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 MINDFREAK, 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 brings “an estimated $150 million a year into the local economy” (Newsweek) and generates a whopping “$70 million a year” personally (Businessweek), proving time and again that he is the most successful magician ever.
His hit series MINDFREAK on A&E resulted in more hours of magic during primetime than any other magic show ever. The series was viewed regularly by more than 100 million viewers in over 90 countries. For over a decade, Criss has had the “#1 best-selling magic show in Las Vegas” (Extra). 2019 marked the end of his historic 10-year run at the Luxor, with the grand opening of Criss Angel MINDFREAK® in the newly renamed Criss Angel Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino Las Vegas. This concert spectacle features never-before-seen sequences – including a revolutionary finale nearly twenty years in the making. MINDFREAK® is Las Vegas’ – the entertainment capital of the world – first high-tech immersive experience. Vanish Magazine, the world’s preeminent magic publication, called it “the greatest magic show of all time!” Celebrity Radio rates it as “the best show in Las Vegas!”, and the BBC gave it “10 stars!”.
Angel is the most watched magician in Internet history – a YouTube sensation. His “Walk on Water” clip has generated over 60 million views alone, and all his clips combined have over a half a BILLION views. Criss also has the largest social media following of any illusionist, with nearly 7 million followers.
Criss has been named “Magician of the Year” an unprecedented six times, was the youngest magician inducted into the International Magicians Society Hall of Fame, was named the first recipient of “Magician of the Decade,” as well as “Magician of the Century” and “Innovator of the Decade.” Most recently, Angel was given the highest honor in the magical arts – the Lifetime Achievement Award from the largest and most prestigious magic organization in the world (the nearly one hundred-year-old International Brotherhood of Magicians). It has only been given five times in the IBM’s history, and Criss is the youngest artist ever to receive it and the only magician performing today that has been presented with this award. In 2017, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce honored Criss with the 2,615th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The star was dedicated at 7018 Hollywood Boulevard next to the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and across the street from the star of Houdini.
