After years of hard work and catching the right breaks, you can enter into the realm of celebrity status. The payoff is considerable for those who dedicate themselves to their performance. Networks could be clamoring to cast you in their next show. Magicians such as Penn and Teller and Criss Angel have had their own television programs. Others like David Copperfield have made money off of their DVD sales. Not to mention getting a show in Vegas. Siegfried and Roy are two of the most famous magicians to work in Sin City. In fact, you can visit their stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Fame doesn’t visit every hardworking magician. Most magicians have to settle for being famous in their own town or at a small local venue. You might call that “recognition” more than “fame.”
