Magician David Blaine was born on April 4, 1973, to a single mother in Brooklyn, New York. A street
performer provided Blaine’s introduction to magic, as the curious 4-year-old waited for a subway train.
Magic was not his only interest, however, and Blaine went on to attend the Neighborhood Playhouse

gained worldwide media coverage, and thousands gathered at the site near Tower Bridge to witness
his release. In New York in 2006, his “human aquarium” stunt involved submersion in a water-filled
sphere for seven days, receiving air and food through tubes. In a dramatic finale, he failed in his
