1. David Copperfield
David Copperfield is famous for making the Statue of Liberty disappear and walking through the Great Wall of China, but his biggest feat yet is making a large fortune appear. How big? $800 million dollars for now, says Forbes, but he may be well on his way to making it to the billionaire list. Recognized as the most successful modern magician to date, he has sold an estimated 40 million tickets and has made and estimated $3 billion worth of gross tour revenues. His collection includes $200 million worth of magic memorabilia, including the largest collection of Harry Houdini artifacts in the world, not to mention 11 islands in the Bahamas that are worth over $100 million.
