David Copperfield Turns Tables on Stalker

 

 

David Copperfield

David Copperfield?s New York stalker pickets every show, claims the magician is ?supernatural,? and Satan.  Mr. Copperfield said he used to be ?unnerved? by the deranged man.  He designed a trick to push the poor guy over the edge or to end the obsession.

 

Two years ago, Mr. Copperfield?s staff took a picture of the stalker ? wearing his the same overalls he apparently dons each time he tries to attack Satan or Mr. Copperfield.

 

This year, as the show returned to the Big Apple, Mr. Copperfield went outside to meet the protester.

 

“I put the picture in my pocket and my friend took a Polaroid camera and went outside to meet the guy with me. I went up to him and said, ‘Sir, I’d like to introduce myself, I am David Copperfield and I’m sure your heart’s in the right place but I am not supernatural.’

 

“And I said, ‘Would you mind if I get a picture with you..?’ I put my arm around him and my friend took a picture of me, the guy and the sign.

 

“The picture comes out of the Polaroid camera and I put it in my pocket and I took two steps away and I said, ‘You know sir, I would like you to have that picture.?  I reached into my pocket and pulled out the picture from two years ago – the one without me in it. I handed it to him and I walked away.”
