I saw that yesterday. Seems like Criss is over(read bad)acting a bit.

Let's see.

One guillotine. $100.00.
Hospital bill. $25,000.
Possible law suit. $1,000,000.

Typical Chris Angel crap. Priceless.

Are you kidding me? Is this for real? All that one guy brought was a roll of paper towels. Must not been that bad of a cut. LOL!!!!

Didn't he fake a car accident a few years ago before his season started?

Well I think if it was for real we would have heard a lot more about it like in regular news just like Roy Horn.

Yet another attempt at free publicity via viral marketing. Watch Criss's acting very closely. We've seen better acting in most community theaters. Notice, it wasn't Criss actually doing anything so he can't be viewed as the idiot that screwed up a guillotine. Why else have a spectator pull the release and him not involved at all?

When you're this far behind at 4th and 40... you have to kick!

Criss just wanted the opportunity to yell the F-Word on a public video.

He's pretty good at it Smile

This was right on par with my 6 year old nephew's starring roll as tree #2 in his school production of "The Happy Gardener", but not as many F bombs.

Seriously, this was made for the 13 year old emo kids who are his fans and those that thought Blair Witch was real, ahem....(Chris Lyle).

We call him Crass Angel. During beLIEve, there was a prediction sequence. Keep in mind the audience is full of kids. (early show) The lady chooses "blow-Job" for a word. Of course Chris totally runs with it. The magician I was there with and I would look at each-other with utter speechless expressions wondering if he "really just said that" throughout the whole show after his total and utter disrespect for the audience he was playing for.
I'm saddened Chris has Tarnished the art, himself and the works of Cirque. (and the Directors / Producers disrespect for the art) If they were smart they'd find the loophole and burn the show to the ground. Even more sad the amazing work gone into production for the talented artists, crew, dancers that ARE a part of the show. They too are being disrespected - Not a good situation.

Well, I think it is safe to say that Cirque has produced a beautiful show, one that should do quite well with a name change, some minor mindfreak tweaks and a real performer.

In other words, get rid of Criss.

Not so sure I'd want to be the guy taking over after Criss. Millions of people have seen Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. How many of them can name any of the Phantom actors that came after Michael Crawford? I say burn it to the ground, **** on the ashes and move on.

It really dosen't matter who comes in after Criss. As a matter of fact they would be better off not using a magician. The show is not a magic show but rather a Cirque show that has some magic in it. Just like Phantom. There is some magic in the show but it is used as part of the script. As far as the other actors after Michael Crawford, it's not about the actor but the show.

OK, I realize that most people can't name any Phantom replacements... but as gulamerian mentions it is the show, or more to the point, a good performance of the character that makes the show work.

IMHO if that video is published I assume that the guillotine was supposed to be part of the show. If it's not publish, we'll be hearing it from the news and at that time it's true for sure...

Kevin, if you were able to name HALF of those without looking them up, you must be the biggest Phantom fan there is. If you DID look any of them up just to prove a point, you have waaaaaaay too much time on your hands.

Well, I'm not Kevin, but I do have a long association with the show and many people in it... I didn't even mention any of the guys from the LA, Chicago, San Francisco, or touring productions! So yeah, I guess I am (one of the) biggest fans of the show!

The vide is FAKE its not anatomically correct. if neck is cut no air passes out of vocal cord or out of mouth. I'll be More Impressed with Criss if he'll come up with things on his own. and to quit hiring Consultants.
