Where Houdini Lives
Aside from HOUDINI all other escape artists are, excuse the expression, lame. HH had a pesonality, magnetism and aura totally unmatched by any other escape artist.
I'm going to take a wild guess that one of the people on the list submitted the list. And there is nothing wrong with that really, promotion is promotion. I do have issue with David Blaine being on there though. He doesn't do escapes, nor should he. He is an excellent performer in his own right.
