Strip Scribbles: Criss Angel at odds with Britain’s Steven Frayne
“Mindfreak” magician Criss Angel is on the warpath against an alleged British copycat, and our “Believe” at the Luxor headliner started an overnight campaign to have his fans shut down the supposed imposter.
Steven Frayne has been performing on a reality TV series in England. Criss says that Dynamo, as he bills himself, has copied his trademark look and is performing his tricks, too.
Criss created, produced, directed and starred in “Mindfreak” on A&E for six seasons from 2005 to 2010. Dynamo’s TV show in Britain is titled “Magician Impossible,” and Criss just learned that a second season began there last month.
Blasted Criss: “I was disappointed and disgusted by this. Someone in the U.K. is blatantly ripping me off. I need help from all my fans to spread the word about it, to show their support and let their voices be heard.”
Criss also points out similarities with his “Mindfreak” advertising and promotions. Producers of the British series promptly pulled down its YouTube video of Dynamo after learning of Criss’s outrage.
