David And Dessa Blaine: The Magic Way

Posted by Michael on April 2nd, 2020

We have not found any ratings for David Blaine: The Magic Way yet (but I am writing this in the morning) but if the Internet is any indication the breakout star of the special is Dessa, David’s daughter. If you missed last night’s special or just want to see it again is is streaming for free over on

Did you have a favorite bit? What did you think about the show? Can you believe it has been 23 years since Blaine burst on to the magic scene with his first TV special? Feel free to comment!

Grab the kids, sit back and enjoy Nash Fung’s online magic show! Apparently a friend of Nash’s works at an elementary school and asked Nash if there was any way he could do something for all the kids learning from hom. It runs a little over 10 minutes and is obviously kid friendly.

Thanks, Nash! Be sure to visit Nash’s website and if you want to share this with a teacher or parent in your life, you can find this show on Nash’s YouTube site.
