Why am I not surprised
As a Canadian of a certain age….Doug Henning was a Canadian icon! A weirdo to be sure though!
What a beautiful homage
😂OH MY GOD CRISS LOOKS RIDICULOUS😂
This comment section is bonkers lol.
The impression could be taken as mocking Henning but when Chris praises Henning I believe him.
Aw the end was sad
Very good Doug Henning illusionist would be proud of cool illusionist Criss Angel and David Seth kotkin and franz Harary and magic of reza and Bart kelly and Lance Burton and blackstone Jr and black stone and rjlacmagic and alhastings Alamazing and the pendragons and Ralph Adams and Melinda the First Lady of magic princess tenko Valintino leanered montano the masked magician Tina leanered Rebecca yen penn and teller and every illusionist
This shows that they have the ability to successfully edid
Henning was great!
"Criss angel is a douche bag"
I'm willing to believe that Criss thought he was paying homage with this act, but the problem is seeing him attempt to take on a Henning-esque persona is… cringe-worthy. Perhaps because there's such a huge contrast between the image that Doug Henning puts forward and the one Criss does?
That conversation at the end, though, is the part that really bothers me, though, and I have absolutely no idea why…
so im the moron u was just being one and stop replying back i have a life to start while u dont
Maybe you should read your own post…… moron
There u go being a hater again u dont know nothing about me i have a life i go to college and im a artist so stop HATIN AND GET ONE.
As a magician I respect both Doug and Criss. I think in fairness Criss did mean well but I also don't think he did a good job recreating Doug and his personality
If he wanted a tribute to Doug Henning, Why not play some actual Henning footage. This seemed more disrespectful and sarcastic.
SHUTUP!!!! you are a douche you think you are so cool but your not so STOP HATING
So sweet of u for sharing that information….
My friends and I (13-yr old aspiring magicians) snuck backstage after Henning's show in Houston around 1975. The stage manager kept telling us that Henning had left, but we kept pestering him. Henning heard all of this and came out to talk with us and give us his autograph. He seemed like a genuinely nice guy. As a side note, David Copperfield was doing close up magic on one side of the theater before the show. He was not famous yet.
And to be honest I found this quite funny xD
Guys calm down…to be honest I dont think Criss was making fun of Doug..but doing a tribute to him…not taking the piss out of him…
Is that the audience for BELIEVE?
i love when criss gets crazy !!!!! <3 <3
Gee Doug is my idol but this that just messed up Criss. Sound like you needed a little therapy there. You made him appear to be too spacy . Not very flattering.
@Death2Gadaffi i know you did not just say that criss angle is a dushbag he is awsom and caling him things he is not is making you one criss is crazyasome,hansome,strong,and,sexy so get you facts strait
@zendishwasher2 If they can they will. and dude this is an old comment Drop it XD
@egfregfy4tgf3gtf no creditable magician would ever use camera tricks, it defeats the purpose of magic.
how dare you profane the memory of doug henning. he is a thousand times the magician you'll ever be. just another reason why your the worse thing that ever happened to magic. for those of us that knew doug, he was the man. dai vernon god rest his soul, would agree.
Welcome to my world of magic
what? i Don't Get It
Go Iowa! thats where they got the picture you never see anything about Iowa
At least Doug Henning wasn't emo.
Thats the dude from Jefferson Starship.
For all the smoke he's blowing up Doug Henning's late ass, I have to say this really came off as direspectfull and kind of douchbaggy. And I say that as someone who never particularly cared for DH's brand of magic.
hi im a magician i want to ask something do you like criss angel. did you know that he's 40 i find this very disrespectful to doug henning i feel that t v needs a new magician send me a message on your opinions about criss
@marioblasalegria I know how that is. I never had those things either, because at that time, nintendos, playstations and facebook didn't exist. All I had were pressed steel Tonka construction trucks, Lincoln logs, and tinkertoys. Today's toys deprive today's child of what we had to use in the past, imagination, because it's all programmed for them in those playstations and all the new junk they got !!!!
On top of it,he is disrespectful a real magician,& true legend,with this shit parody,& lousy acting job!
ANYTHING CAN BE ENTERTAINING!
But he is c;aiming to be a Magcan,& making Magicians look like shit!
I'm a 30+ year professional performer. I respect that Criss has done so well. Saying magic is "fake" is simply stupid. It's entertainment. It's all "fake." Magic is emotion. Movies, animation, dance, etc. are all "fake" in the sense that it isn't "real life."
Having said that, my wife and I saw Criss in Vegas this past Oct. It was the worst, most disrespectful show I've ever had the displeasure of seeing. Criss was aweful, and the show was amateurish at best. Cirque wasted $ on this.
Back then we hever had nintendoes, play stations or facebook or any of that stuff magic was our only real entertainment recently its gone big i was raise wth my mentors like Doug Hening i would come home and watch how he did it he was the best the rest of you all r a bunch of emoes and generation x rejects that dont k now good entertainment if it slapped you in the face good one Chris good one…
CRISS'S MAGIC AND ILLUSION ONLY WORKS WITH A PAID AUDIENCE!!!!
Doug Henning was a true great magician, followed by people all over the world. Criss Angel is just a trend, somebody that the world will forget as Milly Vanilly or Ace of Base. It´s a shame that he did this episode because nobody laught and nobody got amazed. Poor guy, being famous for 5 minutes made him become insane, shame for the magic scene.
@MagicForever1 what do you mean with poor taste? doug henning was a legend in the arts of magic.
