Im pretty sure this is the place to post this topic. I heard if you send a self addressed stamped envelope with a picture Criss will send an autograph back to you. So I figure why not, I'm sending an ace of spades with a letter in tomorrow.Its worth a shot. Anyone tried this?

Let us know what happens. I don't think Criss Angel will do anything for you. Now if you were sending it to someone like Mark Wilson you may get an autograph.
Anyhow let everyone here know ok?

I've sent two SASE to Criss Angel over the past year and a half. I've received nothing. On the other hand, Carl Ballantine, Mark Wilson, David Copperfield, Siegfried, Eugene Burger, Max Maven, the Amazing Kreskin, and Randi have all sent back the photos signed.

You can buy autographed Criss Angel DVDs on his website, but would you really want the DVDs?

That is just what I have been saying, the great "Holier Than Though" Criss Angel is a real jerk.

I wonder how many autograph requests he gets a day?
No disrespect to the others you mentioned, but they are not the household names they used to be. Copperfield hasn't been on TV in ages so he's not a face that the entire world sees every day. Not a bash on his skill, it's just that people will remember better the emo guy they saw last night.
So he is probably busier. That's just my opinion on it.
Maybe he's not a jerk, maybe he's trying to run a business and prepare a huge show,and film a tv show, and film the Mandrake movie, and maybe he doesn't have much time in his day for mail.

I disagree with your logic on this. I think someone can remain a household name based on how memorable what made them famous is. Angel has a cable show while DC had network. DC tours and Angel doesnít. Angel has yet to make a real lasting impression with a mega illusion while DC will always have Statue of Liberty. That is something people donít forget. The levitation over Luxor would probably be the closest thing to memorable for Angel, but that didnít have half the machine behind it as DCís special. So I would guess that if you were to go to the mall or airport and poll people, more will know who Copperfield is, even though he hasnít had a special in 7 years.

And if you believe that, I have a nice piece of property in Florida you may be interested in.
Go to the Genii forum and read the article about his majesty Mr.Angel's show in Las Vegas.
Trust me he is a jerk !

I was under the impression that Copperfield couln't tour until his Vegas contract expires. Yes people remember Copperfield, but what I mean is that the guy they remember from the eighties is not the guy that they are likely to write to for an autograph. The guy they saw last night is. I certainly don't wake up the morning after CSI thinking of how great Don Johnson used to be.

As for whether or not Criss Angel is a 'jerk,' well, people said the same thing about Harry Houdini, Marlon Brando, and Bruce Lee. Those are three names that no one will ever forget.

Yes, his ego does get tiring. But I could say the same thing about Lance Burton not coming out after his shows, or David Copperfield not making his museum public. But they are all great at what they do, so who am I to judge? I just sit back and enjoy the show.

Lance doesn't come out after his show, but he did send me a Christmas card and autographed photo after I wrote to him about how much I enjoyed his show. I'm not saying Angel's a jerk (I'm not saying he's not one, either - I never met the guy), but Copperfield was still touring when he sent me a photo.

If someone really wants a Criss Angel autograph, you can join his fan club for $100 and get a free autographed picture. Wowee!

That is about $99.75 too much !

Booey, I wrote Lance too. Took him less than a week to send the autograph. Got it last week with a nice letter. Very cool of him. He's a real Southern Gentleman.
As for Criss "Loyal club," I don't think making people pay for the autographed photo is cool, but James Randi does the same thing with JREF memberships. The second level or so is the photo, couple hundred gets you a letter, couple hundred more gets you a phone call from Randi, couple hundred more gets you a dinner date with Randi... Something like that.
I still think Randi is a heck of a guy and I am grateful for all of the fraud exposures he's done, and his very enjoyable magic history book.
I would love to meet Randi, although at well over 6 feet I'm not sure I could reach down to shake his wee tiny hand:)
I don't really care for Copperfields persona anymore.
Message: Posted by: Ba Ba Booey (Oct 1, 2008 08:46PM)
Critter, if you send Randi a photo and SASE, he'll send you an autograph, no charge. He will personalize it to you, so you can't sell it on Ebay (unless there is another "Critter" looking to buy a Randi autographed photo.
