Is Criss Angel a hoax?

I've heard he is a magician and an illusionist.

I don't believe Chris Angel is a hoax, he is just very good at the illusions he does. I've always wondered how he does that stuff.

He is a hoax if you think what he is doing isn't more than being an illusionist. Most of his "tricks" are the hand is quicker than the eye (like most magicians). There is a way he does all of the things he doesn, he is just very good at it.

The hand is not quicker than the eye. That is moronic.  add a comment

Criss Angel displays an uncanny ability to perform almost unhuman and impossible stunts or tricks. Someone like him in his profession makes a living off of fooling people by confusing their eyes as well as their brain. When your brain does not comprehend what your eyes see, you often believe what you see is real.

Criss Angel is an illusionist; that is, he is trained to trick his audience, and make them believe it is real. In that sense, he is not a hoax; however, his tricks cannot be "real" in the sense of being something you or I could do. Things like floating and cutting people in half are tricks -- for fun, not real.

A magician and an illusionist are the same thing. Criss Angel is a very good illusionist or magician, which ever you prefer.
