Houdini? Thurston? Blackstone (either), my Uncle Pete and his tired old "coin from your ear" trick at a family get together? Am I close to answering your question?

A silly question really.

Best escapologist?
Best card man?
Best Coin Man?
Best illusionist?

"Best" is purely subjective anyways. I enjoy the work of many performers without having to have them somehow compete against each other....

OK smart remarks aside, it is often bad to ask, "who is the best," and here is why; The best at the top of my list, may very well be at the bottom of someone elses list.

Some new kid on the block is going to say that Blaine and Lance Burton are the best because that is all they know at which time the "pros" will say, "What are you stupid? What about all the work such and such a person has done."

The battle lines are drawn and people takes sides, "If he stands up we'll all stand up, it will be Anarchy!" (gotta love the Breakfast Club)

In the end nothing gets answered.
My thoughts.

I do think that there are peolple that are the BEST at something. For example, I think that making BIG things dissapear and/or levitate, we have two that are clearly over the rest: Franz Harary and David Copperfield.
