Former South Africa Magic Champion, Stuart Lightbody, was asked by the Capetonian radio station CapeTalk to comment on the recent revelations that the world-famous magician David Copperfield has been forced to reveal one of his most dazzling illusions in a recent court case.
Copperfield was ordered to reveal the secret of his signature “Lucky #13” vanishing trick, after a negligence lawsuit was filed against him.
The trick traditionally sees him line up 13 audience members on stage. He makes them them disappear, and they re-appear later at the back of the room.
An audience member has sued the magician, claiming he was badly injured while participating in the illusion in 2013.
