France’s Funniest Magician
David Stone

David Stone discovered the art of magic and of card manipulation at age 19 and, at 23, he won the Diavol Grand prix (France Championships of Magic).

At 24, he won the Gold Dove (close-up category) kind of European championships of magic organized in France. The same year, David won the Close-up Grand Prix of South America in Las Tunas, Cuba.

In 1995, David met the French magician Stéphane Jardonnet who truly launched his career by producing a video starring David (Basic Coin magic vol.1). This video became the first French magic program ever sold on the American market: With over 28.000 copies run out in 40 countries, this video became a huge best-seller.

After a degree in Philsosphy at the Amiens University, David decided to become professional magician : He went to Saint-Tropez and started working in some of the most prestigious restaurants of the Riviera, including 7 years in La Voile Rouge, an amazing beach restaurant where he really learnt his job.

Thanks to his videos, but also to a good sense of communication, Stone starts to be known in the world of professional magicians. From 1999, this sudden notoriety allowed him to perform his lecture on the art of Table hopping (professional magic in restaurants) in the Magic Conventions of more than 19 countries and to become one of the most famous French magicians abroad.

In 2003, the FFFF convention, the most prestigious gathering of close-up magicians in the world, voted David as the Most Valuable Performer.

His last book (2005) ‘Close-up: The real secrets of magic” is a huge best-seller in France and was sold out in less than 15 days after its release. The DVD “The Real Secrets Of Magic” (2006) adapted from this book was just nominated Best Magic DVD 2006 by Genii Magazine (US), Magie Magazine (DE) and over 14.000 copies were sold in 13 months.

On August 2006, David won the 3rd prize at the World Championships of magic (FISM) and was voted on April 2008 TMW Award for Best Magician 2008.
