Master illusionist David DaVinci has made a name for himself as a top-notch entertainer and world class magician.
He has only been with Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus for a year and a half, but when he came to the "Greatest Show on Earth" he'd already completed two world tours with sold out performances in over 20 countries. DaVinci has also appeared in numerous television programs and holds several Guinness World Records.
DaVinci's manager, who used to be a clown, knew the owners of Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus, When he found out that they wanted to build a whole show around magic, he got in touch with the Felds of Feld Entertainment and arranged a private showcase. DaVinci performed before a total of four people and was offered a job on the spot, The next day, the contracts were sent to him.
DaVinci began his magic career at an early age. When asked how he became involved in the craft, he said, "My brother got a magic kit for Christmas and he stuck it in the closet, and I was about six years old when I started learning tricks and by the fifth grade I did my first show. Everytime I would do one show, I'd get two more out of it and then I'd get four more." He added how doing magic kept evolving and when he got into high school, he was making good money at it, performing at elementary schools and private parties receiving anywhere from $500 to $2500.
