Lucky for you, there is a chance to compensate for that if you happen to be in Las Vegas in June as Rivers Casino will host one of his shows.
In case you didn’t google his name, let us tell you a thing or two about this magician (or even a wizard, if you will). When you type his name in the YouTube search bar, you will find titles such as ‘Chris Rips Bodies Apart.’ Luckily, he is not a serial killer, and all of that is a part of his well-staged magical performance which took magic tricks to the next level.

Who is Criss Angel?
Criss’ real name is actually Christopher Nicholas Sarantakos, and he is a professional American magician of Greek descent. He is one of the most popular personalities connected to magic tricks who gained popularity doing some really interesting and life-threatening magic tricks.
His first TV appearance was back in 1994 when he was a performer on a show called Secrets on ABC. Criss supported Clive Barker and his series, and the two decided to make a film called Lord of Illusions. Angel also cooperated with various other celebrities back in the day, including musicians such as Klayton with whom they released the album called Musical Conjurings from the World of Conjuring.
One of the tricks that made Criss Angel popular worldwide happened back in 2002 when he decided to spend 24 hours in water. This trick required a lot of preparation and Criss risked a lot by being a part of it, one of the things at stake being his life. He was inside the tank for 24 hours and allegedly changed 16 oxygen tanks while underwater. However, his skin reacted to being in the water for too long, and he was hospitalized after that, suffering from severe dehydration.
This trick skyrocketed his career, and he is now one of the most famous magicians around the world. He hosted many magic shows and actively tours across the US. Therefore, if you happen to be in Las Vegas in June, make sure not to miss Criss’ show which is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you should enjoy.
