About Criss Angel
For more than a decade, Criss Angel has dominated the world of magic as the biggest name on the planet. From his role as star, creator, executive producer and director of the most successful magic television series of all time, Criss Angel MINDFREAK on A&E Network, to his #1 best-selling Las Vegas stage show Criss Angel BeLIEve (in partnership with Cirque du Soleil® and MGM Resorts), to countless critically acclaimed television specials and series, best-selling books, top-grossing retail products, music CDs and more, Angel is the most influential and imitated magician of the modern era. Hailing spectacular reviews from outlets such as Bloomberg Businessweek, who called him “the biggest name in Las Vegas magic,” Angel proves time and time again that he is a true force to be reckoned with.
His hit series MINDFREAK on A&E is the most successful magic show in television history, resulting in more hours of magic during primetime than any other magic show ever. The series continues to be viewed regularly by more than 100 million viewers in over 90 countries. According to police in Clearwater, Florida, the live broadcast of the show’s “Building Implosion” episode drew approximately 50,000 people to the venue, resulting in the largest crowd ever for any magician, rivaling Houdini. “Criss is the Best, THE BEST,” said Oprah Winfrey. Angel’s most recent series, Criss Angel BeLIEve, premiered on Spike on October 15, 2013 as Spike TV’s most-watched original series premiere in more than 18 months. In November 2013, Endemol, the world’s largest independent production and distribution company, announced that it had acquired the international television distribution rights (outside of North America) to the series, and now the show is seen in over 100 countries worldwide.
Angel is also the most watched magician in Internet history—a YouTube sensation. His “Walk on Water” clip has generated over 60 million views alone, and all of his clips combined have generated more than 300 million views. Criss also has the largest social media following of any illusionist, with six million followers.
This October he is back home on A&E with a vengeance in his latest television special, TR!CK’D. Performing ground-breaking illusions with a brand new, in-your-face approach with the likes of Paris Jackson, Steve Aoki, Paige Van Zant, Gary Oldman, Miles Brown and more.
Angel has received numerous awards throughout his career. He has been named “Magician of the Year” an unprecedented six times, including from The Magic Castle—far more than any other magician. He was the youngest magician inducted into the International Magicians Society Hall of Fame. Criss was also presented with a lifetime achievement award, The World Magic Legacy Award “A Living Legend,” at The World of Magic Seminar in Las Vegas. Additionally, Angel was recently named the first recipient of “Magician of the Decade,” as well as “Magician of the Century” and “Innovator of the Decade.” Angel received an International Magic Lifetime Achievement Award and was unanimously selected as the recipient of the 22nd Louie Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Art of Magic.
