ABC is real. My favorite part about the David Blaine experience is his monotone voice. He might have just “levitated” in front of Woody Allen, but he still sounds like he’s formalizing his tax returns.
Can’t imagine how special it will be when Blaine joins forces with America’s A-Listers then check out this preview of the show featuring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Spoiler, they love the trick.
The brand new David Blaine special kicks off tonight on ABC.
