Penn Jillette, of Penn & Teller, stated, “the biggest breakthrough done in our lifetime was David Blaine’s ‘Street Magic,’ where his idea was to do really simple tricks but to concentrate… to turn the camera around on the people watching instead of the people doing. So to make the audience watch the audience, which that first special ‘Street Magic,’ is the best TV magic special ever done and really, really does break new ground.”
