My whole life goes back to that camp experience when I was three or four. At age 18, Copperfield enrolled at New York City's Jesuit-based Fordham University , but three weeks into his freshman year he left to play the lead role in the musical The Magic Man in Chicago.
It was on this occasion that he adopted the stage name "David Copperfield", taken from the famous Charles Dickens novel because he liked the sound of it.
Copperfield sang, danced and created most of the original illusions used in the show. The Magic Man became the longest-running musical in Chicago's history.
Copperfield's career in television began in earnest when he was discovered by Joseph Cates, a producer of Broadway shows and television specials.
Most of his media appearances have been through television specials and guest spots on television programs. His illusions have included the disappearance of a Learjet , the vanishing and reappearance of the Statue of Liberty , levitating over the Grand Canyon , walking through the Great Wall of China , escaping from Alcatraz prison , the disappearance of an Orient Express dining car and flying on stage for several minutes One of his most famous illusions occurred on television on April 8, A live audience of 20 tourists was seated in front of a giant curtain attached to two lateral scaffoldings built on Liberty Island in an enclosed viewing area.
Copperfield, with help from Jim Steinmeyer  and Don Wayne , raised the curtain before lowering it again a few seconds later to reveal that the space where the Statue of Liberty once stood was empty.
A helicopter hovered overhead to give an aerial view of the illusion and the statue appeared to have vanished, with only the circle of lights surrounding it still present and visible.
Before making the statue reappear, Copperfield explained in front of the camera why he wanted to perform this illusion.
He wanted people to imagine what it would be like if there were no liberty or freedom in the world today and what the world would be like without the freedoms and rights we enjoy.
Copperfield then brought the statue back, ending the illusion by saying that "our ancestors couldn't enjoy rights and freedoms , we can and our children will".
Both the disappearance and the reappearance of the statue were filmed in long take to demonstrate the absence of camera tricks.
He disappears and reappears, gets cut in half, makes audience members vanish and others levitate. Copperfield climaxes his show with a flying routine, seven years in the making, that defies both logic and visual evidence, he could probably retire just by selling his secrets to future productions of Peter Pan ".
